Yes, Pixar is owned by Disney, but their movies can count, too. I was talking about the ones that aren't made by Disney's animation studios.

Anything by Miyazaki (although a few were produced in conjunction with Disney):
Kiki's Delivery Service
Nausicaa
Laputa
Totaro
Howll's Moving Castle
Spirited Away
etc

The two Daria movies (and the entire 5 seasons of half-hour episodes):
Is It Fall Yet?
Is It College Yet?

Anything with Warner Bros: with Bugs Bunny, Daffy Duck, etc - I like the old WW2 cartoons
- most of them were short films, shown at the cinema before the main feature
- I especially like the parodies of great operas, like the Barber of Seville, and Wagner's Ring

Nice to know there's another fan of Don Bluth's animated films! Not forgetting Bakshi's! Iron Giant, Pagemaster, Swan Princess are classics, and I have yet to see either Cats Don't Dance or Thief and the Cobbler.

Royger have you ever seen Martin Rosen's animated adaptions of Watership Down and Plague Dogs?

Well, I was shocked at some of the violent scenes, but other than that, they were rather jaw dropping.

Japanese:
1. Akira
2. Paprika
3. Princess Mononoke
4. Royal Space Force: the Wings of Honneamise
5. Angel's Egg
6. Grave of the Fireflies
7. My Neighbor Totoro
8. Ghost in the Shell
9. Perfect Blue
10. Howl's Moving Castle
11. Night on the Galactic Railroad
12. Only Yesterday
13. Mind Game
14. Millennium Actress
15. Nausicaä of the Valley of the Wind

Neither Japanese nor Disney:
1. Waking Life
2. Who Framed Roger Rabbit (well, it's sort of Disney - besides a few cameo appearances from Disney characters, it's a Touchstone co-production)
3. Watership Down
4. Toy Story
5. The Plague Dogs

The non-Japanese list especially is incomplete. I watched loads of animated films a while back and still have a backlog of these to watch through...
