* ''WesternAnimation/CatsDontDance'' is a charming movie about a cat trying to get big in Hollywood. With sweet, lovable characters and catchy musical numbers (by RandyNewman), it's a great family film. Plus, the choreography was done by Gene Kelly, and Lauren Faust (the creator of ''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic'') was one of the animators. Unfortunately, the movie flopped because Warner Brothers didn't really support it, and it has ([[CultClassic mostly]]) fallen into obscurity.

** ''Disney/{{Hercules}}'' gets a lot of flack for being extremely SadlyMythtaken and perpetuating EverybodyHatesHades. That said, it's got a great soundtrack, the most unique character designs in any Disney movie (courtesy of [[TheWall Gerald Scarfe]]), and the ever-hilarious [[LaughablyEvil Ha]][[AffablyEvil des]]. I mean, they managed to make Danny [=DeVito=] a good singer for the film. Without Autotune.

* ''Westernanimation/ThePowerpuffGirlsMovie'' definitely deserves more credits then it got. What makes this movie great is how they took such a childfriendly and brightcolored kid show and turned it into such DarkerAndEdgier levels and adding more realism so that it completly [[{{Deconstruction}} deconstructs]] the show and the characters in it. The movie plays out almost like ''Film/BatmanBegins'': the city is so corrupt and crime-infested that it's basically Hell on Earth, which inspires Professor Utonium to create the girls in order to bring some change... only it fails miserably due the girls' tag game causing massive damage to the city and them being outcasts, completly averting the HeroInsurance for once. The greatest part of the movie is how it transformed the [[LargeHam large hamed]] IneffectualSympatheticVillain Mojo Jojo to a hardcore, silver-tongued, badass MagnificentBastard who is downright ''ruthless''. It's just sad that it was released the same year as ''Film/TheLordOfTheRings: the Two Towers'' and the ''Film/ScoobyDoo'' movie were. If not maybe it would had earned more recogniztion.

* The 2013 CGI film "The House Of Magic" (Thunder and the house of magic) is a surprisingly decent and cute film which stars an orange male cat who gets adopted by a magician and he later hangs out with a group of sentient toys (At least when the magician is around). The film can currently be watched on Netflix.

* ''WesternAnimation/RaggedyAnnAndAndyAMusicalAdventure'' bombed when it was released in theaters in 1977, partly because it had been so expensive to make but also because many parents found it boring and/or thought it went on too long. A common complaint was that the movie had too many songs (over a dozen of them!), but the fact is that at least some of these songs are very good. Plus, how can you not like an animated film that inspired an MTV video (for TomPetty's "Runnin' Down a Dream")?

* ''WesternAnimation/ItsSuchABeautifulDay is a heartbreaking, beautiful, and strangely underrated film by the creator of ''{{WesternAnimation/Rejected}}'', Creator/DonHerdtzfelt. Unfortunately, it recently was removed from Netflix. You can pay 3 dollars for it on Youtube. Similarly, there is WesternAnimation/WorldOfTomorrow, which is thankfully on Netflix.

* Anything made by the Georgian company Qartuli Pilmi, the people who made ''Animation/GogonaDaTovlisGunda''. A good chunk of their animated shorts have a special charm to them that made them popular in Soviet Georgia... but since [[NoExportForYou they were never released outside of Georgia]], only a small amount of non-Georgians are expected to be familiar with at least one of the company's works.

* ''WesternAnimation/ArthurChristmas'': OK, the title isn't promising, but it's actually smart, funny, heartwarming-without-being-treacly, beautifully animated, and thoroughly entertaining, featuring wonderful voice work by Creator/JamesMcAvoy, Creator/BillNighy, Creator/JimBroadbent, and Creator/HughLaurie. Perhaps it'll catch on in Christmases of the future.

* {{Franchise/Barbie}} movies need so much more love, particularly ''[[WesternAnimation/BarbieInThePrincessAndThePauper Barbie as the Princess and the Pauper]]'' and ''[[WesternAnimation/BarbieInTheTwelveDancingPrincesses Barbie in the Twelve Dancing Princesses]]''. So many awesome role models for girls.

You'd think they'd be utterly ridiculous, being, well, films with Barbie as the lead, but the storytelling is on par with Creator/{{Disney}} and Creator/{{Pixar}} and the animation gets more and more gorgeous as time passes. So many awesome role models for girls.

** ''WesternAnimation/MickeyDonaldGoofyTheThreeMusketeers''. A great direct-to-DVD feature lost amid the wave of "cheapquels" and compilation movies Disney releases. A solidly written film starring the stars of the ClassicDisneyShorts. Very awesome...yet very underrated... though thankfully Square-Enix saw fit to give it representation in ''VideoGame/KingdomHearts3D''!
