Pom Poko is WEIRD but pretty awesome.

The one that creeped me out was Watership Down. I loved the book, and then seeing all those bloody rabbits...I still haven't recovered.

Doesn't mean that it's not a good movie though.

Whats so weird about Japanese raccoon-dogs fighting injustice by using their magic, giant, inflatable, chameleon like nutsacks to disguise themselves as humans, and to fight an army of riot police in an epic battle for all the cookies?

Miyazaki for sure. It's between Chihiro and Mononoke for me. Miyazaki + Jo Hisashi = Win

Pretty much defined several years of my childhood.
Sad, huh?

It kind of does.

After The Jungle Book Disney fell into a deep creative funk for almost two decades with the death of Roy Disney:

The Aristocats, 1970.
Robin Hood, 1973.
The Many Adventures Of Winnie The Pooh, 1977.
The Rescuers, 1977.
The Fox And The Hound, 1981.
The Black Cauldron, 1985.
The Great Mouse Detective, 1986.
Oliver & Company, 1988.

It wasn't until 1989 that they began to get out of it with the Eisner films now being made:

The Little Mermaid, 1989.
The Rescuers Down Under, 1990.
Beauty And The Beast, 1991.
Aladdin, 1992.
The Lion King, 1994.
Pocahontas, 1995.

I would rate most of the first list higher than most from the second list. I believe what you are talking about is the homogenization of Disney movies into formulaic crappy musicals featuring saccharine, horrible plots and grandiose Elton John pop songs. Most of the egregious offenders are on the second list. Maybe you prefer that. I don't. I'd rather watch The Black Cauldron, The Rescuers, The Great Mouse Detective, The Sword in the Stone, The Aristocats, or Robin Hood than anything on that second list.

Aside from classic Disney, all of my favorite animated material was made for TV.. The Charley Brown series, the claymation Christmas specials (Rudolph, Grinch, Frosty etc). I'd even prefer watching 90 minutes of cartoons (Bugs, Flintstones, Jetsons etc) over any modern animated film.

This. I don't get the love for the post-'89 Disneys, unless they happened to coincide with your childhood. In fact, I'd wonder how many people's lists here correlate with movies that either came out when they were 6-14 or that they watched on DVD/videos at that age.

I will never ever even think about watching The Lion King or Aladdin objectively. I have too many happy memories attached to them. Like Star Wars.

That said I can't believe nobody has mentioned Titan AE. The combination of hand-drawn and computer-generated animation in that movie is fantastic.

Does Waltz with Bashir counts?
Apart from that one, Les Triplettes de Belleville and Persepolis
