Todays “Friday’s top 5” is such an amazing topic, I couldn’t do just 5 and did 10. Honestly I could make this list much bigger but then it just gets out of control and not as fun. I do want to point out, this list is just Disney, not Disney Pixar movies.
Honorable Mention: Pocahontas, Snow White, Sword in the Stone, Cinderella, Pinocchio, Oliver & Company… Honestly SO MANY more belong here.
- Emperors New Groove
Emperors New Groove narrowly made the cut for one reason, Kronk. Kronk is one of the best characters ever created.
8 Rescuers Down Under
This was a hard choice just because I loved both Rescuers movies, but Down under was a little better.
Great great movie, the Story of Hercules is one of the better ones out there. Plus Danny Devito
6 Jungle Book
Look for the bare necessities
5 Lady and the Tramp
Lady and the Tramp is high on everyone’s list, Tramp is stud and straight murders that rat to save his lady.
4 Fox and the Hound
Possibly the best story of friendship on this list. Todd and Copper go together like “Lamb and Tuna fish”. Gotta respect the shit out of Copper for staying true to his buddy, even with a loaded gun in his face. This was honestly my second favorite disney movie growing up.
3 Beauty and the Beast
Beauty and the Beast is one of the all time greats in movie history, let alone just Disney. I will say though, there are a few things I always had issues with… Stockholm syndrome, bestiality and some witch punishing everyone because of a child’s actions. Also did anyone turn into a toilet? If so, talk about getting the shit end of the stick.
Arguably the greats “overcoming the odds” story of all time. Aladdin legitimately goes from rags to riches and takes down the princess.
1 Lion King
Lion King is the best animated Disney movie of all time, you could open it to any Disney movie and it wouldn’t matter. I need to limit it to that because technically all the Marvel and future Star Wars movies are Disney movies as well. Lion King had the best sound track, coolest story and was easily the most enjoyable movie overall.
