I just now almost accidentally voted for The Black Cauldron because I was thinking about The Black Hole and that poor little broken droid.

i kind of want to vote for robin hood becuz ROGER MILLER, plus phil harris, and peter ustinov!

the 60s run (up thru robin hood) is all really lazily animated but all really breezily entertaining in a way that the ponderous "masterpieces" just aren't

I really could not deal with the end of Fox & the Hound as a little kid and couldn't stand to rewatch it. I can't even remember what my sentimental favorite was at that age, probably Beauty and the Beast although I think I saw Lady and the Tramp an obscene number of times

i voted for the LION KING because im a sucker for movies that have a title card at the very end

Robin Hood was in constant rotation in our mid-80s VHS. I still remember much of it fondly, except for the seriously dated pop ballad 2/3rds of the way thru the flick.

kingfish, Wednesday, 13 June 2007 15:23 (6 years ago) Permalink

This thread has served the purpose of reminding me that "The Black Hole" exists. Thank you, thread.

Also, Dumbo.

I remember being sorta obsessed with Sword in the Stone as a kid but I don't remember what happens in it at all. We didn't have it on tape and it wasn't at our regular video store so maybe that was the appeal

Dumbo. I mean, the Pink Elephants sequence is the finest animation ever put to film EVER in the history of cinema. I mean, quite a tough choice against Fantasia, but the Pink Elephants clinched it.

Masonic Boom, Wednesday, 13 June 2007 15:35 (6 years ago) Permalink

Wait what was the difference between Fantasia & F2000? Was it just additional content + digitalized?

nickalicious, Wednesday, 13 June 2007 15:35 (6 years ago) Permalink

anybody who hasn't seen Ze's little topologically impossible dance move in caballeros can't really judge the finest animation ever put to film, unfortunately

TOMBOT, Wednesday, 13 June 2007 15:37 (6 years ago) Permalink

F2000 is a whole different (and much worse) movie

lol "ponderous" sorry i became shakey mo for a sec

anyone who isn't voting for the three caballeros is a downright sonofabitch and i wish a curse on you and your family.

if we lived in a horrible, grey, dismal world in which the three caballeros did not exist, i'd have voted for alice in wonderland or dumbo.

I only know 3 Caballeros from the clipz on Sing-Along Songs tapes which puts it in the same category as The Aristocats, Ichabod and Mr. Toad, and uh Song of the South of Disney forbidden fruit I searched for at every video store and made up plots for around the one musical number I'd seen

If you guys haven't seen HUNCHBACK (and I doubt most of you have), you NEED to watch the creepiest song sequence in any animated feature or possibly any movie ever. Evil priest sings about how he must fuck a woman or she'll go to hell.

Abbott, Friday, 15 June 2007 01:12 (6 years ago) Permalink

I kind of had a crush on evil priest when I saw this movie at theater during age 12. ;_;

Abbott, Friday, 15 June 2007 01:13 (6 years ago) Permalink

That was the last Disney film I saw in the theatre...several parents walked out. True story: one old bag said to another, "These Disney people think they're David Lynch or something."

yeah hunchback is sorta classic despite being a hot mess, i remember my parents were heckling it bc of happy ending and demi moore but i had a bunch of crude tracings of the gypsy jester guy in my shitty drawing notebook that summer

I had a crush on him, too.

That religious rapeanger song shit is blood money diamonds gr8080. The rest of the movie doesn't really live up to it.

Holy crap Benji is TEARING SHIT UP on "So You Think You Can Dance," gotta go

Dimension 5ive, Friday, 15 June 2007 01:30 (6 years ago) Permalink

Yeah, I remember when I was watching Hunchback, and that priest scene came, and I was like holy shit, am I still watching a Disney film?! But most of the movie was pretty uneven, and I never understood why, if the theme of the movie was that apperances don't matter, did Esmeralda choose the handsome prince anyway, and the Hunchback was left without any cookie? Either make it a tragedy like the original, or make him get the girl, but the ending we got was pretty half-assed.

I don't get what specifically about King Louie codes as "black", it's not nearly as straightforward as the crows in Dumbo or the cats in Lady & the Tramp. Louis basically plays himself - a goofy jazz singer. His overriding goal is to get the secret of fire from Mowgli (who is also, incidentally, not white). The argument that a white guy acting (arguably) like a black guy while expressing a desire to be more like another non-white character is RACIST seems pretty convoluted to me.
