Inspired by Time Out's deeply flawed (but very fun) top-50 list, Kohl Glass wrote his "Top 10 Underrated Animated Film List".
Wanting to get in on the fun, I've combed the Thteed Family Film Collection and curated a list of my own.
First, only animated films that are clearly features were deemed eligible. We own hundreds of animated shorts, some of which are among my favorite films of all time, but that's too hard a task, combing through those babies. So a film had to be animated, a feature, and excellent to qualify. And owned by the Thteeds. Those are the criteria. Then came the narrowing down to a blogger's dozen.....
Which was really hard. Getting from 15 to 14 was the hardest part. I love some films that didn't make the final cut. If I'd made this list a day earlier, it would have been a different list. Same with tomorrow. So I didn't bother ranking them --- this is just alphabetical order.
(The links go to the films' Wikipedia pages. My comments are in the rollover text.)
An American Tale: Fievel Goes West
A Boy Named Charlie Brown
A Goofy Movie
The Iron Giant
The Many Adventures of Winnie the Pooh
My Neighbor Totoro
The Nightmare Before Christmas
Toy Story 2
Free bonus! The other animated features we own are listed below to help you kvetch that I chose the wrong fourteen. Again, when possible, I linked to the film's Wikipedia page. If there was none, then IMDb.
Alice in Wonderland
Batman: Mystery of the Batwoman
A Bug's Life
Cowboy Bebop: The Movie
The Curious Adventures of Mr. Wonderbird
Jungle Emperor Leo
Kiki's Delivery Service
Lady and the Tramp
