    I was just getting ready to say this exact thing. Lion King was a masterpeice but really seemed to end that era. I'm getting used to seeing all Pixar now, and they've come up with some real masterpeices in that genre too, but the 'old school' animation sort of ended with Lion King.

    As for my all time animated favorite...Pinnochio by far! LOVE that movie.

    Snow White because the Wicked Queen is my all time favorite. She's my pencil cup.

    Now my video "nerdness" is about to come out, as I worked in a video store during the late 80's early 90's.

    Lion King, Little Mermaid, Beauty and the Beast were the first Disney movies to integrate computer animation in them, at the time it was a BFD. Now, if you study those films closely, vs. old school Disney, you will see the backgrounds have additional movement to them that was computer generated. This was before Pixar started, so they were the pre-cursor.

    ^I remember reading an interview with one of the animators who worked on Lion King that was talking about how they did the stampede using computer animation. He said that some of the guys who worked on 101 Dalmatians were still around and were complaining about how easy they have it now since back then they had to individually animate every single one of the dogs.

    i don't mind the animation on the disney movies after the little mermaid but i find that it's not just the animation style that changed, the writing and music changed too... i didn't mind the little mermaid or the lion king but IMO they don't compare to the movies from before. and i haven't really liked any of the ones that came after the lion king.

    I don't think those early/pioneer animators get nearly enough credit for their artistic and technical skills. It's incredibly labour-intensive work that requires dedication and unwillingless to compromise. Everything has to be perfect. Snow White was the first groundbreaking animated feature film and some 60 years later it's still technically brilliant. You may not agree with the Disney ethos but you have to admire the craftsmanship and attention to detail.

    As factually inaccurate as it was my favorite was Pocahontas. I just have to pretend it isn't Mel Gibson talking..

    I loved the Jungle Book too but then after seeing The Little Mermaid it sort of paled. I love the sound track to the Little Mermaid better as well. I know we aren't talking songs here but sometimes the music does it for me and my favorite all time Disney song is Colors of the Wind (Pocahontas) by Judy Kume and not Vanessa Williams.

    Disney sent to many messages - girls needed a man to live happily ever after and the mother was going to die (Bambi, Fox and Hound, Snow White.....) I like the competition but Disney is still a biggie in animation.

    I Know! Vanessa Williams butchered that song. Judy Kume sung it a million times better. That song and scene from Pocahontas gets me all choked up, but the over all movie sucked ass IMO.

    Well if we are including Pixar, I have to revise my list to include Monsters, Inc. Boo is probably one of my favorite characters ever.
