    (keep in mind, I am a 17 dude):

    Movies: Fantasia (both original and 2000,what can I say?), all the real Disney-Pixar ones--not the trash they pass of as "Disney-Pixar" now (Peter Pan, Lion King, Toy Story, etc.), any Miyazaki film

    Naruto, Avatar the Last Airbender, Pokemon, Yu-Gi-Oh!, Code Geass

    Also, just to mention, Anime and Manga are huge parts of my childhood (and are part of my adolescence)

    Paranoia Agent was a great series.

    Movie-wise, Spirited Away was halfway-decent. And I'm a sucker for older Disney films: 101 Dalmatians, Peter Pan, Fantasia etc. Beauty and the Beast was absolutely gorgeous as well.

    Yeah, I thought it was brilliant. Had me laughing throughout.

    End of Evangelion also deserves a mention, I think. Though one would have to watch the whole series to really understand it.

    Yes, honorable mention to Roger Rabbit for its humor and its seamless integration of real and animated actors. A really enjoyable film.

    I don't watch animated movies (not talking about movies with CGI like Jurassic Park). I find them irritating. I also don't like movies with animals displaying anthropic (or whatever is the word) behavior. I only watch movies with real people and CGI effects for animals and scenes from the past which don't exist today, or something futuristic. Animated movies are just glorified cartoons.

    Since you mentioned song, I should write my first feelings of songs of The Little Mermaid. The night I was watching The Little Mermaid I started to have goose bump when Sebastian ( crab) started to sing to creat a mood for Ariel and prince to kiss. I can't forget how sweet and romantic the song was.

    Wow, no mention of Bugs here? The humor and creativity were, and still are, unrivaled. The "Do you want to shoot me now, or wait till you get home?" skit still makes me laugh till I cry.

    I agree completely. Bugs Bunny cartoons made my Saturday mornings, when I wasn't playing tennis. I still laugh watching them!

    Probably the Jungle Book.

    I loved it as a child and watching it again as an adult with my girl I really appreciate the production values/material/songs etc...

    I like it too. Me and my close ones enjoy it ,especially the kids go nuts over the scene with Mowgli and Baloo eating and dancing/singing.

    DragonBall Z all the way for me, no animated TV show ever got me that into it and invested in the characters.

    Traditional: Snow White (1937), Fantasia (1940) and the Charlie Browns (GreatPumpkin/Thanksgiving/Christmas).

    Off-Broadway: Fritz the Cat (1972), a heart-warming, fun-for-the-whole-family tale about an anthropomorphic kitty, set in New York City circa 1965. The film's opening vis-a-vis the current pep rallies in Zuccotti Park: another example of life imitating art.

    I wonder how many season Yu-gi-oh (TV series) had.
    I was watching season 5 collection last night and I was amazed about imagination of the creator of the program. The season 5 shows were telling us all the begining of the duel how it started and how millenium items were created. It was awe...........some.
