Top 100 Best Animated Movies Of All Time

Greatest Cartoon Films of All time

What are the best animated movies? If i was given a list of movies of various genres and was asked to pick a single film of particular genre, i would have gone with Animation genre. Reason being that Animation is full package of entertainment. A well made Animated movie could not only covers up almost all the genres (Action, Comedy, Romance, Drama, Fantasy and even Horror and science fiction) but also could be watched along with whole family. Kids love animated movies (and So Do I). The days when animation/cartoon films were considered to be only confined to kids are long gone. Not only animation movies made today are able to attract adult audience but are also able to gain cult following.

The very first Animation film is said to be Snow White and Seven Dwarfs which was released in 1937 by Disney Studios. The film met critical acclaim and every body knows the success story of Disney after that. In those days Hand Drawn Animation or Traditional Animation was used to make animated movies. Where several hand drawn pictures were moved so fast (12 frames per second) that people were tricked into thinking that the objects they are seeing are actually moving. Then came CGI or Computer Graphics Imagery which made the animation process much easier. Studios made fortunes from Computer Animated films. In 21st century, 3D Animation movies are on move and are currently the leaders in highest grossing animated films.
