Of all Disney's movies, this is possibly the most iconic of them all. It has spawned a live action version of "The Sorcerer's Apprentice", a CGI film called "Dinosaur", based on the dinosaur segment of this movie, and made such indelible marks on our imaginations as the winged balrog-like demon in "Night on Bald Mountain", the cute Chinese mushrooms and ice skating snow fairies of "Nutcracker Suite", and the exotic Classical rendition od Beethoven's Pastoral Symphony. The movie is filled with magnificent images that have been picked up and referenced by countless other films for children. This is as good an introduction to classical program music as you can give a child.
4. Bambi (1942)
G | 70 min | Animation, Drama, Family
The story of a young deer growing up in the forest.
Votes: 108,674 | Gross: $102.80M
Despite the unforgettable imagery of little Bambi and his playmates as a very young fawn, this is actually a hard and gritty nature film about the realities of life in the wild for forest animals. It is both beautiful and chilling, with some of the most beautiful photography of any animated film.

As they say, she's still the fairest of them all. A young German princess, persued by an evil queen who wants to kill her, she hides in the Black Forest where she recieves shelter from a group of rustic Dwarves, and endears her way into their hearts. Still a hallmark of charm and enchantment with several very scary moments. One of the greatest achievements of all time in animated film making.
6. A Christmas Carol (2009)
PG | 96 min | Animation, Drama, Family
An animated retelling of Charles Dickens' classic novel about a Victorian-era miser taken on a journey of self-redemption, courtesy of several mysterious Christmas apparitions.
Votes: 85,121 | Gross: $137.86M
Not strictly a traditional animated film, this is nevertheless a gorgeous Christmas card of a movie, perfect in its Victorian glory and perfectly balances the comedy with the creepiness. Jim Carrey is surprisingly good as Scrooge, and Gary Oldman is the perfect Bob Crachit. Not for young children because of the scary scenes, but nevertheless one of the best versions of Dickens' classic on film.
7. Cinderella (1950)
G | 74 min | Animation, Family, Fantasy
When Cinderella's cruel stepmother prevents her from attending the Royal Ball, she gets some unexpected help from the lovable mice Gus and Jaq, and from her Fairy Godmother.

One of Disney's most magical films of all time. Abused and neglected by her step-family, a young girl and her animal friends are spirited off on the adventure of a lifetime by a kindly fairy godmother where she finds true love on a magical night. Wonderful, wonderful.

A living puppet, with the help of a cricket as his conscience, must prove himself worthy to become a real boy.
Votes: 106,222 | Gross: $84.25M
In a day before computers, this unforgettable story of love and loyalty was created with gorgeous attention to detail. Colors and textures are luxuriantly depicted, from the grains of wood on a table to the luminescent wax drippings of a candle and the velvety fur of a kitten. An unforgettable story with unforgettable characters.
9. The Adventures of Ichabod and Mr. Toad (1949)
Approved | 68 min | Animation, Comedy, Family
An animated adaptation of "The Wind in the Willows" followed by an adaptation of "The Legend of Sleepy Hollow".
While I very much enjoy the English charm of the "Wind and the Willows" adaptation, I am really speaking of what I consider the most faithful version of all of the "Legend of Sleepy Hollow". Bing Crosby narrates this Halloween story, which is both very funny and at tomes very creepy. A great short film, which our family watches every Halloween. You should, too.
10. Dumbo (1941)
G | 64 min | Animation, Drama, Family
Ridiculed because of his enormous ears, a young circus elephant is assisted by a mouse to achieve his full potential.
Votes: 98,800 | Gross: $1.60M
Few things are more adorable that baby elephants. This often moving story of a baby elephant and his mother is charming little story that no one can possibly forget. That goes for you, too.
