I love Hocus Pocus, and it totally tripped me out to realize the kid who played Thackery is on NCIS now. Plus bonus awesome points for having Doug Jones, who I love. I fangirl like crazy over the Winnifred statue at Planet Hollywood in Downtown Disney.

This movie is a generic term that may be derived from an ancient language and is presently used by magicians, It is is an addictive, action-packed and it also entertaining game that's comparable, or better than, anything found on the home cartridge systems.

We just watched "The Cat From Outer Space." We all liked it very much. The kids, 6, 12, and 18 are all used to Disney movies only being animation but they loved this kind of movie. It also brings me back to childhood Disney memories.

Agreed! Agreed! Agreed!

I've always like "The Richest Cat in the World" - I named my pet cat after that character (Leo) a long time ago.

I also liked Mr. Boogedy and Hocus Pocus (for Halloween).

I'm with you 626! We named our dog "Pacha" from this movie. I also love "Meet the Robinson's". I really not sure why these movies were not more popular. They were each witty and smart and worked at both the adult and kid level.

A lot of my favourites tend to be less popular/less well known.


Hercules
Hunchback of Notre Dame. (Both great films. Hunchback in particular has some beautiful music and animation.)

Recess: School's Out!
The Great Mouse Detective
Atlantis: The Lost Empire
Oliver and Company

The Little Mermaid 2: Return to The Sea (Pretty good for a DTV sequel)

The Cat From Outer Space, I remember being up late one night watching the Disney Channel, and this movie came on. At that time I didn't much care for older films.... Until I watched this movie. :D

I like the original "Incredible Journey" -- the one before the talking animals remake. (Although at least the talking animal version doesn't actually have their mouths moving...that drives me crazy!)
