Disney Animated Classics

A Listmania! list by Reconnecting To My Childhood "Time Won't Let Me Go"
The list author says: "This is just a list of the Disney Animated Classics. I have left out some, noticeably the pacakge films released as promotional films for the US down in South America during World War II, . I acknowledge they are part of history but not quite the classics these other films are. So here we go"
Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs (Three-Disc Diamond Edition Blu-ray/DVD Combo + BD Live w/ Blu-ray packaging)
1.  Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs (Three-Disc Diamond Edition Blu-ray/DVD Combo + BD Live w/ Blu-ray packaging) DVD ~ Adriana Caselotti
The list author says:
  "Yes, the one that started it all. AFI calls this THE greatest animated film of all time"
$90.97   Used & New from: $42.95
4.4 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (1,366 customer reviews) | 44 customer discussions

Pinocchio (Two-Disc 70th Anniversary Platinum Edition Blu-ray/DVD Combo + BD Live) [Blu-ray]
2.  Pinocchio (Two-Disc 70th Anniversary Platinum Edition Blu-ray/DVD Combo + BD Live) [Blu-ray] DVD ~ Mel Blanc
The list author says:
  "While Bambi was supposed to be Walt's second film, it wound up being released later and Pinocchio (a film with quite a few troubles itself) wound up filling the number 2 spot. Overlooked on initial release animators will tell you this is one of Walt's finest works"
$81.95   Used & New from: $26.73

Fantasia / Fantasia 2000 (Four-Disc Blu-ray/DVD Combo)
3.  Fantasia / Fantasia 2000 (Four-Disc Blu-ray/DVD Combo) DVD ~ Leopold Stokowski
The list author says:
  "This is a great and economic release, both films in once nice package. The films look beautiful on Blu and sound amazing."
$54.97   Used & New from: $22.85

Dumbo (70th Anniversary Spanish-Language Version Blu-ray/DVD Combo)
4.  Dumbo (70th Anniversary Spanish-Language Version Blu-ray/DVD Combo) DVD ~ Sterling Holloway
The list author says:
  "This extra packed Blu-ray better arrive in the USA soon, it vanished from the schedule but I'm putting the South American release on here as a place holder until it reappears."
Used & New from: $19.79

Bambi (Two-Disc Diamond Edition Blu-ray/DVD Combo in Blu-ray Packaging)
5.  Bambi (Two-Disc Diamond Edition Blu-ray/DVD Combo in Blu-ray Packaging) DVD ~ Hardie Albright
The list author says:
  "This is the last of the classic 5, after this World War II and an animators strike would upset the studio and through things off track. The films later return to greatness but there is something special about these 5, an innocence from a time where Walt just wanted to push the envelope"
$36.75   Used & New from: $15.44
4.5 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (683 customer reviews) | 11 customer discussions

Cinderella (Two-Disc Special Edition)
6.  Cinderella (Two-Disc Special Edition) DVD ~ Ilene Woods
The list author says:
  "The studio and Walt return to true greatness with another true fairy tale. I can't wait until this film makes it to Diamond Edition Blu-ray but for now my Platinum DVD will do"
Used & New from: $4.75
4.6 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (1,471 customer reviews) | 6 customer discussions

Alice In Wonderland (Two-Disc 60th Anniversary Blu-ray/DVD Combo)
7.  Alice In Wonderland (Two-Disc 60th Anniversary Blu-ray/DVD Combo) DVD ~ Kathryn Beaumont
The list author says:
  "I foolishly bought the Un-Aniversary Edition DVD only for this Blu-ray to come out months later. I hesitantly bought it and am glad, there are new special features and the "Through the keyhole" feature is really like a commentary/documentary that plays over the entire film and the entire time discusses the inspirations for scenes and links to the book. Oh and it look great!"
$13.96   Used & New from: $11.49
4.4 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (765 customer reviews) | 7 customer discussions

Peter Pan (Two-Disc Platinum Edition)
8.  Peter Pan (Two-Disc Platinum Edition) DVD ~ Bobby Driscoll
The list author says:
  "Peter Pan and Alice in Wonderland are two book titles that can be seen on the shelf at the beginning of Pinocchio. Walt had been planning since long before even that film to turn them into the masterpieces they eventually became"
$47.97   Used & New from: $12.86
4.5 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (942 customer reviews) | 2 customer discussions

Lady and the Tramp (Two-Disc 50th Anniversary Platinum Edition)
9.  Lady and the Tramp (Two-Disc 50th Anniversary Platinum Edition) DVD ~ Barbara Luddy
The list author says:
  "This will soon turn to Blu-ray when it is released as a Diamond Edition next year after Lion King. Until then I'll hold onto my Platinum DVD. This one well look amazing in high-def because just like Sleeping Beauty is was actually created in a wide screen ratio"
Used & New from: $4.84

Sleeping Beauty (Two-Disc Platinum Edition Blu-ray/DVD Combo + BD Live) [Blu-ray]
10.  Sleeping Beauty (Two-Disc Platinum Edition Blu-ray/DVD Combo + BD Live) [Blu-ray] DVD ~ Mary Costa
The list author says:
  "After beginning the decade with another fairy tale Walt ended it with another fairy tale, Sleeping Beauty is arguably the most action filled of all his fairy tale adaptions possibly out of all Walt's films period. Glad to have this Blu-ray for now but I'll probably still upgrade when the Diamond Edition comes out in a few years"
$69.98   Used & New from: $8.99

101 Dalmatians (Two-Disc Platinum Edition)
11.  101 Dalmatians (Two-Disc Platinum Edition) DVD ~ Marjorie Bennett
The list author says:
  "A new decade finds a new style to the films. This classic still had Walt's touch despite his hands now being in many other things, but the films would soon begin to change"
$39.99   Used & New from: $27.30
4.5 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (639 customer reviews) | 9 customer discussions

The Sword in the Stone (45th Anniversary Special Edition)
12.  The Sword in the Stone (45th Anniversary Special Edition) DVD ~ Ricky Sorenson
The list author says:
  "This film is different than many of Disney's others. It is one of the few to focus on a male human character without a large female role, it is also one of my least favorite from Walt's era. Still a classic but there is a reason it didnt make the Platinum or Diamond lines"
$22.47   Used & New from: $1.59
4.3 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (523 customer reviews) | 2 customer discussions

The Jungle Book (Two-Disc 40th Anniversary Platinum Edition)
13.  The Jungle Book (Two-Disc 40th Anniversary Platinum Edition) DVD ~ Phil Harris
The list author says:
  "The last film considered to be touched by Walt's magic touch, can't wait for it to be released on Diamond Blu-ray. This film, like Sword in the Stone this is a rare film focusing on a human male protagonist, this one I argue does it more effectively and is one of Disney's best despite a lower budget"
Used & New from: $4.82

The Many Adventures of Winnie the Pooh (The Friendship Edition)
14.  The Many Adventures of Winnie the Pooh (The Friendship Edition) DVD ~ Sebastian Cabot
The list author says:
  "Winnie the Pooh - This film achieves classic status for me where other films from the same period were excluded because of how it has become the interpretation of Winne the Pooh"
$43.85   Used & New from: $1.22
4.6 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (509 customer reviews) | 4 customer discussions

The Fox and the Hound (25th Anniversary Edition)
15.  The Fox and the Hound (25th Anniversary Edition) DVD ~ Mickey Rooney
The list author says:
  "Soon coming to Blu. Again to clarify though this film makes the list while The Rescuers and others don't because this film retains the essence of what made earler Disney films great."
Used & New from: $12.71

The Little Mermaid (Two-Disc Platinum Edition)
16.  The Little Mermaid (Two-Disc Platinum Edition) DVD ~ Rene Auberjonois
The list author says:
  "Can't wait for this film to make it to Blu. This film is great. Watching it along with films from the early Disney era it seems as if Walt himself could have made it."
Used & New from: $19.94

Beauty and the Beast (Three-Disc Diamond Edition Blu-ray/DVD Combo in Blu-ray Packaging)
17.  Beauty and the Beast (Three-Disc Diamond Edition Blu-ray/DVD Combo in Blu-ray Packaging) DVD ~ Paige O'Hara
The list author says:
  "Beautifully presented in High Def. The only film that I would offer as a possible contendor to Snow White as AFI's greatest animated film of all time. Animation great, story great, songs great"
$75.00   Used & New from: $40.98
4.5 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (1,655 customer reviews) | 17 customer discussions

Aladdin (Two-Disc Special Edition)
18.  Aladdin (Two-Disc Special Edition) DVD ~ Scott Weinger
The list author says:
  "It is another film from the 90's that lives up to classic status(the genie can be a little distracting and may overshadow how well the rest of film is executed)"
Used & New from: $29.99
4.3 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (1,267 customer reviews) | 6 customer discussions

The Lion King (Two-Disc Platinum Edition)
19.  The Lion King (Two-Disc Platinum Edition) DVD ~ Matthew Broderick
The list author says:
  "This is possibly one of the most beautifully animted films off all time. This is Disney at their peak of classic animation, even to this day I would argue. Some story issues compared to previous 3 tho"

Pocahontas (Two-Disc 10th Anniversary Edition)
20.  Pocahontas (Two-Disc 10th Anniversary Edition) DVD ~ Mel Gibson
The list author says:
  "Love this film. Many felt it formulatic and problematic. I see Disney testing themselves just as they had been doing since Mermaid. Trying to capture mature theme and present it to children, based on essence of historical events, animal sidekicks that don't talk"

The Hunchback of Notre Dame
21.  The Hunchback of Notre Dame DVD ~ Demi Moore
The list author says:
  "Another divisive film. I see this film as classic, Disney once again pushes the envelope. Here we have an adult story with adult themes set in real setting, real time period still suitable for kids. All that and a main character who is very imperfect"
$9.96   Used & New from: $5.95
4.4 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (351 customer reviews) | 3 customer discussions

Hercules (Gold Collection)
22.  Hercules (Gold Collection) DVD ~ Barbara Barrie
The list author says:
  "This one is debatable. It has beautiful animation but this film is probably the worst of the 90's. Music is unique and the first 90's film to attempt a unique design. I enjoy it but there is something missing where capturing the magic is concerned"
Used & New from: $14.77

Mulan (Two-Disc Special Edition)
23.  Mulan (Two-Disc Special Edition) DVD ~ Ming-Na Wen
The list author says:
  "Others dislike this film, I enjoy it. Could be argued that this one misses the mark as much as Hercules, I feel the story and the message to young girls makes this film much stronger"
Used & New from: $12.63

Tarzan (Special Edition)
24.  Tarzan (Special Edition) DVD ~ Tony Goldwyn
The list author says:
  "The last classic film from the renaissance. This film is actually quite good in its execution. If anything the villain is what wasn't played strong enough in this film, the cheetah almost seems more impressive"
$12.96   Used & New from: $8.45
4.4 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (684 customer reviews) | 4 customer discussions

The Princess and the Frog (Single Disc Blu-ray)
25.  The Princess and the Frog (Single Disc Blu-ray) DVD ~ Bruno Campos
The list author says:
  "A welcome return to classic animation. Odd that I hadn't realized classic animation had died off in the new millenium until this. Starts to get convoluted storywise towards the end - but it has the magic and animation of a classic"
$24.99   Used & New from: $2.48
4.4 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (867 customer reviews) | 5 customer discussions

Tangled (Four-Disc Combo: Blu-ray 3D / Blu-ray / DVD / Digital Copy)
26.  Tangled (Four-Disc Combo: Blu-ray 3D / Blu-ray / DVD / Digital Copy) DVD ~ Mandy Moore
The list author says:
  "Yes I'm including it. Possibly unfairly since the songs were largely forgetable, story had some issues similar to  Frog where it might have done better with a simpler plotline. Somewhat weak villain and side characters that accomplish very little. However, I enjoyed seeing computer animation in the form of a fairy tale, the computer animation might have been the most beautiful I've seen yet"
$32.77   Used & New from: $19.97
