    I had understood that snow white WAS NOT a first animation movie. They simply claimed so to a reporter, who did not check their claim and published it as a fact.

    You guys should do a theory on the original EPCOT project. It's different from the park we know today and it's certainly something you guys could do a great video on

    I love you guys, and I've been quietly lurking for months, but how can you do a movie about the Disney Renaissance, specifically (and rightly) call out the songs, and NOT MAKE ONE MENTION OF HOWARD ASHMAN??? Maybe it's just because I write plays so of course I'm going to gravitate toward the playwright, but Ashman to me WAS the Disney Renaissance. He did the lyrics for Little Mermaid, Beauty and the Beast, and roughly half of Aladdin's songs before dying from AIDS complications when he was only 40. And he wrote the lyrics to my favorite Oliver and Company song, Once Upon a Time in New York City. (And Little Shop of Horrors, which isn't Disney but is still pretty awesome.) You can hear a difference in the Aladdin songs he wrote vs. Tim Rice (no offense to Rice, who did Lion King's lyrics, which, despite my Howard Ashman nerdfest, is still my favorite Disney movie). I have never liked the post-Lion King-Renaissance as much, and I attribute a lot of that to the songs losing some of the magic (though Mulan and Tarzan have some great ones). Anyway. I will return to lurking. But SIRIUSLY. Howard Ashman. Legend.

    This is actually a really cool video. And though I adore all of the movies from Disney's Dark Age (my personal favorite era) something happened in this video that I didn't expect. At 3:15, J says "I have a hard time believing you have heard of any of these." And he shows 5 obscure titles on screen, including Saludos Amigos, The Three Caballeros, Melody Time, Fun and Fancy Free, and Ichaod and Mister Toad.
    My grandmother was born in 1930 and my grandfather in 1923, and sadly they both passed away this summer. I used to watch these movies at their house. And the other day, when we were over there, I saw all 5 of them together on VHS. I actually have the whole collection now. Seeing them in this video here, being recognized and appreciated despite their obscurity means a lot to me, especially given what they truly mean.
    Animation at that time, by Walt Disney and Max Fleisher (another cartoonist I had a ton of movies from as a kid), was trying to bring joy to the world in a time that it really needed it. During the great depression. And to me, that's what finding these movies meant.
    I'm sorry for the long comment and if you made it to the end, thank you for reading! I hope your day's going great! Thank you SCB!!!

    The Rescuers Down Under is so underrated. I'd watch it for that scene with Joanna and the eggs alone.

    The dark age movies, or not dark age at all! Those are great movies! Maybe not as CLASSIC as some others, but dang, those are great movies! - I mean seriously, let’s take the Fox and the Hound for example - who here still cries during the Fox and the Hound? 43 years old, and I still do! Heck, even just THINKING of their echoing voices at the end chokes me up in a way that’s nostalgia! Sure, they didn’t earn a lot (and it’s sad that’s the MASSIVE majority of what they’re measured by), but they’re great stories!

    I think also missed in the ‘types of songs’ is the re-discovery song when the ‘hero’ becomes or sees who or where they were searching for 😃🌟🎶

    🌞 So appreciate your passion and fun with your videos; we have so much enjoyment owed to you! Best non-Disney animated movie though: ROAD TO ELDORADO!

    I learnt a while ago that when they were making the switch from traditional animation to computer generated, they told the disney studio in Florida to do whatever they wanted for a bit, which is how we got incredible, crazy movies like Big Hero 6 and Brave. Once the main studio was ready to start animating again, they closed the florida studio and laid off all the animators. Most of whom then got hired by Dreamworks, so make of that what you will.

    I've just been on a school camp and we had a karaoke night, I found under the sea from The Little Mermaid. Some people overlook this song and whilst I may not be the most gigantic Little Mermaid fan I really like this song. The demands to play this Disney song could probably burst ear drums. I do find it kind of ironic however that songs like how far ill go and let it go sort of got snubbed over Innocence.

    16:37 Yeah, hence why in recent years I've found myself purchasing the odd Disney soundtrack on CD, including Moana, the live-action Aladdin, and Mary Poppins Returns. The music is where it's truly at with Disney movies, both animated and live-action.

    Looking at the 10 videos in the that you consider part of the renaissance, I realize that half of them are have either been remade or are being remade into live action films. (Though I barely count Lion King for that.)
