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!

For as long as I can remember, I have been listening to The Beatles. Every year, my mom would appropriately blast “Birthday” on anyone’s birthday. I knew all of the words to “Back In The U.S.S.R” by the time I was 5 (Even though I had no idea what or where the U.S.S.R was). I grew up with John, Paul, George, and Ringo instead Justin, JC, Joey, Chris and Lance (I had to google N*SYNC to remember their names). The highlight of my short life was Paul McCartney in concert twice. I’m not someone to “fangirl” but those days I fangirled hard. The music of The Beatles has gotten me through everything. Their songs have brought me more joy, peace, and comfort. I can listen to them in any situation and find what I need. Here are the best lyrics from The Beatles for every and any occasion.

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.

I can't say "thank you" enough to express how grateful I am for you coming into my life. You have made such a huge impact on my life. I would not be the person I am today without you and I know that you will keep inspiring me to become an even better version of myself.

Waitlisted for a College Class? Here's What to Do!

Dealing with the inevitable realities of college life.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.
