2 of the movies listed has some CGI, so I threw those out.

While Pinocchio has some amazing animation, I had to go with Fantasia. I was so far ahead of it's time and, today, is pretty amazing to watch.

The detail in the workshop in Pinocchio makes it the hands-down fav for me.

Re: Best Disney Hand Drawn Animated film

First choice was The Lion King, but like TomOpus said, it wasn't fully hand drawn. With that said, I pick Fantasia. There's so much going on in every scene of the film, plus the level of detail in each of those scenes was top notch.

My favorite Disney animated film of all time is still DUMBO, but in terms of achievement NOTHING can touch Fantasia. I'm still shocked at times that masterpiece is almost 70 years old.

"The Lion King" ...hands down, the most emotional and perfectly told story of Disney's arsenal. sure the classics of yesteryear are great, but i can't watch them over and over like i can with TLK.

It's Lady and the Tramp, which Disney has actually stated is their best animation work.

What, are you guys Amish? A bit of CGI doesn't mean a film can no longer be considered "hand drawn."

Absolutely! Can't believe this wasn't one of the choices. Each frame is a work of art. Got this from wikipedia:

Sleeping Beauty was the first animated feature to be photographed in the Technirama widescreen process. The film was presented in Super Technirama 70 and 6-channel stereophonic sound in first-run engagements. Only one other animated film, Disney's The Black Cauldron, was shot in Technirama.

The best disney movie is Fantasia, but my favorite is The Jungle Book, so I voted for that.

I've always been partial to Pinocchio myself, so that's what I'm going with.

Re: Best Disney Hand Drawn Animated film

My favorite has always been Alice in Wonderland, but I think The Lion King is still the pinnacle of Disney animated storytelling. I mean, you're basically doing the greatest of the Shakespearean plays ("Hamlet") with big cats and this has the greatest start-to-finish soundtrack of any Disney feature, bar none. From the opening yell to the Hans Zimmer score that swells as Simba takes his place atop Pride Rock, there's absolutely nothing to complain about here.
