Disney’s, The Legend of Sleepy Hollow: I’ve been in love with cartoons since I can remember. Disney was always one of the best places to go for that (not anymore unfortunately). This film goes back to the 1940’s, with classic, lovable, Disney animation from the golden age. Sleepy Hollow is the old story of Ichabod Crane and the headless horseman. It starts off witty and colorful, before it comes to a tragic end. The ending chase is horrifying by the way, even now I get creeped out by it; it’s THAT good.It’s the Great Pumpkin Charlie Brown: If you didn’t watch Peanuts growing up, you had no childhood. This is just one of the many Charlie Brown cartoons on the endless list. There’s really nothing unique to this one that’s different than any other Peanuts cartoon, but it’s on here for the same reason: it’s such a feel-good movie. Even if it does have one of the most out-there ideas ever, everything about Peanuts is so youthful and innocent. I can watch this over and over again and never get tired of it.

Halloweentown: Once upon a time Disney channel original movies were watchable, and this would be in the top five favorites EVER. It’s such a breath of imagination. I mean the plot sounds pretty basic, but visually it’s captivating. You can watch one scene multiple times, and each time, still notice something new. It’s simply admirable. The second one was entertaining but not as good, the third one was painful; they could never get out of the shadow of its original.
