Meme: Every Frakking Animated Movie Ever Made (Almost)

I stole this from Andrew Wheeler, who stole it from someone else.  Should be fun!

All the animated movies in the world, sort of:

- X what you saw
- O what you haven't finished/seen or saw sizable portions
- Bold what you loved
- Italicize what you disliked/hated
- Leave unchanged if neutral

(I've added a final thing to these:  a grade--good, average, and sucked.  I might as well, right?)

CLASSIC DISNEY

-------------------------------
[X] 101 Dalmatians (1961) -- Good
[X] Alice in Wonderland (1951) -- Good
[X] Bambi (1942) -- Good
[X] Cinderella (1950) -- Average
[X] Dumbo (1941) -- Good
[X] Fantasia (1940) -- Good (and trippy.  Every time I see this movie, I feel like someone has inserted an extra ten minutes.  No joke.  My experience watching this as a kid involved frequently feeling as though I missed something the last time I watched it.)
[X] Lady and the Tramp (1955) -- Average
[X] Mary Poppins (1964) -- Good
[X] Peter Pan (1953) -- Good
[X] Pinocchio (1940) -- Good
[X] Sleeping Beauty (1959) -- Good (I liked it, but I've only seen it once.)
[X] Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs (1937) -- Good
[X] Song of the South (1946) -- I barely remember it, so I can't grade it.

(Note:  My grandma pretty much made me grow up with most of the Disney movies.  I'm not complaining, but I've pretty much seen every classic and semi-classic Disney movie ever made, even if I can't remember seeing it.  That is, except for new Disney, which I've mostly been avoiding.)

DISNEY'S DARK AGE

[X] The Aristocats (1970) -- Average

[X] Pete's Dragon (1977) -- Good
[X] The Rescuers (1977) -- Good

  1. I was a little worried when the first chunk of stuff was all disney. . . but then the list gets to the good stuff.

    and holy crap, that really is (almost) every frakkin' animated flick! or at least ones that are generally available in the US.

    btw, i've seen 102 of the movies on that list.

  2. How have you not seen Toy Story 3 and how did you think Up was just average?

    I am extremely disappointed in you.

  3. redhead: Disney has made a lot of great films in its day, but it's definitely fallen from grace in the last 20 years. There are some gems, but then there are a lot of crappy flicks too.

    mrfusspot: I didn't have time.

    And Up just isn't the best Pixar film. It was on par with what counts for a good Disney movie these days. They've made better films.
