Since this is one of many nights where there is nothing good on TV I dug through all my DVDs and found Toby Tyler. I love these old Disney movies! I have always said there are two types of Disney movies. Disney movies and Mr. Walt Disney's movies. I could sit and watch his movies any time! Toby Tyler, Pollyanna, The Absent Minded Professor, with Fred McMurray. I could go on. Anybody agree with me?

Haven't seen Toby Tyler in years! I love Pollyanna, Old Yeller, The Computer Who Wore Tennis Shoes ... and the Parent Trap -- the original movie, not the lousy remake. Vintage Disney is good stuff. Modern Disney, not so much. Poor Walt must be spinning in his grave.

I just watched Polyanna a few weeks ago! Love it every time! I feel the same way about Old Yeller. My favorite Disney movie is Beauty and the Beast and to be honest I was very pleased with Tangled. Though the animation style differed from traditional Disney, the story line and music was more classic Disney. I guess that's what made me enjoy it. It is actually my daughter's favorite.

I'm such a kid at heart, and will educate my daughter in the ways of classic Disney!

I couldn't agree more. I love Toby Tyler, Swiss Family Robinson, Old Yeller ,the Original "Parent Trap "and many more.
I started showing them to my kids about 10 years ago, so I've raised a whole new crop of fans.

Some of the timeless by Walt Disney we still watch:
"Bedknobs and Broomsticks"
"The Story of Robin Hood and his Merrie Men"
"The Legend of Sleepy Hollow (1949)
"Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs"
"Cinderella"

Still young at heart...

I like Aladdin. Robin Williams made that movie a hit I think. But, enrike, I'm talking about movies that Walt Disney made back in the 50s and 60s.
http://www.disneymovieslist.com/disney-movies.asp Scroll down to around 1968 or so are probably the last ones Walt had anything to do with since he died in 1966. I say had anything to do with because back then movies like this took a long time to produce. I remember when the movie The Black Hole came out. That raised eyebrows all over the place because it was the first "Disney" film that was rated PG.

You know what...I think it's important for people to stay young at heart. I know so many people who can't stand to watch Disney movies, old (classic) or new (Renaissance Disney), because they are not "intellectually stimulating".

Really? People need to get a grip. I appreciate hearing others chime in about needing a bit of Disney in their lives!
