The list starts with this woodland Disney classic that probably would have ranked higher if those hunters had not traumatized generations of young viewers.
29. The Jungle Book
In the last animated movie Walt Disney personally supervised, he threw out much of the story from Rudyard Kipling’s original book. Of course, today, people mostly remember the great songs, like The Bare Necessities.
28. Sleeping Beauty
This Disney feature tells the timeless fable about fairies, handsome princes, a witch who turns into a genuinely scary dragon, and narcoleptic royalty.
27. Over the Hedge
DreamWorks’ take on those cute critters rooting around in your garbage, with very funny vocal performance from Bruce Willis, Garry Shandling, and Steve Carell.
26. The Simpsons Movie
A misadventure about the Simpson family told on an epic scale complete with mutant squirrels, President Schwarzenegger and the freakish death of the band Green Day.
25.Ice Age: The Meltdown
Blue Sky studios continues the adventures of Manny, Sid, Diego and especially Scrat who wants nothing more than to protect his prized acorn.
24. Ice Age
The first installment of America’s favorite prehistoric furballs. Yahoo users preferred the original to the sequel, if just barely. How will the third movie fare when it opens next year?
23. Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs
Walt took a big gamble on the first-ever animated feature and scored big. You can thank Disneyland and half the films on this list to Dopey, Sneezy, Grumpy and the rest.
22. Howl’s Moving Castle
This is the first of three movies on the list by Japanese master Hayao Miyazaki. This one features a wizard who turns into a bird, a sentient scarecrow and a ramshackle walking fortress.
To save her dad, Mulan dresses like a boy, befriends a tiny dragon, and thwarts the dreaded White Huns. And what are you doing for Father’s Day?
20. Peter Pan
Walt Disney retells J.M. Barrie’s tale of pirates, lost boys, pixies, and ticking crocodiles.
19. Dr. Seuss’ Horton Hears a Who
Number nineteen of the list by Yahoo! is a movie called “Horton Hears a Who.”
18. Lady and the Tramp
This Disney tale made two dogs and a plate of spaghetti unforgettably romantic.
17. Tim Burton’s The Nightmare Before Christmas
This spooky story about why Halloween and Christmas really shouldn’t mix is the highest rated (and only) stop-motion animated film on the list.
16. Princess Mononoke
Giant wolves, round-headed village sprites, and an otherworldly forest god populate the strange and beautiful world of this film by Miyazaki.
A servant girl turns into a princess with the help of singing mice, pumpkin-powered carriages and some seriously impractical footwear.
14. The Little Mermaid
By returning to the formula of a plucky heroine, a devious villain, a stalwart romantic interest, and endlessly hummable tunes, the Disney animation legacy was reborn.
Sure, only the first ten minutes or so of this film is actually animated, but according to Yahoo! Users, that’s enough to end up on the list.
12. Shrek 2
Shrek meets his in-laws, battles a sword-wielding kitten, turns human, and realizes he’s lovable just the way he is in the highest-grossing animated movie of all time.
An anthropomorphized automobile that learns the good life is not found in the fast lane in the first (but certainly not last) Pixar movie on this list.
10. Monsters, Inc.
For all the kids scared of the creepy shadows in their closet, Pixar throws open the door to show them those monsters really just want to make them laugh.
9. Spirited Away
This beautiful and mysterious Miyazaki movie features a supernatural bath house, stink spirits, and a white dragon. It’s also highest-grossing Japanese film in history.
Robin Williams steals the show as the fast-talking, three-wish granting genie, paving the way for boom in celebrity voice actors as seen in Shrek, Toy Story, and Monsters, Inc.
7. Beauty and the Beast
Brainy young village girl + very hairy Prince Grumpy = fairytale romance. This is the first, and thus far only, animated movie ever to be nominated for a Best Picture Oscar.
6. Toy Story
Pixar’s – and the world’s – first full-length computer animated movie was a breakthrough in technology. But it’s on this list because it’s simply a great movie.
Rats generally shouldn’t be anywhere near a kitchen, much less plating a dish. But who could pass up a meal made by rodent chef extraordinaire Remy?
The movie that put DreamWorks Animation on the map and made Shrek the most famous green character since Kermit the Frog.
3. The Incredibles
Oscar-winning director Brad Bird would like to remind you that a family that uses their superpowers to fight crime together, stays together.
2. The Lion King
Think of this wildly popular Disney tale as an animated nature show, only with more singing and dancing and less hunting and devouring.
1. Finding Nemo
Yahoo! users choose this as the greatest animated film of all time, and it’s no wonder. By telling a universally human story in an entirely invented world, Pixar illustrates exactly what makes animation special.
sorry but nemo is all hype. mufasa and sarabi are so much better than that whiny bitch nemo.
