America Online’s Moviefone site (http://movies.aol.com) has posted a list of what it considers to be the Top 25 Animated Movies of all time, placing Disney/Pixar’s Toy Story at No. 1 spot. The groundbreaking 1995 CG-animated release edged out the 1994 2D favorite The Lion King for the top spot, while the 1999 sequel Toy Story 2 made the list at No. 17.
Other expected entries include the Disney classics Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs, Fantasia, Pinocchio, Cinderella, Bambi and The Jungle Book. The list also includes decidedly underappreciated films such as the Oscar-nominated French pic The Triplets of Belleville, DreamWorks/Aardman’s Wallace and Gromit: The Curse of the Were-Rabbit, Warner Bros.’ The Iron Giant and Paramount’s South Park: Bigger, Longer and Uncut.
Joining the host of time-honored classics are several animated films released in the past several years, including Hayao Miyazaki’s Spirited Away, DreamWorks Animation’s Shrek and the Disney/Pixar hits Finding Nemo, The Incredibles and Ratatouille.
