    Computer animated, hard drawn etc.
    I know everyone raves about UP, I'm going to go with Ratatouille.

    The Fantastic Planet, aka Savage Planet.

    Also, Wizards will always have a warm place in my heart. I love the older animation.

    What is Savage Planet about? I've never heard of it.

    I love the recent Pixar stuff too, but there's something about the old, scratchy, hand-drawn Disney films that is so endearing. So my vote goes to The Jungle Book.

    Technically speaking, making those older films without the aid of computers is something bordering on genius IMHO. The ability of the artists to create fluid, realistic movement using such archaic techniques was very impressive.

    I agree. Equally impressive is to realize Akira was done by hand while you are watching it. Simply amazing, still to this day IMO.

    Probably not the best, but my favorite.

    Is it bad that I haven't seen Yellow Submarine? LOL.

    As far as Disney, I want to scream out WTF IS WRONG WITH YOU ALL?!....

    But...I do recall really enjoying Beauty and the Beast when it came out.

    I also left out Nightmare Before Christmas...a classic of course.

    Honorable Mention goes to Heavy Metal.

    The original cut of the thief and the cobbler, before majestic and miramax butchered it. richard williams spent 26 years drawing each frame by hand. the original animation was beautiful.

    Ratatouille is correct. not a perfect movie, pretty loose in the middle, but the only pixar movie that is cathartic.

    I'd put Bambi second, and the two Toy Story films after it.

    I actually saw Fantastic Planet (i think it was called Savage Planet) at the theater, and while it's animation and world are cool, it offers little else. it's about Monsters Inc. level despite their totally different styles.

    Spirited Away (never mind best animated, it's one of the best films I've ever seen)
    The Hedgehog in the Fog
    Princess Mononoke
    La Planète Sauvage (good call, javyn)
    Princes et Princesses (Michel Ocelot)
    Les Aventures du Prince Ahmed (Lotte RÃ[​IMG]iniger)

    Ratatouille is fabulous. I love the Jungle Book too. Some of the old Disney films have marvellous scenes: The sequence in Sleeping Beauty when the fairy godmothers put everyone in the castle to sleep is just beautiful.
