Most Popular Cartoons Ever Made – Top 5!

Many people grew up watching cartoons. Some of these cartoons were so popular that people transferred their affection for them onto their children and even grandchildren. Snow White, Bambi, 101 Dalmatians – these are just some of the popular cartoon classics.

In this post, we are going to mention some of the most popular cartoons that have been made for both children and adult populations. However, we find these to be rather corny for their completely basic and rather non-imaginative ideas. Is it possible to cover a silly story with high-class animation, amazing special effects, and first-class production? Keep on reading to discover what we are talking about.

Finding Nemo (2003)

Finding Nemo is a classic cartoon that outlines the importance of family. Two little fish, father, and son are separated after the son Nemo gets tangled in a fisherman’s web. Marlin, his dad, then starts an extensive search for his son. On his way, he meets different interesting sea creatures such as sharks, jellyfish, turtles and a fish named Dory that has short-term amnesia. The most overrated part of this story is that all living sea creatures join to find Nemo. However, this is indicative of the well-known message that no matter how far away home might be, you can always find your way back.

Toy Story (1995)

Toy Story was the first full-length Pixar cartoon that won an Oscar (and even had three nominations on top of that). The story is based around a boy whose vivid imagination turns toys alive. The plot revolves around his old favorite toy, Woody the cowboy, being replaced with the new toy, Buzz Light year, the astronaut. After they are forced to cooperate to find their way out of a seemingly impossible problem, they form an unbreakable friendship – another common motif. But don’t worry, there are more to come!

WALL-E (2008)

Here is a powerful future story that might not be that unrealistic at all. People have left the Earth because it became cluttered with corporate junk. WALL-E is a robot with the task to collect junk people left behind them700 years ago. He is completely alone on the Earth,
except for his cockroach pet. Actually, he is alone until the female robot EVE arrives on Earth with the mission to find life there. Of course, WALL-E falls in love with her – unhappily. There is a lot in this cartoon, from Matrix to Rob Roy. If you like Al Gore, this one is great for you.

Mulan (1998)

Mulan is an adaptation of a Chinese folk tale that speaks about a young woman who would love to replace her sick father on the battlefield because she knows that he will not survive the war. An otherwise interesting story falls apart when Mulan (who became a warrior meanwhile) falls in love with a war comrade. How convenient.

The Lion King (1994)

The Lion King is an animated cinematography classic that has marked the entire animated production of the 1990s. There is no need to elaborate on this one in too much detail.  Basically, the story speaks about loyalty, meaning everyone doing an honest job will be well compensated.
