Believe it or not, the Gallopin Gaucho http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DnjSVSykNsA
is one of my favs because it's an obscure historical jewel.
The FIRST mickey mouse cartoon STARTED. (Steamboat Willie was the first produced.)
Gallopin Gaucho has mickey drinking, smoking, and dueling, so he expresses his character
to the fullest. Of course I also adore the quality of their fully animated features that made Disney famous.

'The Lion King'. I've seen it about 9 times. Always felt it was kinda sorta MY Disney flick, as most of the classics were already established at that point ('Bambi', 'Jungle Book', 'Snow White', 'Dumbo', 'Little Mermaid') and this was the one movie I was there to witness the 'arrival' of, so to speak. And it was the last big 2D Disney movie that starred an all-animal cast. Never cared for 'Aladdin' or 'Mulan'.

Some of my favorite 2D animated Disney films are:

Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs
Alice in Wonderland
Sleeping Beauty
The Little Mermaid
Beauty and the Beast
The Hunchback of Notre Dame

Some of my favorite non-2D animated Disney films are:

The Nightmare Before Christmas
Toy Story

But there are some that I haven't seen in a while that I should take a second look at, so both lists might be subject to change.

Lion King
The stageshow raped the film and gave it a "peoplefied" feel. I want to strange the director.

'The Little Mermaid', I have a mad voice crush on Jodi Benson (Ariel). She could read the phone book to me for all I care <3<3<3<3

'Beauty and the Beast' is a close second, overall better film and most attractive heroine (Marry me Belle, but I may commit ear infidelity), but it is unfairly compared to Jodi Benson.

Third is 'Sleeping Beauty', for best heroine name (Aurora), prettiest princess, and for the fact that Prince Philip forever set unreachable standards for boys everywhere in the art of manliness.

My favorite is Aladdin!

But don't you guys think 'the lilltle mermaid' is kind of a methaphor for life as an aspie?

That just hit me the other day when I was listening to 'part of your world'... made me sad too.


Lyrics:
ARIEL
(Maybe he's right. Maybe there is something the matter with me.
I just don't see how a world that makes such wonderful things could be bad.)

Look at this stuff
Isn't it neat?
Wouldn't you think my collection's complete?
Wouldn't you think I'm the girl
The girl who has everything?
Look at this trove
Treasures untold
How many wonders can one cavern hold?
Looking around here you think
Sure, she's got everything
I've got gadgets and gizmos a-plenty
I've got whozits and whatzits galore
You want thingamabobs?
I've got twenty!
But who cares?
No big deal
I want more

I wanna be where the people are
I wanna see, wanna see them dancin'
Walking around on those - what do you call 'em?
Oh - feet!

Flippin' your fins, you don't get too far
Legs are required for jumping, dancing
Strolling along down a - what's that word again?
Street

Up where they walk, up where they run
Up where they stay all day in the sun
Wanderin' free - wish I could be
Part of that world

What would I give if I could live out of these waters?
What would I pay to spend a day warm on the sand?
Bet'cha on land they understand
That they don't reprimand their daughters
Proper women sick of swimmin'
Ready to stand

And ready to know what the people know
Ask 'em my questions and get some answers
What's a fire and why does it - what's the word?
Burn?

When's it my turn?
Wouldn't I love, love to explore that world up above?
Out of the sea
Wish I could be
Part of that world

I don't usually watch Disney movies anymore, but I absolutely love the movie Flight of the Navigator, and have loved it since I was a kid in the 80's.

That reminds me of another movie I associate with.
The Great Mouse Detective
The protagonist, Basil of Bakersreet is meticulous, logic-oriented,
has peculiar mannerisms, uses a diversely unorthodox vocabulary,
is well-intentioned and crafty, yet irritable, bitter, and awkward,
and has no ability to woe women. ... all traits I have in common.

So while my family despises it (for reasons unknown to me)
it's practically the only Disney movie I both
appreciate AND relate to.

Though I've never been obsessed with The Little Mermaid, I've always felt an inexplicable connection to "Part of Your World". Now I understand why. Thank you for bringing that up; I would have never figured that out myself. :D
