my absolute favorite movie of all time when I was young was called something like "milo and otis" and I did in fact name my friend Catherine after milo, and when my family first got a dog, the first name I came up with was otis. of course, I am just kind of weird.

I've heard of it I don't exactly remember it though.

I just remembered Aristocats and The Great Mouse Detective. Those were great movies...

I absolutely loved The Little Mermaid, I still watch it now and then. I'll even admit to having seen both the sequels. I miss the more traditional animation like that style.

The Labyrinth and the Goonies were my two main favorites, and still are when it comes to movies aimed at the child demographic. We onwed just about every single Disney movie ever made, so I watched many of those. And I loved the Muppet movies.

Who Framed Roger Rabbit and The Princess Bride are two of my favorite movies to this day.

Also, the Wallace and Gromit shorts. How could I forget? This thread is convincing me that I seriously need to expand my DVD collection.

Feivel Goes West (Still pretty good)
Anything Muppets
The Lion King (Naturally)
A Boy Named Charlie Brown (the spelling bee one)
Ducktales: The Movie (Still pretty dang good, back when Disney cared)
Men in Black (I thought this was a dark, mature movie when I saw it at 12. What a great movie for a preteen unacquainted with action movies.)

Nah, s'cool. My parents raised us mainly on old movies - Don Knotts stuff, for example. Even darker stuff like Arsenic and Old Lace which probably had an incalculable effect on my dark sense of humor. We didn't even think of them as "old" movies.

Labyrinth (only the second one to mention this?) - Jennifer Connelly was my first celebrity crush when I was a little kid. I still love the movie and soundtrack.
Aladdin - still my favorite Disney movie
TMNT 1-2 - I disavow the existence of the third one
Addams Family - not sure why, though Raul Julia was one of my father's favorite actors
Super Mario Bros - it's atrocious, but when I was a little kid I didn't know any better
The Neverending Story (I'm the first one to mention this one?)
Legend

That's all that comes to mind for now. KF

Ha - it's funny how preachy and corny that movie is now (much like Captain Planet), but I saw it as a gritty sort of story as a kid. Somehow I forgot this oddness.

Don Bluth's stuff is incredibly surreal. Usually a little rough around the edges too, but it's funny how good this goofy little sequel was.

I forgot:

The Dark Crystal

Gosh, definitely. Have you seen All Dogs Go To Heaven? There are some seriously weird scenes in that film. Also, gambling dogs.

The Nightmare Before Christmas

I feel pretty bad for forgetting this one. Add James and the Giant Peach too. Henry Sellick, have my stop-mo babies.

As a child I loved Brisby and the rats of N.I.M.H because it was dark and deep, far more than any other children movie. Unfortunately, it was considered too dark and I had no right to see it again - maybe it is one of the many reasons why I don't have any contact with my family anymore...

I saw it recently and it was just as good as I remembered... Which is quite unusual, for anytime I watch a cartoon I loved in my childhood it turns on to be a huge disappointment.

Holy shit, Los Tres Caballeros! I watched that when I was a kid. It was cool, because I lived in Puerto Rico, and was therefore fluent in Spanish (which I have now forgotten), and it was a spanglish movie.

Also, I had La Espada en la Piedra.

Wow, a lot of movies ITT I had forgotten about entirely. As for The Brave Little Toaster, I haven't watched that in something like 10 years. I just put it in before starting this post, I'm now on the scene with Phil Hartman doing his Jack Nicholson/Air Conditioner bit. "IT'S MY FUNCTION!!!"

AC Freakout.jpg
AC Freakout.jpg (13.31 KiB) Viewed 5177 times
OH NOEZ!!! He self-destructed... :cry: Go watch that scene. Now!

That movie epitomized everything a kid's movie should be; funny, entertaining, loaded with references that kids will never pick up on, and they weren't afraid to be dark when they had to. Also, has anyone seen the sequels? The internet seems to think they weren't very good, but are they at least worth watching?

I can only think of a few others that aren't listed here:
*Robin Hood (The Disney version where Robin Hood is a fox.)
*Rock-a-Doodle (More or less based on Chaucer's The Nun's Priest's Tale, with a few other stories mixed in; nearly ruined by the incredibly annoying child actor)
*Actually, pretty much anything by Don Bluth.
*And Pixar's stuff.
