Fantasia – 1940
There has never been another animated film that can come close in comparison to Fantasia. It is the epitome of animation as an art form. It was never appreciated in it’s own time but has grown to become legendary.
Dumbo – 1941
Did you know that Dumbo was rushed through production to provide some revenue for the Disney Studio after the box office disappointment of Fantasia? It too has become of a favorite for children of all ages. Heck, this ride also has one of the longest lines in all of Fantasyland at Disneyland, everyday.
Robin Hood – 1973
The familiar tale of Robin Hood, retold with animals and catchy music. My husband reports he was obsessed with this movie as a child, which was back in the era when you could only catch the film in a theatrical re-release. Oo De Lally, Golly What A Day!
The Rescuers – 1977
Who knew too mice could end up into so many adventures? This fun film was an important transition time for Disney animation as the last of the original animators retired and the next generation came aboard.
This Pooh film is actually two shorter films that were put together and released as one film. They are wonderful movies that continue to introduce the younger generation to that silly old bear.
We hope to see many more of the Disney animated films make their way to Netflix. Which are some of your favorites?
