1. Bambi - This is probably my very favorite animated movie of all time. This movie was literally my childhood. It introduced me to death and made my love for animals grow even stronger. I love this movie!
2. Beauty And The Beast - A timeless story that will always hold a special place in my heart. The story line is touching and inspiring, the music is fantastic, and it is simply wonderful movie!
3. Finding Nemo - The animation for this movie is absolutely beautiful! This is a great movie that I love to watch. It's so funny and filled with good life lessons for all.
4. Mulan - I love this movie! It's a story about honor, bravery, and hope. It has drama, romance, and comedy. What more could you ask for?!?!
5. The Prince Of Egypt - This was a favorite of mine as a child. I still love it to this day.

Your list is my new favorite. Prince of Egypt is actually an incredible film.
And since Top mentioned it, I'm adding Watership Down to my list. I guess I'll take out Fantasia, since it's.. not actually a favorite of mine, just more like one I recognize as being a great achievement.

Wait. They made a movie of Watership Down? I must investigate.
Fanatically listening to fantastic film scores near you.
My online "family", as advertised in Hillindale: Shakespeare: My Online Conscience. thefinalhoru: My online trusty steed. Montykins: Back-Up Conscience. Jeremy: Epic neighbor across the street. Sunny: My pet dog named, Lulu. Lee: Sister God's Daughter: Awesome sister
5. Aladdin, for having top of the line animation, awesome music, and the Genie.
4. Recess: School's Out, for being a movie about one of the best cartoon series of all time. It's such a fun movie and it makes me take a trip back to the good old days.
3. Meet the Robinsons, for being a timeless tale about a kid who just wants a family. And for having an obvious parody of badly dubbed anime fight sequences.
2. The Princess and the Frog, for being one of the only Disney Princess movies where the princess works hard to get what she wants instead of having her wishes come true all the time (not that the others are necessarily bad for this, but Tiana makes it mroe believable).
1. The Lion King, for being the movie I love so much. The music is so much fun and beautiful to listen to--the scene with Simba walking up Pride Rock clinched it. I really like how Simba grows up and learns to take responsibility for himself instead of letting everything come to him. Honestly, Disney needs more movies like this.

I just slapped myself for forgetting Burton's Nightmare Before Christmas. Also, I have a special appreciation for The Secret of Nimh, which was probably one of the first animation features I ever saw when I was young.. I remember being strangely haunted by it. Watched it again recently and realized how truly great it is.
How is that animated films used to be so much more adventurous? The Secret of Nimh is an example of a film that wasn't afraid to travel to dark places, feature blood, or kill off its feature characters.. and yet its also funny, magical, and wonderful to behold for adults and children alike. Our animation these days is garbage.
1. Aladdin - best animated movie ever, no debate Aladdin was where it's at.
2. Batman: Under The Red Hood - beautiful art and perhaps one of the best batman stories to ever be turned into any type of movies make this a shoe-in for my #2
3. Akira - hm, anime, anime as an art form has really been lost to alot of dumb series that pop up these days (with the exception of things like full metal alchemist brotherhood) but this anime movie is far reaching and will probably last as what other anime strive to be for as long as the genre is around, it's pretty violent and dark to be an animated film but the story and the bleak outlook on the future is so perfectly put together, there's no way this doesn't deserve top 5.
4. Toy Story - No, not toy story 2 with the weird evil country prospector, or toy story 3 with the weird evil country bear, Toy Story 1 with the evil kid who mutilated toys....the conflicts between woody and buzz, the ultimate rescue plan! It was all epic and while I can't say toy story gave us diminishing returns on quality, I will say I've always liked this one the best.
5. Batman: Mask of the Phantasm - yeah, I know I already have a batman film on here...but there's something about the batman animated movies that kind of set a precedent for serious and dark animated films as an art form, and boy was this movie a piece of art, if you haven't seen this movie, you aren't a true batman fan.
I saw The Iron Giant while browsing movies on the Add to Que thing on Netflix. I watched it straight from my TV and loved it! Ratatouille is my favorite animated film, but The Iron Giant and The Incredibles would be in my Top 5. I guess you could say I'm a Brad Bird fan.
