30s to 50s actually. Don't forget the original, Snow White!

The late 80s to late 90s one is more of a resurgence era but most of us grow in this era so I decided to make a poll based on this era.

Yep, and there's a very good reason for it: if characters such as Snow White, Pinocchio, Pochahontas, Cinderella etc. are more memorable it's not as much to do with Disney or Walt himself except that he could pick out the best source material to plagiarise adapt Many of the films are so resonant because they draw on deep-rooted cultural archetypes, ancient folklore or the literature of more recent authors such as Hans Christian Anderson, the Brothers Grimm, which was itself based on deep-rooted cultural archetypes.

Walt Disney was a master at what he did, animation and delivery - but definitely not on the creation-level, i.e. characterisation, plot etc. In fact many of the fables were candied-up, dumbed down and probably lost a lot in their adaption for children - however there is a massive flip-side to any "loss" in that most people would have a far more limited awareness of these significant cultural fables if it wasn't for Disney. Indeed it is through Disney that we can go back to the Germanic roots (case in-point: recent Snow White film with that girl from Twilight).

The more recent pixar films aren't any more original - I mean what child hadn't imagined their toys coming to life, monsters in the cupboard at night or if animals could interact with each other. That's why the pixar generation comes across as a lot more frivolous than "classic" disney - they're based on a much less concrete and less culturally significant concepts.

Re: What is your favorite Disney movie from its golden era (late 1980s - late 1990s)?

I'm an only child so I haven't watched any of these in ages, but from what I remember:

The Little Mermaid (1989) - I think it was good, don't remember very much
The Rescuers Down Under (1990) - Didn't watch it
Beauty and the Beast (1991) - Don't remember it that well to be honest...
Aladdin (1992) - 2nd favourite And the most fun one IMO
The Lion King (1994) - Fave
Pocahontas (1995) - Like Beauty and the Beast, saw it but don't really remember it
The Hunchback of Notre Dame (1996) - It was okay, meh
Hercules (1997) - 3rd fave, almost as fun as Aladdin
Mulan (1998) - I remember it pretty well, I definitely liked it
Tarzan (1999) - Liked it too

The belief that man is an irresolute creature pulled this way and that by two forces of equal strength, alternately winning and losing the battle for his soul; the conviction that human life is nothing more than an uncertain struggle between heaven and hell; the faith in two opposed entities, Satan and Christ - all this was bound to engender those internal discords in which the mind, excited by the incessant fighting, stimulated as it were by the constant promises and threats, ends up by giving in and prostitutes itself to whichever of the two combatants has been more obstinate in its pursuit. Life isn't black and white, it's gold.

Close between the first three on the list. Beauty and the Beast is a classic and The Rescuers Down Under is more the the Rescuers down Underrated. The Little Mermaid is my personal favorite, though. Ursula is by far the greatest Disney villain.

Bitttchhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh You Better Pay It Honey! The Devil Is A Liar!!!!! Bitches Get Interviews And Shit? Where They Do That At Honey? Girls Are Late Honey!!!! The Queen Needs To Get Into It Honey Cause The Girls Is Late Out Here! Yes Honey Im Throwing Epic Shade!

Am still amazed at the early ones being hand drawn and coloured! Incredibile work! And, prior to Snow White, there was no such thing as a feature length animated movie. People though Walt was crazy and what he was is a genius!

Beauty and the Beast is my favorite overall Disney film because of the music, story, animation and it had a well developed, conflicted male protagonist. I also loved Belle's mature voice.

P.S. BaTB was the first ever animated film to be nominated for Best Picture Oscar before the category for Best Animated Film even existed!

Same with Pocahontas. I especially loved the night forest scenes in the movie. Judy Kuhn made an amazing singing voice for Pocahontas..
