As the title states, you can share your favorite movies from when you were a kid. You can also share any current kid/family movies that you like.

Well anyways, my all-time favorite movie when I was little was Dom Bluth's "All Dogs go to Heaven." I just loved and still love the main character Charlie (I still have his plushie); I also think he's the reason I love German Shepherds. But know as I think back, "All Dogs go to Heaven" may have not have been the best movie for a 4 year-old to watch; the movie had gambling, alcohol, murder, and to an extent, shooting.... Oh well, I still love it! :mrgreen:

I remember watching a bunch of movies from my childhood a second time around when my brother was born... There are so many innuendos and references in kids' movies designed to appeal to older audiences (most notably parents) in order to placate them.

In terms of my favorite movie, I can't really say that I had one. My most watched was probably the Rescuers or something like that.

Hey, I loved All Dogs Go to Heaven! The childhood movies that really stuck out in my head were An Extremely Goofy Movie, Pooh's Grand Adventure: The Search for Christopher Robin, The Brave Little Toaster (which, upon more recent observation, is a thoroughly effed-up movie), Pokemon the Movie 2000, The Hunchback of Notre Dame, and The Aristocats.

Particularly The Aristocats though (surprise surprise :P).

Not so much childhood as meant for children but liked anyway; Treasure Planet and Titan A.E.
Both were absolutely fabulous movies that sadly grossed terribly at the box office (Titan A.E. didn't even make half the production budget)
I remember The secret of NIMH and The Rescuers from way back when, along with The sword in the Stone.
Then... A bunch of random Tom and Jerry movies.

God, I feel old.

Corinne... The Brave little Toaster was an extremely disturbing movie. It was whacked. 10+ onscreen deaths. And the clown.

The Aristocats was a good movie and so was Treasure Planet. Though I for some reason found the black hole scene scary at the time...

Not one of my favorite movies, but I learned my first cuss word, "Damn" for the movie Ant when I was like 5

Jaws :D yup I watched it when I was a kid. That's more than likely why I love sharks.

And of course Beauty and the Beast was another one that I loved.

I loved Hocus Pocus when I was little, and I still do. Probably one of my favorite things about Halloween still. It's just one of those classics. :)

Toy Story was apparently my favorite thing ever, but I don't really remember much from my childhood. I have a really bad memory. I do vaguely remember liking Dumbo a lot, but I haven't seen it in years.

The Lion King and All Dogs Go To Heaven. And Land Before Time. Hollllllly flipping crap Land Before Time. That movie was why I irrationally wanted to be a dinosaur when I grew up.

Ohh, I loved The BFG, and Back to the Future. And Matilda - great one for quotes, with "I'm big, you're little; I'm smart, you're dumb; I'm right, you're wrong. And there's nothing you can do about it!" and "Would little Brucey come up here, pleease? >: D" Ahh, for the days when adults were bad and that's all there was to it.

That movie freaked the hell out of me when I first saw it (I was like 7 though, so...). Didn't that have Bette Milder in it?

And Matilda-


I kind of liked that one. In my opinion, it could have been better, but it is pretty good.

My favorites are the Toy Story series, Up, How to Train Your Dragon...and yes, I've watched and enjoyed these despite being in high school. Deal with it. :D

Usually I'm completely opposed to sequels, but the Toy Story films never cease to blow my mind.

Also Matilda! I loved Matilda! It always sort of bothered me, even as a little kid, how nonsensical it was that her teacher adopted her.

I wasn't quite as young when I saw this one, but Spirited Away was one for the ages. xP

I'm 22 and married and enjoy all of those too. Up made me cry so bad. And HTTYD was awesome.

I loved Rock-a-Doodle, pretty much any Muppets movie, Hocus Pocus, The Black Cauldron, and aaaaah not that it's a children's movie at all....but Highlander, the original movie, Loooooved that when I was kid. Still do.
