Do you like the animated Disney movies?

Yeah. I even purchase a ticket when I have not kid in tow. However, they do tend to present women in a none to positive tone.

Yeah, they're good once in a while. I usually watch one when I'm really bored at home...

I like certain ones. I really like the Emperor's New Groove and the Toy Story movies. Also, Cinderella, Bambi, the Little Mermaid, the Fox and the Hound, the Lion King, and Aladdin. But the newer ones like Pocahontas I don't like so much.

I don't like cartoons and for years I thought of animated movies as a long cartoon. But these latest Disney movies don't seem to be. "A Bug's Life" was really cute and "Shrek" looks darling.

Yeah-it's the non-animated ones i'm not too crazy about.

Not the newest ones like "The Emperors New Groove" that movie was just stupid, but I like the ones that I watched when I was a kid like "Aladdin" and "The Lion King."

Yeah, they're pretty cool. Good for the kiddies.

Some of them. "The Emperor's New Groove", "A Goofy Movie" and "The Lion King" are my favs. Special prize to "Groove" for being a Disney film that's actually funny.

I think they're made really well, but they aren't my first or second choice in a movie.

Yes, and my favorite one is "The Little Mermaid"

Melodi, 19

Yup...Cinderella is my favorite. Although, I'd have to say that the non-animated Cinderella (Ever After) was really good too!

I love Disney movies however I don't like that a character has to die in every single film. What is up with that? Are we trying to teach kids about death or something? I usually just fast forward through the death scenes on video tapes. Disney however does make the most wonderful films available.

Stephanie, 25

Yes.

Not really. I really like Alice In Wonderland because I liked the surreal imagery. It made me think that the reason Alice dreamt all that strange stuff was because she was high. But I've found the other ones I've seen to be too cutesy and highly patronising. I can appreciate the great artwork though.

Shanna, 16

Some of them. I don't like the ones that distort history (Pocahontas) or take too many liberties with a novel (The Hunchback of Notre Dame), but for the most part I like them. I remember watching many of them as a babysitter when I was younger. (I do acknowledge that the Disney movie Hunchback might have inspired kids to go read the book.)

Yeah, I guess. It would be nice, though, if every film wasn't about a female in distress who is rescued by the handsome "prince".

Jennifer, 19

No, way too much formula and complete disrespect for the stories they're based on.

i love the older animated disney movies, the newer ones aren't quite as good.

Becky, 16

That is a bit too general a question for me. I would need to take them on a movie by movie basis. There are some which I really love - Aladin, Lion King. Some which I like and watch occassionally - Fantasia, Cinderella. And some which I just dont like - Little Mermaid. I guess I view them like any movie -there will be some good and some bad and some in between.

Deb

Yes, actually, I do. Don't know why. I especially love a lot of the older fairy tale ones, like Sleeping Beauty and Snow White. I'm not sure why.

Johanna, 18
OK   USA

Yes I like the animated animal movies from Disney. They are cute and funny and very relaxing as I watch them I think of my childhood days where I had no problems and can just sit back and relax and enjoy them.

Marci, 56

Some of them. Little mermaid was great, Beauty and the beast was great, Hunchback of notre dame was pretty good. Pocahantas wasnt horrible, city of el dorado was pretty lame. Ive heard hercules was rotten.

Talia, 23

Many of them are delightful. Having young grandchildren gives me a great excuse to watch them.

Jane, 60

, OR   USA

I like all the ones I remember watching. It's been awhile, though. If I ever get ridiculously rich, I'll collect them all on dvd. Otherwise, they're just movies to me.

Firelady, 23
Dallas

uhm. YES.

Eric, 19

I enjoy the movies, I'm disturbed at the heavily commercialized tie-ins. I think a Disney cartoon should be an event in a child's life rather than a part of the child's daily world.

Jill, 60

I'll frequently take a pass on Disney, but see almost all the Dreamworks movies.
