The stuff they are showing tonight might not make everybody's Top Ten lists, although I like JUNGLE CAT. Too bad it is shown so late in the program. I would rather see that one early than FOLLOW ME BOYS. Yet I guess there are more DVDs to sell at Wal-Mart of that one than the kitty pic. (Also, couldn't they show THE INCREDIBLE JOURNEY earlier?)

However, I hate THE LION KING and Robin Williams ruins ALADDIN, for me.

 

Wow I'm so glad to read that, john. I get a lot of heat when I say that. And I'm a Robin Williams fan, overall. (THE FISHER KING-wow)

 

But I think he ruins this movie, his "jokes" absolutely date the film.

 

I can't remember why I hated THE LION KING so much, I only saw it once in the theater. But I quite liked FROZEN, I liked the color schemes, the animation, the look of it. I also really liked the two principle charactors but had to tolerate the insipid "comedy relief" charactors like the snowman for the kiddies sake.

 

Gee, the "comic relief" in BAMBI was Thumper & Flower, and they were both adorable & charming to adult viewers. Why do modern films dumb down to today's kids?

Now persorally I agree. Modern Disney films have a lot of trouble with comic relief characters. I rather liked Aladdin still, but it was a huge problem in The Lion King and Mulan, and a slightly irritating one in most of the ones since Lion King (aside from Pocahontas, Zootopia, and Moana). The last time that Disney fully integrated the comic relief was in Beauty and the Beast, and that is now 26 years ago.

Just like the thread title excludes any Pixar created Disney movies, I generally prefer anything made while Walt Disney was still living over anything done since.

There's a been a few animated post-Disney films I've enjoyed, but the magic combination of good story, good storytelling, and artistry was a result of having Walt at the helm.

 

 

 

 

Lady & The Tramp didn't hold up well at all for me. I thought Fantasia 2000 was good, but hated the Lion King & Aladdin. 

I still love LADY AND THE TRAMP.  I only place BEAUTY AND THE BEAST above it, in my list of animated favorites.  However, I hate THE LION KING and Robin Williams ruins ALADDIN, for me.  Then again, he ruins everything, for me.  I also really am annoyed by FROZEN.  Above many of my top Disney animated films, I would place 20th Century Fox's animated ANASTASIA.

Since this is under the Cartoon category, I will assume it is meant to be your top 10 animated Disney film's, rather than live action films.  Regardless, my favorite Disney film is MARY POPPINS.  Of the animated ones:

 

BEAUTY AND THE BEAST

LADY AND THE TRAMP

PINOCCHIO

TANGLED

SLEEPING BEAUTY

SNOW WHITE AND THE SEVEN DWARFS

THE JUNGLE BOOK

PETER PAN

101 DALMATIANS

CINDERELLA

If I had to choose I'd list in no particular order:

 

Snow White

Dumbo 

Bambi

Fantasia

The Parent Trap

Mary Poppins

The Jungle Book

Cinderella

Sleeping Beauty

Pinocchio (a little maudlin, but great animation!)

Figure I'd restore this topic, so here are my top 10 Disney films:

 

1. Robin Hood (1973)

2. Zootopia (2016)

3. Fantasia (1940)

4. The Lion King (1994)

5. Beauty and the Beast (1991)

6. Aladdin (1992)

7. The Great Mouse Detective (1986)

8. Bambi (1942)

9. Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl (2003)

10. Mary Poppins (1964)

 

I would put Tim Burton's The Nightmare Before Christmas and Who Framed Roger Rabbit on here, but I can't, because those were originally released by Disney's subsidiary Touchstone Pictures.
