The Best Disney Animated Movies

I’ve just stumbled upon a complete ranking of all the Disney Classic/Disney Masterpiece animated features on Rotten Tomatoes, the film rating aggregator website. Supposedly they use some formula based on ratings from the site, box office performance, and I don’t know what else. Of course it goes without saying that a slew of people have left comments disagreeing with the ranking.

50 movies are included. Everything from the first full-length Disney feature, Snow White (1937), to the second-most recent, Tangled (2010). Not included are sequels (Aladdin: Return of Jafar), Pixar flicks (Toy Story), or any other Disney property that isn’t marketed through the Disney Masterpiece Collection label (or the Disney Classics Collection label until the mid-90s).

Anyway, no point in arguing about it. However, we happen to have been doing a fair bit of Disney viewing hereabouts of late. Thus, I will provide my own top-ten list, as follows:

  1. Beauty and the Beast
  2. Aladdin
  3. The Princess and the Frog
  4. The Lion King
  5. The Little Mermaid
  6. Lady and the Tramp
  7. Alice in Wonderland
  8. Bambi
  9. Dumbo
  10. Pinocchio

If you don’t like it, feel free to make your own list.
