81% for me. Less than what I was expecting.

24. Robin Hood

"Do it," declared the fox!

Alright, give me a little break though, I already saw one fox-related animated film on the list.

Sam, I too have not seen Aladdin, so you are not alone.

So these 8 are the ones I have some confidence that I've not seen. A lot of the classic Disney are ones I know I watched as a kid but only remember because I've seen classic scenes in other settings. Anyway, of these eight, I"m not sure I'm all that interested outside of Summer Wars, which I'm super interested in. Japan > America

99. The AristoCats (1970)
96. The Princess And The Cobbler (1993)
95. SamÔ W˘zu (Summer Wars, 2009)
91. The Rescuers Down Under (1990)
88. Anastasia (1997)
82. The Great Mouse Detective (1986)
80. The Brave Little Toaster (1987)
59. The Fox And The Hound (1981)

You should probably watch all those, they're grrrrrreat!

I think this list is a great success as there are many films people have not seen and probably wouldn't have any interest in otherwise.

Out of that list, beside Summer Wars, which I need to see as well, I highly recommend the Thief and the Cobbler.  It is really imaginative, visually stunning and Johnathan Winters is actually funny.

Yeah, I figure it should be on my list to actually watch if only because I like the Arabian Nights themed stories. Aladdin is one of my favorites and the TV Movie Arabian Nights would nearly make my top-100. I'll leave the others for when I have a kid (or when my nephew is a few years older).

I had so much fun watching films in preparation for this year's list. A couple even ended up in my top 100 (Whisper of the Heart, The Girl Who Leapt Through Time). So, I'm looking forward to checking out the rest of these.

I also anticipate Satoshi Kon's films moving higher on the list as more people see them, particularly Perfect Blue. The Pixar run at the end there kind of made me a little queasy.

The recognition of greatness should never make one queasy.

It gets a bit ridiculous though. I mean, I had all but two on my list and like all of them but it still feels like an overstated level of dominance. I guess the problem is that we can't agree on which are the best so you've got everyone putting their personal favorite few at the top and the end result is all of them get up there. I'm sure there are a few people who would do so, but I just don't think most people submitting ballots had 8 Pixar films in the top 20 or whatever it was. At least not people who have seen enough animated films ;)

If I was a little too bitter through the process though, the one that really did me in was Nausicaa. Aside from being my top animated and top-10 overall film, looking through the lists I could have sworn it was headed to a top 5 finish so to see it back in the 20s was pretty shattering.

I agree with all this.
