Fantastic
This is the high watermark of the golden age of Disney. It astonishes me that a simple kid's movie like this could have turned out so perfectly. It contains everything that makes a movie great.

Touching and fun.
Definitely the animated version of Hamlet. This is great for kids and all the family. Funny and amusing but with serious scenes and valuable lessons. One of Disney's best.
