My Top 20 Non-Disney Animated Movies: Part 2



Recently, ever since seeing Frozen, I've been listening to a bunch of Disney songs via mixes on Youtube. And I found this amazing 79 song one, that included some of my favourite non-Disney animation movies. It got me thinking about which ones were my favourites, the ones I absolutely loved and the ones I feel aren't appreciated enough. I'm a huge Disney fan, I own almost every classic, but I have so many non-Disney animation movies that I absolutely love. I'm twenty-two, but I still love watching all my favourite kids films! 

I wanted to give them a shout out on my lovely blog! Plus, who doesn't love kids movies? I realised I have quite a lot, so I will do this in two parts and put part two up next week. I'd love to hear about your favourites, and if you love any of the ones I've picked.

Part Two

For Part One please go here. This post was a lot harder because thinking of twenty non-Disney animated movies that I loved as a kid, it's actually pretty hard! But seeing as I was a child addicted to animated movies, I had a whole bunch to pick from! I'm also just going to put these in alphabetical order, because it's easier. 





This is one of those films that was released before I was even born, so I definitely grew up watching it. But I can still remember absolutely loving the sequel as well. I have to admit that I haven't rewatched these since I was a child, who knows if I would still love them now.






An American Tail & An American Tail: Fievel Goes West were both out before or just as I was born and I grew up with these. My nan had them on VHS, so any time I stayed at hers I would watch them. I adored Fievel, he was so cute. 










Now, I know everyone points out that Antz was just a worse version of A Bugs Life, but I loved Antz. I loved A Bugs Life Too, but I definitely think that Antz was a good film. I enjoyed it at least, maybe I'm like the only one! 










Balto, which came out in 1995(I feel old), is a film that I absolutely loved. I don't think I've watched this again as an adult and I really have to track it down on DVD and see if I still adore it. Plus, it's got the added bonus of being based on a true story about a real sled dog!










This is one of those films that I remember watching over and over again with my best friend Kevin as a kid. I was absolutely obsessed with this film at one point. It was a really fun movie but also scared me a little. They accidentally drink a potion and end up as fishes in the sea, with all these scary sea creatures.









Come on, who doesn't LOVE Ice Age? I almost didn't include this because I thought it came out a lot later than it really did, it came out in 2002 and is officially a childhood movie. I adored/adore this movie, it's absolutely hilarious and so well done. I can still watch this now and laugh, even though I know every line.









I think Iron Giant might be one of the most under-appreciated movies, ever! I absolutely loved it as a kid, I love it now and I definitely think it should have got more love when it was out. The characters are brilliant, the story made me emotional and I just love it. 











Another movie my nan had on video and watched all the time when I was at her house. I thought it was so cool that not only was it someone from the real world getting trapped in an animated one, but he went in with three book friends. Plus, the library in this movie is immense and I wanted to go there so bad! 









Another one that I didn't think I could put on because it was too recent, but this came out in 2001 and totally counts. This movie was hilarious and still makes me laugh now. The characters are all brilliant, from Donkey all the way to the Gingerbread Man. Plus, it made fun of all the Disney films I love and I kind of loved that about it.








This is definitely one of those kids movies that I am not too sure if I would love now. But, when we were little, my best friend wanted to be a palaeontologist and was obsessed with dinosaurs. So we probably watched We're Back! A Dinosaurs Story about a million times.




Plus, this happens! 


The End

I hope you enjoyed my lists and that they brought back some of your own childhood memories. If you want to do your own post feel free to do one and link up, I'd love to see them & discover some new movies. If not, just tell me about your favourites in the comments below.

  1. This brings back lots of memories of my children (watching all of these movies and I remember I didn't really want to watch Shrek because I didn't think it would be that good and a couple of years later when I finally watched it, I loved it soooo much. :)

  7. That's a tough one 'cause I'm such a Disneylover! I'll have to say Shrek and Ice Age.. maybe Madagascar?

    1. I love Madagascar, but as it came out when I was a teen, I wasn't sure it classed as a childhood favourite. I LOVE Disney, just wanted to show some love for the non-Disney films that I loved as a kid - some of which do not get enough love :)

  9. I think I'm definetly going to do a version of this on my blog and link it.
    I'm going to watch The Iron Giant right now, you're right it is under appreciated and I didn't remember how much I loved it until I saw that excerpt.
    I know all the words to Shrek and Ice Age is the bomb!
    Great list!

  10. Antz is the best!!! I still laugh thinking about it!! That much sass in a Disney movie, eh?! Buuut, I don't believe Ice Age is Disney. It's 20th Century Fox. (I believe, anyway.)

  13. Your post on animated animal movies was great; I liked “ICE AGE 1 WHERE’S THE BABY” most. You are right; This is his best childhood movie. It made me laugh a lot. Thanks for sharing dear.
