Amen to that! I love that movie, but it gets no respect from the company or the critics. Sad, really....

I'm a huge fan of Hocus Pocus-- it's shown all the time on Disney Channel and ABC Family around Halloween, but very few people I talk to have seen it. It's so funny, though!

My favorite lesser known Disney films are:

A Goofy Movie (the music is so catchy)
Newsies
The Parent Trap (the newer one)
Oliver and Company (great songs)
Stuck In The Suburbs

I have a few that come to mind:

Newsies - like others have said. Some simply incredible music and good acting.
Condorman - Not everyone's cup of tea, but I really enjoyed it
Never a dull moment - with Dick Vandyke. Very funny gangster movie
Tall Tale - with Patrick Swayze. This movie was so cheesy, I actually really enjoyed it
In search of the Castaways - with Haley Mills. Great old movie. Lots of fun
That Darn Cat (the new version) - Doug E. Doug is really funny. Great family movie.
Cool Runnings - Who doesn't enjoy a movie about a Jamaican bob sled team?

These are the first ones to pop to mind. I'm sure there are many others as well.

I love "Stand Out", but since you have to buy the whole movie soundtrack to get that and "i2i" on iTunes, I had to settle for the Mitchel Musso cover from Disneymania 7, which definitely does Tevin Campbell justice.

As for "Newsies"...it has some of the best musical potential I've ever seen. and "Oliver and Company" has some of the catchiest music there is...thank goodness they cast Billy Joel. I can't stop listening to "Why Should I Worry".

Less popular I love Meet the Robinson's.

Less known would be Johnny Tremain. I remember watching on the Wonderful of Disney when I was a kid. I loved it so much I got the book out of the library to read.

I have a droid phone which comes with several music markets so I have the original version of stand out. I'll have to find Musso's version, it sounds interesting.

Since adding the Newsies music last week I've been listening to it almost non stop. I love it!
