Alice in Wonderland didn't do it for me. Not sure I want to see the movie either...

Hunchback of Notre Dame: I found some of the subject matter to be really somewhat inappropriate for a Disney animated film.

Escape to Witch Mountain (1975): Just really, really bad.

Hercules: Sure, it's a great movie in general, but doesn't come anywhere close to actual Greek mythology.

Oh gosh.. I more than a couple...

1. Dumbo- I hate the circus (okay, I'm terrified of the circus) and thought it was such a sad movie.
2. Pinocchio- I really really dislike this movie. I don't like Stromboli, Monstro, even Jimminy Cricket..
3. Snow White- No reason.. just dislike it.
4. Bambi- It's cute but too sad.
5. Hunchback- Again, sad, upsetting, etc.

I'm not that great a fan of Bambi, but it has nothing to do with it being sad. While it is unquestionably beautiful, I've always thought it really suffers in terms of characterization. There just really isn't much in terms of character development to me. Thumper is probably the most colorful character, but that's mainly because the child who voiced him wildly overacted.

Still, it is beautiful, and I don't hate it.

Robin Hood does very little for me. Recycled animation, recycled formula, recycled character designs ... it was made on the cheap, and it shows (compared with some of Disney's other work that was made cheaply and did a better job of hiding it).

I'm not particularly happy in general with most of Disney's animation after 101 Dalmatians and prior to The Little Mermaid. It was the heyday of Xerography at the studio, and almost everything had rough, black pencil outlines. I was and am much happier with the flowing, clean lines (in colors complementary with that of the adjacent paint) of earlier work, and which returned in the '90s. Mermaid used Xerography, but with colored toners (and there seems to have been an effort to keep the lines clean and tight). Xerography started on 101 Dalmatians, but for some reason it really enhanced that particular film.

Like so many of you I really didn't enjoy Bambi. I was very young at the time and it was so long ago that theaters still had balconies that were the usual sitting area for younger kids and their parents. I cried when I finally grasped the fact that Bambi's mom was not coming back.

I feel a bit like a freak for liking most of the ones you guys have mentioned. Bedknobs and Broomsticks was my favourite film ever for years, I can't tell you how many times I've subjected my brothers to watching that film with me. That and Rescuers Down Under (though, as I've gotten older I don't see so much what I liked about it now. I think it was just the cool Australian animals).

Cinderella is one I never got. I found her annoying and a little just well...blah.

I also don't like many of the pixar films. I can appreciate them for their beauty, but the plots just don't do it for me. Though I love A Bugs Life.

I totally agree with you! Especially on the Hunchback of ND. Totally inappropriate! I've already posted my dislikes, but I have to add Oliver and Company. (I still like way more than I don't like!)

I actually haven't seen most of the movies you guys mentioned...haha. Probably because I wasn't interested as a child. I was into the Lion King and Beauty and the Beast. They are all on my netflix now though.

I just saw Snow White the other day and it was just..okay. I realize it was the first one though. But I found it really boring.
Also I didn't like Ratatouille and actually didn't finish it all. But I was also watching it by myself.
And..the Little Mermaid is not my favorite. I like the music and everything but just the fact that Ariel changes her whole life for this guy she doesn't even know is kind of strange.

Peter Pan
I think because all the main characters in these are boys, but I never liked them as a kid. I want to give them all a try now though!

Mary Poppins.. (CAN'T stand it, idk why)

I also don't care for...
Lilo and Stitch (I like the music though!)

Never really saw..
The Incredibles or Cars
I've had them on in the background, but couldn't get into them.

Feels good to say that......

"You unlock this door with the key of imagination. Beyond it is another dimension. A dimension of sound. A dimension of sight. A dimension of mind. You're moving into a land of both shadow and substance, of things and ideas. You've just crossed over into...The Twilight Zone. Hollywood, 1939. Amid the glitz and the glitter of a bustling, young movie town at the height of its golden age, The Hollywood Tower Hotel was a star in its own right; a beacon for the show business elite. Now, something is about to happen that will change all that. The time is now on an evening very much like the one we have just witnessed. Tonight's story on The Twilight Zone is somewhat unique and calls for a different kind of introduction. This, as you may recognize, is a maintenance service elevator still in operation, waiting for you. We invite you, if you dare, to step aboard because in tonight's episode, you are the star. And this elevator travels directly to - The Twilight Zone."

I gotta say I'm not a big fan of Mary Poppins either. Some parts were good and Julie Andrews is cute but I fell asleep halfway through that one too. Maybe I'm just not a big fan of the musical movies.

Wow not a lot of you liked Bambi or Dumbo! Them two were firm faves of mine when i was a little girl.

I will admit that i do not care for The Jungle Book, boring film, boring characters. Hated it when i was young and i hate it now. If i'm having trouble sleeping I will just put this film on.
