Top 10 Underrated Animated Movies from the 1980s and 1990s

The Top Ten

1 The Rescuers Down Under

A great movie, this movie should be seen by more people because they deserve something as awesome as this. The opening scene is a boy flying on an eagle which is pure awesomeness to the best level.

2 The Secret of NIMH

Another classic, I loved the atmosphere of the place. The animation was pitch perfect and I love it to this day. Mrs Frisby is such a good character, the owl looks amazing but they add a twist by making him a advisor, not an villain like Disney would've done.

3 The Great Mouse Detective

A very fun Disney movie, the great mouse detective is brilliant version of Sherlock Holmes by Disney which makes everyone maybe or maybe not. The characters are the best apspect espically Ratigan one the most underrated animated character ever.

4 The Fox and the Hound
5 Batman: Mask of the Phantasm

One the best of all time, it is brilliant and I love it and still do and I wish it might even have deserved to win best picture it was good and adult I wish it got more attendation than the Lion King.

6 The Prince of Egypt

This movie is awesome.That is the only word to describe this piece of artwork by Dreamworks. This the best Moses film to date and did lots better than the crappile of Gods of Egypt.

7 Oliver and Company

A very good retelling of Oliver Twist I felt like it could have been better but I was satfied none of the less. I really enjoyed and wished it got more attention.

8 Anastasia (1997)
9 Tarzan
10 The Land Before Time

WOW. What a great movie. It can be sad, touching and funny. I loved it personally and the way it changed Dinosaur movies and was the best dinosaur movie ever.

Love it. - PeeledBanana

The Contenders

11 The Hunchback of Notre Dame

A great dark Disney tale, Hunchback tells us the story of Quasimodo and teaches us about a great morale about prejudicism. The villain is fantastic and one of Disneys best.

12 Antz

People diss CGI movies in the 90s but full CGI movies first started. Before then it was either shorts, or parts of hand drawn which have a CGI part (some Japanese movie)

This movie is underrated, it was funny, CGI was a new thing in the 90s.

It gets a brilliant critical response, but I still find it underrated. WHY? People remember A bugs Life more from their childhoods than Antz does. It is better and I wish it got more attention.

This is great but A Bug's Life is better. - PeeledBanana

13 The Iron Giant

It is low because a lot people do call it one the best. I think not, but still underrated. It is great for kids about being what you want to be. Simariliy to Antz... It is great and sad movie that is not Warner Bros' best, but one of them

I ADORE THIS MOVIE! Recently watched it! - PeeledBanana

14 Balto
15 An American Tail: Fievel Goes West
16 All Dogs Go to Heaven
17 The Adventures of Mark Twain

If you can get past the Mysterious Stranger part, you'll see that this is a pretty good movie.

18 Rock-A-doodle
19 The Last Unicorn
20 Castle in the Sky

This movies is great! Check the score on! It scores a 8.1! Also on rotten tomatoes it scores a 96%! Why does nobody watch this beautiful movie! Made in 1986.

21 The Transformers: The Movie

If you think there are no good Transformers this. It will blow your mind. Proof that Transformers can be done right in a movie.
