In responding on another blog, I admitted to being a long time watcher and lover of Disney films, are you? If so, what's your favorite Disney film and why? Whether it be live action (Polyanna, Old Yeller, Apple Dumpling Gang, etc...); animated (Snow White, Bambi, Aladdin, Mulan, etc...), or CGI (Toy Story, Monsters Inc, The Incredibles, etc...), tell us what Disney film(s) you like best and what it was about them.

I am sometimes called "Mary Poppins" because of my work with children in the classroom. I do dance a great deal. I have won state awards for correlation of dancing into education. I wish I could teach with that much magic! My children like "The Lion King". There are two characters in the Lion King that are remarkable (the warthog, Pumbaa and the meerkat Timon). The children watch it over and over. When my son was young we used to get the biggest kick watching him laugh at the disney animation of "Robin Hood". We rented it so many times that we finally had to purchase the movie from the video store. That was when they were just viewable through movie stores. My mother has this amazing story of how years ago she went to see "Snow White" It was the first animated movie. She tells how it was in black and white but, everyone loved it. The town where my mother grew up has become a forgotten place. When you drive through there you can close your eyes and actually pretend it is years ago.

What I love about everyone's contributions so far is that they almost always include a happy childhood memory (Mariana, can't imagine you dressed as Mary Poppins, was there an umbrella involved?). True, there were some politically incorrect moments, but they have to be put into the context of the times. That's the disadvantage of being a classic - you may appear anachranistic years later. Pertithelion, I thought the bloopers on Bug's Life, Monsters, Inc. and the Incredibles were hilarious!

Re: Mariana2005 write: Omg Winehrh, The Jungle Book!!! I love it!!! MW, you remind me of a time when I used to dress like Mary poppins and carrying a small bag and umbrella, I tried to jump from the balcony thinking I was going to be able to fly!!

I just loved the music in those 2 movies. They were so politically incorrect though! (As are most Disney movies) LOL

To this day I cannot watch Old Yeller and Bambi. My son caught me watching Old Yeller a couple of years ago and walked over and turned off the television. He said "You are not allowed to watch this!" I'm absolutely grief stricken for days. Jungle Book and Dumbo! Such great music.

John, that is so cool about your brother ! Disney does do a good job, much better than anyone else I can think of. My all time most favorite movie in the world is National Velvet. The old one with Elizabeth Taylor and Mickey Rooney. I think it depicts the very best of how a family should behave with one another..how faith is rewarded..how anyone should be able to follow their OWN dreams, even if it goes against the norm. If you havent seen it, I highly recommend it.I would like to hear your opinion of it.

Hey everyone, Great picks, all! I have to say that on this list so far I love them all but Lady & The Tramp takes the cake! What a great story of self discovery, love, overcoming the odds and friendship! Shaz, we grew up on Sunday nights with Wonderful World of Disney too! My brother was a supervisor at Disney's feature animation for years & now he produces the most popular preschool show in the world for Nick Jr. I think Disney does a great job of intertwining important moral and personal lessons into entertaining movies.

Who made the movie about as evil circus arriving to town drawn by the fears,envy, greed, and self doubt in the peoples hearts? Was thinking a Disney film... It had me to rethink what I could be harboring in my live that was dragging me down. I liked all of Walt Disney's films.. It was one of the few quality time spent with Dad. He would take us to the drive-in to watch it.. one of the few moments Dad would take out of his time to spend with us. Jungle Book was a good one.. One of the Buzzards looked like a great uncle...

HI John,,, I too, grew up watching the many wonderful Disney movies. Sunday nights was "Wide World of Disney" night at my house. They are responsbile for so many of the best family movies..it would be very difficult to pick just one. I did love the Pirates trilogy, and of course Marianna is correct..J DEPP is one hot honey all swashbuckling and "affected"... oooppps,,sorry got distracted for sec I love all the movies they have done with Pixar,,(and rue the day that I prematurely sold my Pixar stock !) Monsters Inc is just so adoreable...I went out and bought a bunch of Sulley stuffed animals to guard my closets ! My dvd collection is crammed pasced with Disney/associates made movies. That and National Geographic nature series make up the bulk of my collection. OKOKOKOKOKOK,,,I guess if pressed, I would have to say Monsters Inc. But then again....Alladin was totally hysterical with Robin Williams as the genie... ok Monsters Inc,then the Pirates, then Finding Nemo, then Alladin,,,etc
