25 animated movies worth watchingby simplysounak | created - 27 Jul 2011 | updated - 03 Jan 2013 | Public
These are surely not the greatest animated movies ever made. That credit belongs to movies like Snow white and the Seven Dwarfs, Pinocchio, Fantasia, Dumbo, Bambi, Spirited Away, My Neighbour Totoro, Toy Story, The Incredibles, Who framed Roger Rabbit, Akira etc...
Yes, this list does include some of these greatests. But above all these are my favourites. So feel free to comment on the list.
P.S: I have excluded animated shorts (except some collection volumes). There are so many great animated shorts that there if they are considered there will hardly be any features in the list.
