The 100 best animated movies of all time

Animated movies are among the top-grossing Hollywood films today. Though many of these movies are primarily aimed at children, studios ensure that they are easily enjoyed by kids and adults alike. In recent years, movies such as “Frozen,” “Toy Story 3” and “Finding Nemo” have grossed more than $400 million at the domestic box office, becoming some of the most successful movies of all time.

And audiences show few signs of animation fatigue. In 2004, “The Incredibles” grossed about $328 million in inflation-adjusted dollars at the U.S. box office. A sequel to the film, “Incredibles 2,” is slated for a June 15 release, 14 years later, and is already on track to become the most successful animated movie ever in pre-sale tickets.

Of course, ticket sales do not always indicate the overall quality of a film. 24/7 Wall Street has determined the best animated movies of all time — both foreign and domestic — by using online audience and critic ratings.
