@Megan Payette Calling me expletive words like that aren't the best way to make me respect other peoples' opinions. If anything, the more you cuss at someone, the more likely you'll end up in trouble. Everyone, including I, have the rights to voice our views or opinions on something or anything we want to say or write about. To be honest, not everyone agrees with one another. If you don't even like what I post, or again, if you can't handle people who hate the movie, then don't reply. Just ignore and you'll be fine. You'll have to accept that not everyone is going to like the same doggone movie. The whole "Lion King is a Kimba rip-off" controversy is too well known to be denied and it has been said, discussed and debated many times. I'm honest and I don't act like some pretentious jerk like you think I am. I don't know who this "Confused Matthew" guy is other then the fact that he has a YouTube site, and I'm not a Spongebob fan, so the things you've said about me is false.

Wow Fennecus, not only are you are an asshole but you're pretentious asshole. Wishing that a movie was never made just because you didn't like it just screams prick with a stick up his ass. By the way are you a fan of Confused Matthew because it seems like it. I however enjoyed the movie, also there's no actual proof that The Lion King and Kimba the White Lion are connected apart from their names. Besides I bet that you're the kind of person who thinks the Spongebob movie is better than the Lion King which in reality it's not! If you can't handle people who like a movie that you hate than leave as soon as possible.

People may have different opinions from one another, which I can understand. But treating The Lion King like it's way above the rest just isn't right. Regardless what a billion people say otherwise, I still think it's a pile of junk that should never have been made.

It is not harsh to say that The Lion King is a piece of garbage. It really is one terrible pile of junk, and I wish Disney never made the movie.
First of all, I’m an anime fan, most specifically one that has a preference to original storylines. Second, I do not care for rip-offs and The Lion King is a rip-off of Kimba, which is a better anime series to watch then this overrated mess that many people call the “Best” of all animated films not realizing that even the worst film will always be superior to The Lion King. Third, The Lion King is not classic (So many other films made more in the box office and so on). And fourth, how they portray certain animals is not only wrong and inaccurate, but also stereotypical. The hyena characters (Which are the worst villains Disney has made) are so bad that even people who happen to research and support real spotted hyenas hate these fictional characters from the movie, and went as far as boycotting the whole movie to help preserve the animals in the wild.
All I can hope for is that The Lion King will be long forgotten by the next 50 years. To be honest, I cannot stand a movie that’s a lame rip-off with a bad hyena portrayal ending up being a “good” movie that’s better then all other animated features both old and new. Heck, people can’t say anything nice about most other films because of this movie, and it’s like they’re all forgotten because people think they all suck and that they think The Lion King is the one and only good traditionally animated feature, which is so wrong. Anyone who has a brain would realize how evil, overrated and obnoxious that The Lion King really is. There are a billion other animated features out there that you can watch, people. So stop sticking with this one!
If you happen to be one of those losers who thinks that The Lion King is the best and better then other films, then you suck. But if you like other films better then The Lion King and is willing to have a fresh, optimistic point of view on things, then good for you. The more optimistic people are, the better.

Beauty and the Beast deserved the best picture nomination at the academy awards! what's really cool is i saw a clip of Belle and the Beast and Chip at the oscars presenting the nominees for best animated short subject. i love it when Celine Dion, Peabo Bryson and Angela Launsbury sang at the oscars. and i heard that Mandy Moore and Zachery Levi are singing at the oscars at Feb 27th! that would be amazing!

Ugh. That darn Lion King. I wish that piece of garbage was never even made. Besides, none of it's characters are good. Especially the hyena trio because they are easily the worst offender of the bunch: I never get why a movie needs to have this putrid trio in order to become a big hit.

"The Lion King" is my favorited animated movie of all time, followed by "The Phantom Tollbooth," "Spirited Away," and "Beauty & the Beast."
The Lion King is one of the major reasons I think I love movie making so much. I recall a couple years ago when Spielberg got the Demille Award he made a speech about how he used to re-create a train wreck from one of Demille's movies when he was a kid, and he did it over and over until his parents made him stop. Well... I was watching this and I was shocked. I used to push my Mufasa toy off the staircase over and over until my parents made me stop... I'm still not sure why... I think they thought I might fall off the stairs or something silly like that...
I identify w/Belle... same coloring... love of stories... above average intelligence... estrangement from peers...
Beauty & the Beast in 3D... YUCK!!! I hope not!

I have one more Beauty and The Beast related question other than how did you not get the 2002 DVD. Since some of your Dreamworks and Disney lookbacks you made fun of Jeffery Katzenberg. Do have problems with how he makes and produce animated movies by Disney and later Dreamworks or do think he's a good producer for both companies animated films?

That's ashame, I really would have liked to see it in 3-D a year from now and I thought you had the 2002 DVD. It was hard to get for my family(we traded our old broken video cattsete for it) . What was the reason you didn't get the original DVD?

How Hipped are you for The Beauty And The Beast Blu-ray release and what are your thoughts about next years 20th anniversary 3-D re-release in theaters? That Fellow: I'm really excited for the Blu-Ray release. I never got it on DVD, so it will be great to finally own it on disc format. I'm also looking forward to the 3-D release, but it's unfortunately been pushed back again to around 2012 or so.

i thought that beauty and the beast was brilliant
aladdin was cool
the lion king was SPECTACULAR!
i liked pocahontas and i love colors of the wind but i thought toy story was best film in 1995

I loved Beauty And The Beast, Aladdin and The Lion King. Those are great movies. Although I haven't seen The Lion King very much when I was young. However, I enjoyed Beauty and the Beast very much. And I loved Aladdin so much that I've watched the television series and it's sequels. As for The Lion King, I remember it and it's spin off, Timon and Pumbaa. Meh, Pocahontas. But I'll give it a shot.

@Cam- When he talks about Pocahontas' age being wrong, what he means is that the real Pocahontas was MUCH younger than Disney's version. In fact, just about every character underwent a massive change. I, for one, do not find it fair to judge a film off of accuracy even if it doesn't give itself a different title (Like Hercules and Pocahontas) but I was just clearing that up as you seem to have misinterpreted him.

"So, you talk about the less known Disney movies in small extent and you talk about the great classics in longer extent. Thanks for telling ous all every thing we already know about".
I dont meant to be mean but it gets kind of tiering & boring to hear about great classics all the time (that was why I liket your "Look Back at "Cat´s Dont Dance" wich I have not seen get). That Fellow: The reason for that is that there's simply more info out there on the more popular Disney films.

wai wai wai wahaaaaait, did I just hear you say they're going to 3dify Beauty and the Beast!?!? Thank God my original VHS hasn't died yet, because I do NOT want some cash in crap from Disney (also why I don't like them adding the extra songs, the movie was nominated for Best Picture WITHOUT them, so it doesn't need them "if it ain't broke, don't fix it").
Also, if I hear one more person keep praising The Lion King for the Hamlet connections, I am going to KILL somebody, seriously. The connections are sooooo stretched I don't even know why people keep saying it. Oh well, my comments towards The Lion King can be thrown back at me because I like Pocahontas waaaaaaaaayyyy more than The Lion King, despite all the major gripes given in your video (the age was wrong for Pocahontas? You don't say, oh what's that? Aurora was only 16 in Sleeping Beauty? Snow White was 12? Ariel herself admitted she was almost 16? Please, don't pull the age card when Disney has been promoting underage relationships for almost the entire 20th century)

I like the Timon and Pumbaa show, just not enough to be on the top 30 list. It's similar to Ren & Stimpy and Animaniacs in style, rather than in quality.

so you see "Timon & Pumbaa"(the series) as a mix between "Ren & Stimpy" and "Animaniacs" (two of your all time favorite cartoons) but "Timon & Pumbaa" did not make it to your top 30 list?
do you dont like the show?

I am a big fan of your videos but I most disagree with you & all disney fans,
but Aladdin is not a very good movie.
the Carachters seems to be blank and the storie is just to ordinary(your ordinary hero saves princess story). Aladdin is not a very good hero becose he just want to inprove his life and Jaffar is a good but not very complex villain(the samme gose for Gaston). the Lion King is my fav animated movie ever becose the story,songs & Carachters are so timeless and loverbull(mabe it helps that I am an animal lover).

I think Pocahontaus was very good despite Mel Gibson and it's inacuracy. Also, John smith was too much of a macho type in this adaptation.
