Movie maven Glenn Kenny has put together a list of the 25 top animated films for Moviefone. Lots of Disney classics, of course, like “Lady and the Tramp,” “Dumbo,” “Fantasia,” “Cinderella,” “Snow White,” “Little Mermaid,” and “Beauty and the Beast.” I was glad to see “Triplets of Belleville,” “Wallace and Gromit,” and “The Nightmare Before Christmas” on the list. I could quibble about the high positioning of “The Lion King” and “Ratatouille” and complain for the omission of “Yellow Submarine” and “A Bug’s Life.” But I can’t argue with #1 (hint: it’s about a cowboy and an astronaut), and I am so fond of every one of the films I won’t waste time complaining. I’ll just dig out some of my favorites from the list and watch them again.
Thanks so much to loyal reader jestrfyl for suggesting this list!
