My Favorite Classically Animated Movies

A Listmania! list by James Cleaveland "webcomic artist" (Los Angeles, CA)
(REAL NAME)   
The list author says: "I am an animator, cartoonist, and writer; and I produce the webcomic strip, "The Inexplicable Adventures of Bob!" This is a list of my favorite classically animated films—classical meaning hand-drawn, 2D films, as opposed to CG (computer generated) films like Shrek or Toy Story.

(I should note that the title robot in Iron Giant is done in CG, but he is shaded in flat colors to match the human characters, who are hand-drawn.)

Please note that while most of the films I've listed below are "kid-friendly," there are some R-rated ones on the list. The medium of animation is not limited to children's bedtime stories."
