Top 50 Animated Films

Posted by martinteller on July 27, 2012

I’m not super-psyched about this list, to be honest.  There’s some stuff on here I love deeply, but clearly I need to watch a lot more animation.  Embarrassingly heavy on Ghibli, W&G, and only because I watched them fairly recently, Kawamoto and Starewicz.  I’m surprised I have Snow White ranked this high, but I couldn’t find anything I’d rather put there.  I left off Looney Tunes because I feel like I need to rewatch/re-rank a lot more than I have.  Maybe if I ever update this, I’ll prioritize some Looney revisits.

But anyway, here’s the hastily slapped-together list.  Links to watch online where available.

    Going through some of these links you’ve posted – some of these were completely unknown to me and really beautiful! Have you watched “Hedgehog in the Fog”? Also, have you got around to any Looney Tunes revisits?

    • I have not seen Hedgehog in the Fog, but as a Norshteyn it seems like one I should check out! No Looney Tunes… hard to motivate myself to rewatch stuff I’ve seen a million times, even though I’ve never officially rated/reviewed them.
