Treasures that will always hold a special place in our hearts.

27 Forgotten Animated Movies We Used To Love

If you are a 90’s baby, chances are you grew up watching all sorts of animated movies, most of which were Disney treasures. Sure, everyone today remembers, “Tarzan,” “Lion King,” “Cinderella,” “The Little Mermaid,” “Aladdin,” and “Bambi,” but what about the other animated treasures we used to watch when we were toddlers? There are a lot of great animated movies, Disney and non-Disney, that we used to love, that are not as well known today.

If you have seen most, or all, of these forgotten animated movies, chances are your childhood was pretty amazing. If you have not seen any of these movies, I am sorry… but you really missed out.

1. “Dinosaur”

A combination of lemurs and dinosaurs, what can be better?

2. “FernGully”

This is why we must protect the rainforests; the fairies are depending on us!

3. “The Black Cauldron”

Probably one of the most forgotten Disney movies ever made, but probably one of the best.

4. “Once Upon a Forest”

Furling's racing to rescue a toddler raccoon poisoned by gas, it doesn't get any cuter!

5. “Thumbelina”

Our days were made when we discovered this classic is on Netflix.

6. “The Land Before Time”

Little Foot, Cera, Spike, Ducky, and Petrie, the best dinosaur friends ever.

7. “An American Tail”

Even mice migrate to new countries.

8. “The Last Unicorn”

One of my all-time-favorite movies ever made.

9. “All Dogs Go to Heaven”

Except for the evil ones...

10. “The Secret of NIMH”

There is a big difference between mice and rats...

11. “Rescuers Down Under”

When in Australia, try not to get involved with poachers, but if you do, it will make for an awesome adventure!

12. “Kiki’s Delivery Service”

We all wished we were witches in training after this Japanese animated fantasy film.

13. “Spirit: Stallion of the Cimarron”

One of the most underrated films of all times.

14. “The Swan Princess”

We all wanted to be Odette, admit it.

15. “Quest for Camelot”

We all wanted to become knights and go on a quest; a two-headed dragon friend wouldn't hurt either.

16. “The Elm-Chanted Forest”

Probably one of the weirdest films we loved as kids, especially when we re-watch it as adults.

17. “Balto”

Forever wanting a wolf-dog after watching this amazing movie.

18. “Antz”

Even ants want to make a difference in their society, and find true love.

19. “Chicken Run”

You almost felt bad about having chickens, almost.

20. “The Road to El Dorado”

Tulio and Miguel are my spirit animals.

21. The Animated "Lord of the Rings"

Yes, there was an animated series along with the movies you know and love today. Were they great quality movies? Probably not, but we did love them at the time.

22. “Watership Down”

This was, at times frightening, and all around heartbreaking…

23. “Happily Ever After”

Want to know what happened to Snow White after they defeat the evil queen?

24. “The Jungle King”

Another great animated film about a lion king trying to save his jungle kingdom.

25. “Pokémon the First Movie”

Man, that ending will get you every time.

26. "The Tale of Tillie's Dragon"

We all wished we had a Herman in our lives.

27. Barbie movies

If you didn't own any of these movies as a young girl, you're lying.

These may be forgotten movies from our time, but we will always remember how much we loved them as youngsters. Go on and watch your favorites and relive the magic all over again. Yes, yes we are in college, but that doesn't mean we aren't allowed to watch animated movies!

After a few months of self-quarantining, becoming suspicious of every cough, and blowing through masks like a medical school student, restrictions due to the pandemic are easing up a bit and businesses are warily reopening. While these public spaces may look the same on the outside, the way they function and operate is vastly different than a few months ago.

We've all been there. You see that super cute guy on your dating app of choice, his bio is funny, and then, the gut-wrenching feeling hits when you see their political views don't exactly line up with yours. He loves Trump, you can't stand him, or vice versa.

A lot of people will say you can get over politics, but I know from personal experience, as well as this survey, that politics play a huge role in whether a relationship will work or if we're even willing to swipe right on that profile.

With no sign of the pandemic going anywhere, brides and grooms who planned to be married in 2020 are forced to opt for plan B — if not plan C or D. While some are downsizing their in-person weddings to meet coronavirus guidelines and state restrictions, others are choosing to cancel theirs until further notice and some, well, they're embracing the virtual "I do."

A few weekends ago, I had the pleasure of attending a Zoom wedding for my friend and fellow editor and writer, Kristin Magaldi, and the short-but-sweet ceremony left me in happy tears (surprise surprise). In order to get the scoop on what exactly went into planning a virtual wedding, I asked Kristin to share her best tips so other couples know exactly how to have a Zoom wedding in case they're looking to lean into the video chat vows, too.

CBD Lip Balm Is The Calming Presence You Need In Your Life, Trust Me

I tried lip balm, sleep gummies, and an oil dropper from CBDistillery. Here's the final verdict.


CBD has been on making waves within the wellness space for the last few years. Generally related to the treatment of anxiety, insomnia, and chronic pain, it's growing easier to find small CBD companies who are making products specifically designed to fit your needs. As FDA rules for CBD production can be a little hazy, it's true that not all CBD products are created equally. That's why it's important to look into the manufacturing of whatever you're deciding to try, especially if you're new to taking CBD.

As someone who has tried a variety of CBD products — some victories, some failures — I was thrilled when CBDistillery sent me a package of their favorites. They included a Broad Spectrum CBD Oil Tincture, their Nighttime Gummies, and a CBD Lip Balm.

Kamala Harris Is The Biggest Hypocrite Of The #MeToo Movement

A vote for Joe Biden is a vote for Kamala Harris — and no one wants a hypocrite for a vice president.

Joe Biden just chose Kamala Harris to be his running mate against Donald Trump and Mike Pence in 2020. Now, for many reasons, this is hilarious as I think Biden just solidified his fate and gave the election to President Trump, but that's for another time.

Luxury Fashion Buys Your Bank Account Couldn’t Justify Till This Year’s Nordstrom Anniversary Sale

In case you needed another reason to get the Prada sunnies you've been eyeing all year.

Since I can remember first flipping through my older cousin's fashion magazines as an 8-year-old, I've always had several luxury items on my wish list of items I knew I'd never have, but loved to fantasize about.

As I grew into financial independence later in life, the list grew longer, but the ways in which I could toy with my grocery or travel budget for a month to make room for something I really wanted made the items on it more attainable. Even then, I will (virtually) visit an item online several times in the span of a year to test if I still like it months after eyeing it, and to see if by any chance it may have gone on sale.
