34. Lady and the Tramp (1955) Disney’s most romantic film.
35. Three Caballeros (1944) Separates itself from the half-dozen other compilation films Disney was turning out in the forties by creating a strong link between its short films.
36. Lilo and Stitch (2002) A girl and her supervillain alien pet make for charming company surprisingly, and its message of family sticking together hits home. This one feels odd though in Disney’s canon as it seems more like an offbeat, quirky independent film rather than a big-budget studio offering.
37. Fantasia (1940) This may seem sacrilegious to some, but as I don’t care about classical music, there is a limit to how much enjoyment I can have with this film. Considered by many to be one of the greatest animated films of all time, I consider it nice to look at.
38. Robin Hood (1973) Pretty straightforward telling of the Robin Hood legend with the only fresh draw being that it’s done with animals.
39. Fantasia 2000 (2000) Similar to its predecessor, this artistic venture is beautiful to look at but bores my primitive ears.
40. Brother Bear (2003) Shows a different culture than we are used to seeing in a Disney film and does so respectably, but its message is understood before it is even revealed. It’s obvious.
41. The Rescuers (1977) A huge hit for the company in a time when they weren’t doing so well, the idea of two mice voiced by Bob Newhart and Eva Gabor is a fun one and makes for a nice enough time at the movies.
42. Bolt (2008) Reminiscent of Buzz Lightyear’s struggles in Toy Story, the canine superstar Bolt doesn’t know that his heroics are all for show. He is the star of a sci-fi series on the television. This was when Disney was starting to get its powers back, but Bolt is still just a good movie. Not a special one.
43. 101 Dalmations (1961) One of the most popular films of all-time, apparently I am too apathetic to animals to love this movie. Cruella De Vil is a memorable villain, but I was not overly interested in any of the exploits on display.
44. Home on the Range (2004) Audiences have largely ignored this picture, and it’s not great, but it is good and worth seeing for Disney fans. The voice work is all well done and the adventure is appealing enough.
