Here are some more underrated or little know animated films.



A little boy named Tim realizes that stars are going missing. He tries to find out what’s happening and stumbles into the world of Nocturna, where a “Cat Shepard” begrudgingly agrees to help him. Beautifully creative way to explain all the weird things happening at night. This feels like French animation – and it is (in this case French-Spanish) – so the animation is super smooth and flowing. When you’re not gawping at the wonderful animation, the story is enough to keep you entertained. Some people might not like the very stylized character designs though (people have told me it bugs them :shrug:).


Arthur Christmas

Arthur Christmas

Christmas is almost over, but one kid didn’t get her present. So neurotic Arthur, Grandsanta, Rudolf and an over-enthusiastic elf set out to deliver it before Christmas morning. To me, this is one of the best Christmas movies I’ve ever seen. It’s a great, very human story with characters that many people can relate to. Because it is Aardman, you know most of the humour is in the dialogue, so you might have to watch the movie a few times before you get all of the jokes. The rest of the humour takes place in things you don’t notice the first time around – keep your eyes on Rudolf, he does a lot of stuff I didn’t see until I watched the movie a few times.


Big Friendly Giant

BFG (Big Friendly Giant)

A little orphan girl is saved by a giant who creates dreams. When the two of them discover that other giants are kidnapping and eating children, they decide to put a stop to it (in a rather ridiculous way). This movie is based on the book by Roald Dahl so it’s a bit odd and ridiculous at times, but I enjoyed it nonetheless.


Animal Farm

Animal Farm (1954)

The book animated! The story is about animals who take over their boss’ (the farmer’s) farm and attempt to make a living for themselves. I think even if you hadn’t read the book or knew Animal Farm was about the Russian Revolution, the message of this story comes through loud and clear (although it is slightly different from the book). The animation is good at times, and I always believe a good story will come through even if the art isn’t considered good by today’s standards. Boxer’s end was tragic in the book but seeing it animated really tore at my heart :(



Brave Little Toaster

Brave Little Toaster

Although the idea is rather silly (appliances trying to find their way back to their owner?!) I still love this movie because of how the story is told and how the characters interact with each other. The characters don’t get along with each other for almost half of the movie’s running time, but slowly they start to become friendlier, starting with Toaster being nicer to Blanky. What I also love about this movie is how dark it really is – the characters are in constant fight for “survival”. The movie’s production story is interesting as well, as it seems it was an independent film created with some ex-Disney employees after Disney rejected the idea (click here to find out more…. The Brave Little Toaster is probably more appealing to an older audience, but as it was released in 1987, people didn’t take it seriously and that’s probably why it’s fallen through the cracks. (Well, many people still don’t take animated movies seriously and believe if it’s animated it’s meant for children. But I’ll rant about that later.)

:star: Do you know of any underrated or little known animated films? Please share! :star:
