Admittedly I think one of my guilty pleasures is watching a good family style animated film.
24 years old I find my self watching toy story more then once. There is something about these films that remind me of a good time with no responsibilities or expectations.

Anyone got some good suggestions?

Some that wen't under the radar and I would recommend watching:


1. Raining with a chance of meatballs
2. The Bee Movie (Jerry Seinfeld)
3. Ratatouille
4. Meet the robinsons
5. Bolt
6. Surf's up

If you have a kid like me you should like these.

For me it's mostly Disney:

1) The Little Mermaid
2) Beauty and the Beast
3) Pinocchio
4) The Jungle Book
5) Basil the Great Mouse Detective
6) The Iron Giant

The Iron Giant - not only one of the best animated family movies, but one of the finest movies ever IMO!
How To Train Your Dragon - great story telling from Dreamworks, with stunning animation, thrilling set pieces and loads of fun.
Ponyo/My Neighbour Totoro/Princess Mononoke - Ghibli: 'Nuff said!
Kung Fu Panda/KFP2 - some of the finest martial arts sequences for years, combined with good humour and superb animation (Master Oogway's departure in a cloud of cherry blossom is stunningly beautiful).
Monsters Inc. - great chemistry between Goodman and Crystal.  And is this one of the most moving final scenes ever?  I think so! Kitty!
Toy Story trilogy - not one weak link in the trilogy and moving enough to reduce a grown man to a blubbing wreck

1. Spirited Away
2. How To Train Your Dragon
3. Toy Story (trilogy)
4. Lion King
5. My Neighbour Totoro
6. Aladdin
7. Wall-E
8. Iron Giant
9. Finding Nemo
10. Up

Also, everything else Ghibli have done (that I've seen anyway, which is most of them), Kung Fu Panda 1 + 2, Shrek 2, Beauty & The Beast, Little Mermaid, Hercules, Monsters Inc (pretty much everything Pixar have done apart from Cars 2 and The Incredibles) etc.

Basically there's fucking loads of brilliant animation to be found.

Generally speaking i dont like animation, so for me it's going to be Adventures of Tintin: The Secret of the Unicorn. Perfect family entertainment and glorious animation

Guys, Princess Mononoke is not a family film. It is full of violence.

Not in the same way though. Princess Mononoke is rated M and shows people being decapitated with blood spurting out, etc. and has a heap of sexual references.

I feel so lucky that I had to study Spirited Away for my GCSE Media course. Love that movie, just awesome.

Toy Story 1 and 2 are amazing, 3 is good for a trip down memory lane but not much else. The fourth has a lot of work to do to not ruin it for me.

Love Ice Age as well, along with Shrek.

If I had to pick my favourite animated family movie though? Finding Nemo takes it, just ahead of Spirited Away.

This list would probably be different tomorrow, and is not really in order [except for the top one], but for now.....

1/ Sleeping Beauty
2/ Bambi
3/ Pinnochio
4/ The Little Mermaid
5/ The Fox And The Hound
6/ Castle In The Clouds
7/ The Last Unicorn
8/ The Nightmare Before Christmas
9/ Ratatouille
10/ The Iron Giant
11/ Charlotte's Web
12/ All Dogs Go To Heaven
13/Shrek
14/Millenium Actress
15/Spirited Away
16/Gnomeo And Juliet
17/Flushed Away
18/Corpse Bride
19/Despicable Me
20/Wall E

Adore Fantasia too but I've always thought of it as not really a proper film [if you know what I mean]

All the mentioned film's in the above post's are amazing. However, I thought 'Azur and Asmar: the Prince's Quest' was also a little known gem which I liked. I got my son to watch it the other day and he loved it!

Not to be pedantic but it's called Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs.

Practically all the best ones have been mentioned here - ranging from Miyazaki, Disney to Pixar etc. - but the one that has stayed in my mind most in recent memory is How To Train Your Dragon - better than Toy Story 3 with one of the finest scores I've heard in recent times.

EDIT : Definately will have to check out Cloudy Meatballs though, that seems to have passed under my radar.

You will not regret it. I would say it's on the level of Up, How to Train Your Dragon, etc.

You really should, it's awesome and really funny (IMO). It also has a great cast, especially and quite shockingly to some, Mr. T.

Cloudy Meatballs sounds ike a medical condition
