Princess and the Frog

I have always loved classic Disney animation, and have missed it as Pixar became the new face of Disney. Yes, some of my favorite movies are Wall-E and Finding Nemo, but the hand-drawn element had disappeared. I would watch movies like The Little Mermaid and Beauty & the Beast staring in awe as the gorgeous images came to life, knowing how much time had been put into each individual cel. Now with Disney's newest movie it's all back! And in addition, they are introducing the first african-american Disney princess! (and did i mention, Oprah Winfrey provides the voice for her mother?!)

Just look at this beautiful art!

It makes me want to go home and watch The Little Mermaid, Oliver & Company, Beauty & the Beast and Lady & the Tramp (a FEW of my favorites)! What was your favorite class animation films?
