    Sittin' here having to listen to Finding Nemo came the thought.

    Just for sheer fun even an adult could have, not to mention some creative thinking: my pick is Bug's Life. And I wonder why they haven't made a sequel.
  2. Ratatouille. I enjoyed it more than my kid.

    Aladdin, if you're kicking it old school.

    Honorable mention goes to the Incredibles. The science involved in that movie is amazing.

    We'll see Wall-e as soon as it hits theaters, like we do all Pixar films. There's isn't a more consistently great studio.

    Meanwhile, we'll wait for the Jack Black panda shit to come out on DVD.

    My buddy took his kids to see Kung Fu Panda on Friday and said it tops his list of animated movies.

    "Transformers: The Movie" (the 1986 version), was great. I remember one of my friends saw it in the theaters before I could watch it, and his description of the scenes where the first Autobots died lingered with me for a long time. So did the sights of dead Autobots laying all over the place during the first big battle. For a movie based on a toy franchise and an OK cartoon series, it was quite grown-up.

    And I'll add another vote for "Iron Giant". Thought it looked intriguing when it came out, but it was in and out of theaters so fast that I forgot about it. Then Cartoon Network ran it on a 24-hour loop one Christmas or Thanksgiving, and I must have watched it two or three times. It got a little dusty in the house at the end, each and every time.

    While I haven't seen it in years and have no idea how it might hold up now, I would be hard-pressed to find a movie I was more excited about than when I was 8 and Transformers: The Movie came out.

    Saw Toy Story in college and was surprised at how much I enjoyed it, so that would be up there as well.

    I think Fantasia is still the gold standard. Even with all the advances in technology, Fantasia is still the most magical looking animated film.

    As far as non-for-kids animation, I have to go with American Pop, which was overshadowed by the inferior Heavy Metal. Does a great job of setting a mood and showing the reach of music across generations. Needless to say, great soundtrack too.

    My favorites include South Park, Toy Story and Lion King.

    There are two scenes in the Lion King that I'd rewind every time: the song to distract the hyneas (AAAAARE YAH ACHIN? (yup, yup, yup) FOOOOR SOME BACON (yup, yup, yup)), and the scene where the old monkey goes all Van Damme on the hyneas.
  12. 1. The Lion King
    2. The Incredibles
    3. Toy Story
    4. The Nightmare Before Christmas
    5. Shrek (am I the first to mention Shrek?)

    My favorite real/animated combo movie: Who Framed Roger Rabbit. Love it.
