Snow White & the Seven Dwarfs
D: David Hand (1937) 84m


One of the brightest and best of the Disney Studio's animated classics, this fairy tale from the Brothers Grimm follows Snow White's blossoming into womanhood. There's the evil queen who is green with envy of her stepdaughter's beauty, the seven dwarfs who Snow White hides out with and - of course - Prince Charming.

Fantasia
D: James Algar & Samuel Armstrong (1940) 120m


A collection of eight animated interpretations of works of classical music. Famous for both its ingenious animation and groundbreaking use of stereophonic sound, the film also benefits from the outstanding music provided by Leopold Stokowski & the Philadelphia Orchestra. 'The Sorcerer's Apprentice' is a fantasy favourite.

Alice In Wonderland
D: Geronimi, Luske & Jackson (1951) 75m


The Disney team was simply too sugary-sweet in 1951 to do full justice to Lewis Carroll's surreal classic. Alice stumbles into a bizarre Wonderland and meets the White Rabbit and the Mad Hatter. The 1950 UK/France live-action production (suppressed by the Disney studio) is probably closer to the mark if you can find a copy.

The Sword in the Stone
D: Wolfgang Reitherman (1963) 79m


Magical Oscar-nominated adventure that has all the trademarks of the best Disney animations. Based on the first chapter of T.H. White's novel The Once and Future King, the film faithfully chronicles the adventures of a young boy (Wart) who is destined to become Arthur, King of the Britons. The underlying theme of the value of a good education unfolds in his encounters with Merlin.

The Little Mermaid
D: Ron Clements and John Musker (1989) 85m


Based on the Hans Christian Andersen fairytale, this movie re-established Disney's reputation as the world's top animated family feature studio. A teenage mermaid falls in love with a human prince and does a deal with an evil sea witch to try and make things work out. Andersen probably turned in his grave when the ending was devised, but audiences lapped it up.

Full of terrific songs (including the Oscar winning title song), delightful humour and sublime messages - this movie reminded a lot of us just how magical an animated classic can be.
