Most Underrated Animated Disney Movies

BKAllmighty
Some of Disney's animated movies get a bad wrap. And while, yeah, some of them aren't great, there are a number of them that deserve better reviews than they receive.

The Top Ten

1 Brother Bear

All of these are underrated. - Pony

This makes me sob.

The book is wonderful!

2 Wreck-It Ralph

It pains me to add this here, but once "Big Hero 6" came out this movie was all but completely forgotten, and it got overshadowed by "Star Wars".

That you can more easily find fans of "Rise of the Guardians" than this movie bothers me.

This movie was and is awesome. A great plot, great characters that have wonderful chemistry together, and beautiful visually. Seen at least a dozen times and totally recommend.

It somehow lost to Brave. That's underrated for sure.

4 The Aristocats
5 Oliver & Company

My 15th favourite

6 The Great Mouse Detective

6th favourite

7 The Hunchback of Notre Dame

It makes me sad to see this as underrated. Quasimodo forever. - Anonymousxcxc

This should NOT be underrated.

8 The Sword in the Stone
9 Atlantis: The Lost Empire

It SHOULD be underrated. It was boring, lacked a great deal, and very dry and dull. Disappointing to someone who loves things that have to do with the ocean.

10 The Fox and the Hound

This was just beautiful.

The Contenders

11 Pooh's Grand Adventure: The Search for Christopher Robin

, I used to watch this movie all the time as a little kid!

12 The Black Cauldron

The most underrated disney movie of all time! - Carsrule300

I'm only voting this because nobody's ever heard of it, pretty much.

13 Treasure Planet

I prefer Scroop over Frollo

I liked the movie, I don't regret it being underrated. - TheXGamer

Overall a beautiful movie

14 The Rescuers
15 Tarzan

I really don't understand why so many people love to hate that movie? Tarzan doesn' have a lot of fans and really makes me sad. In fact people like them make this movie so underrated! I have seen articles to praise arguably mediocre disney movies like Hercules (don't start with this one...)with messy story crapy animation and bland songs and movies like Tarzan with fantastic animation beautiful and unique songs by the legend phil collins tend to be overlooked. Also there are a lot of people who criticize this beautiful movie mostly by phil collin's haters beacause it wasn't musical like the rest disney movies...seriously? Imagine Tarzan sing...oh boy! That's why the broadway musical didn't go well. Having a serious story about a jungle "savage" ape man sing it's strange and doesn't work at all. I respect if some people don't like it mostly for the music because it's very different and unique compare with other disney movies but it has so much other good elements, first of all ...more

Tarzan is a phenomenal film! I'm really surprised that it's underrated. In terms of box office, it's one of the most successful Disney animated films.

Tarzan is such a beautiful story. I love it. Great for boys and girls equally.

I loved it

16 Big Hero 6

I'd disagree, but now that Zootopia's eclipsed EVERYTHING except Frozen...

17 Robin Hood

*tears *more tears Love this movie so much. Foxy ladies too haha

7th favourite

18 Meet the Robinsons

I love this movie it's so cute! it deserves more!

I love this movie! It has such a sweet story and great characters.

19 The Princess and the Frog
20 Planes: Fire & Rescue
21 The Adventures of Ichabod and Mr. Toad

My favourite of the Disney package films

22 Pocahontas
23 The Lion King II: Simba's Pride
24 Cars 2

I really enjoyed this movie. It has the same fantastic characters as the original and it has a cool spy theme. I love the fact that it's like Mission Impossible but still kid friendly so it's enjoyable for the whole family.

I liked this a LOT more than its predecessor. I'm really confused about why it has the worst reviews for a Pixar film.

Pistachio ice cream! Haha

It's a good movie!

25 The Emperor's New Groove
26 Recess: School's Out
27 Bambi II
28 A Goofy Movie
29 Brave

Say that again, whoever commented that you wished Wreck-it Ralph being on this list is a joke. We think it’s NoirRaven! What a f’in cyber bully! He must’ve upvoted the comment about why we give The Lost Emoire too much credit also! FML.

30 Tangled
31 Lady and the Tramp II: Scamp's Adventure

37 The Three Caballeros
38 Fantasia
39 Fantasia 2000
40 Fun and Fancy Free
41 Make Mine Music

Most people are still too hung up on worshiping Zootopia to bother with this one, and it's already lost one major industry award to Zootopia.

45 The Lion King

It deserves more pride

No it does not. TLK sucks.

46 Zootopia
47 Strange Magic
48 Beauty and the Beast (1991)
49 Hercules (1997)

WAY too underrated.
