    I agree with that because I've LOVED Christian Bale since I was about nine years old, but not though Newsies. I'd say:

    Aristocats
    Sword in the Stone
    Funa and Fancy Free
    Trhee Caballeros (spelling?)
    I think Lady and the Tramp tends to be a little forgotten
    101 Dalmations
    Robin Hood definitely
    mostly the ones from right after Walt's passing...you can tell his spirit was somehow still there.

    Emperor's New Groove totally!!! I have a funny story about when my aunt saw it:
    She had just had a hysterectomy and her staples were coming out the day after Superbowl Sunday. We weren't gonna watch the game, but my uncle and his brother (I don't remember if anyone else was coming over), so my mom suggested I bring it. I told her, "No, she said it hurt to laugh, this is gonna make her laugh." It did hurt & she LOVED that movie!
    :lol:

    The story and dark edge turns many off, but I think it is very much underrated. Wonderfully imaginative and some splendid animation.
    I will agree with this, the film is the last of it's generation of animated films, and because of it, I think it is a particularely important film...

    I wished they didn't try to graft two books by Lloyd Alexander to get the plot... Now, it is my understanding that this film was the first Disney animated film to have content cut out of the film... I wish they put an uncut edition together for limited release DVD... I want to know what was trimmed out... but sadly, I fear, it will never happen...

    I'd have to say Condorman! A great old live-action classic! Michael Crawford was fantastically funny and Barbara Carrera was beautiful in her pre-Bond days!

    Aristocats is my all time favorite
    Alice in Wonderland...I feel the DVD release didn't get a lot of attention either...
    Treasure Island...I really do like the music and art...and of course the story's good

    But I think all of them are amazing in some way!! I could pick a favorite even out of the "underrated" ones!

    I gotta start with Oliver and Company, one of the last animated films before the new crop of Princess classics. I loved and adored this movie as a kid. It was some of earliest exsposure to Billy Joel!
    *Flight of the Navigator
    *Benji (all of em)
    *Herby (all of em)
    *Ltn. Robinson Crusoe- Dick Van Dyke is just simply the best, good call Cellerhound.
    *Treasure Island- awesome
    *20,000 Leagues Under the Sea
    *Black Caldron
    *Sword and the Stone- I am still waiting for Disney to option TS White's "Once and Future King" which was the basis for this and make a live action version, which would be so awesome.
    *The Absent Minded Professor
    *The Shaggy Dog
    *Max Devlin
    * The Blackhole

    1. Treasure Island

    Not so much underrated as forgotten. Watched it recently and it is a very well made film.

    2. So Dear To My Heart

    Another forgotten one but still a charming film featuring some live action mixed with animation. It was made after Song of the South.

    3. The Great Mouse Detective

    The new batch of young animators were really spreading their wings on this film. Also has that dazzling scene with the clockworks inside Big Ben which utilized the brand new computer animation capabilities.

    4. Tron

    I thought this was a brilliantly conceived film. Experimental and adventurous, but I believe you either love it or hate it.

    5. The Black Cauldron

    The story and dark edge turns many off, but I think it is very much underrated. Wonderfully imaginative and some splendid animation.

    6. The Emperor's New Groove

    Smart, funny script and great characters. I don't understand why so many dislike this one.

    Remember that Fantasia and Alice In Wonderland were considered to be underrated films for years after their initial release. It was only later generations and home video that elevated them to the level of Disney Classics.

    Lt. Robinson Crusoe, USN (Disney)
    Oscar (Touchstone)
    Mystery Alaska (Hollywood Pictures)

    Now of the recent movies...

    Around the World in 80 Days may have been the most underrated movie of last year... It cost way too much for what it was, but if it had opened closer to the holidays it may have done better at the box office..

    Why that would surely be A Goofy Movie.

    Maybe not underrated as much as under-recognized or overlooked...
    Emperor's New Groove (is anyone surprised I mentioned that movie?)
    Treasure Planet
    I heard that Holes was good, although I have not watched it yet.

    BTW, thanks CO for posting your DISNEYPARIS avatar! That thing is so disturbing, yet it cracks me up every time I see it! :lol:

    I'm currently loving the live action films and musicals from the mid-late 1960's. I may just be sentimental or my need to destress, but they are so much fun!
