One user said, “Disney's The Jungle Book. Unforgettable characters, a great story about growing from a child to a young man, the best adoptive gay parents in film history, beautiful animation and soundtrack, funny and scary and deep and perfect. 101 Dalmatians is a close second, but that's the winner for me. 1960's, Disney was wonderful.”

Multiple people agreed that Pixar's computer-animated film Up was the best of all time. It has one of the greatest love stories ever told within the bigger picture, but not a word is spoken during its telling. And the music is fantastic.

Emperors New Groove (2000)

Emperors New Groove. We have plenty of beautiful animated movies, but very few that nail comedy so perfectly. Story and visual-wise, I like Hercules and Castle in the Sky, but Emperor's New Groove will always be my go-to,” a user admitted. 

 Robin Hood (1973)

The Lion King. The original one,” a user clarified. The original Lion King also has an incredible musical score and soundtrack. “Can You Feel the Love Tonight?” by Elton John was playing every time you turned on the radio when it came out.
