100 Favorite Animated Films

this is my ever-evolving and regularly updated list of my favorite animated films -
limited to a selection of 100 titles

As 100 is a very small number, many films cannot be included. But on the positive side, this limitation hopefully forces me to rethink the list and my tastes as new films get added while others have to make way.

PS: Recommendations of your favorite stuff are very welcome!

PPS: I'll also include films that are (only) partially animated if I think it's enough to qualify them for me as films motivated or organized sufficiently around the idea of animation. Famous examples would be works like WHO FRAMED ROGER RABBIT, COOL WORLD, or 300.
