I think Beauty and the Beast and Mulan take the top spots, followed by The Little Mermaid. Then The Lion King, Tarzan and Aladdin. Pocahontas, Hunchback and Hercules take the bottom spots, though I give Pocahontas credit for the best animation and Hunchback for a really impressive score.
Cool. Great list. Thanks for sharing!
