Well yes, Disney taught us that magic itself is in fact, entirely real.

Now think about that for a minute.

I mean REALLY think.

If the very thought of "magic being real" does not scare you down to the most primal fear-centers of the brain, then you are either entirely 100% naieve with child-like delight, or just plain STUPID.

It depends on what you mean by "magic"! Disney animation is technically superb and innovative, and I love watching a lot of it for its artistic merits, but, like Indie said, their butchering of classic stories and perpetuation of some extremely sexist ideals is tiresome. Most of their stuff, especially in these later days, is so cliched, watered down, bland and inoffensive as to be nearly unwatchable.

Okay yeah, guess I was making Disney out to be a lot scarier sounding than they actually are in any practical sense.

Damn, I was playing right into Disney's hands!

Not only is Ice Age 3 not Disney, Toy Story 3 is also not Disney (it's Pixar, yes, I know they are owned by Disney but they are a separate production crew than Disney animation).

Yeah, Disney owns them 100% now. My Pixar stock is no longer Pixar stock. It's Disney stock. (I get what you meant, though.)

As far as Disney being "evil" I don't think that has any real part in their movies being good or not. And since this is "Best Disney movie ever?" here, whether they are evil makes no difference. We're talking about which of their films are the best, not about the company. The animators who made such magic as Pinocchio were amazing artists, and I'd wager probably not evil men.

ANYWAYS, I would have to put The Great Mouse Detective as my #1 just for personal reasons. I love it. Objectively it is far from the best, but subjectively I adore Basil, Toby, and the rest.

The Emperor's New Groove is also high on my list, as well as A Goofy Movie, Aladdin, and Sleeping Beauty. A wide variety!

Riki: It pretty much HAS to be a subjective call though. To even suggest there is an objective method of determining what could qualify as 'best' is fairly close to insulting the craft itself.

Personally, I am a just as big a fan of Great Mouse Detective also, and it is definitely the best in my overall subjective sense. If it weren't for how awesome that film is, I would end up calling Robin Hood my favorite instead. (It is hard to describe why I find those films so timelessly charming)

Plus there are a lot of separate reasons you could call something the best. If we are talking best music, I gotta put my vote for Hunchback.

If we are talking animation OR characterization, then I would most certainly put my vote for The Incredibles. (assuming we ARE counting works by Pixar. The rule of thumb I would use would be if their franchise is being sold in "The Disney Store" then it totally counts as Disney) Dumbo comes dangerously close in both respects though, it is a clear victor if we are removing Pixar from the equation entirely.

If we limit it just to princess flicks, then The Little Mermaid wins best princess by a landslide. Beauty and the Beast would be second only because Gaston is my absolute fav, but overall it takes second by a very wide gap. Not a big fan of their treatment of princesses, but Ariel is that one true exception. (The way I see it, Jane from Tarzan does not actually count. But is contentious enough to worth mentioning if only to make it abundantly clear that she does not qualify to even be in the running for best princess. Jane is not the "princess of the jungle", she is the QUEEN of the jungle.)

If we are talking about 'best' in terms of the animation, the original Fantasia gets my vote. Storywise, not so sure, the "princess" theme is so worn out, it's hard to say which one is best so I don't even consider those (although my favorite "princess" film is Sleeping Beauty) Great Mouse Detective was pretty darn good, though, and I like both 'Rescuers' films quite a bit.

I hate to get political, but Evil Demon Creature may have a good point.
Looking at it, from a materialistic point of view...
Read this article, before you buy your next Disney product. -> http://www.globallabourrights.org/reports?id=0656
The same can be said for many companies of course.

Oh I didn't mean we could objectively determine which was "best" merely that The Great Mouse Detective is objectively NOT the best. By no fault of the animators or anything, it was simply rushed through production and their budget was severely cut partway through. They didn't have the chance to make it the best, hence why some scenes have non-moving characters in the background and there are a ton of subtle errors that would have been caught if they'd been given the opportunity. Hope that clears it up better, I didn't mean it any other way.
