According the the OFCS it is.
The Online Film Critics Society (OFCS), the international association of the leading Internet-based cinema journalists, is celebrating the glory of animation with its new list honoring its choices of the Top 100 Animated Features of All Time. At the top of the list, according a vote of the 138 reviewers of the OFCS, is the 1995 production “Toy Story.”
Following “Toy Story” in the Top 10 sector of the Animated Features list is “Fantasia” (1940), “Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs” (1937), Toy Story 2 (1999), The Iron Giant (1999), Beauty and the Beast (1991), “The Nightmare Before Christmas” (1993), “Who Framed Roger Rabbit” (1988), South Park: Bigger, Longer & Uncut (1999) and “Spirited Away” (2002).
With a reminder list of more than 350 feature films to choose from (the list did not include animated short films), spanning the years from the 1926 silent film “The Adventures of Prince Achmed” to last November’s release Treasure Planet, the society invited its accredited writers to consider some of the finest films of this celebrated genre. “Looking at the list compiled by our writers, it’s evident what an impact the advances and varieties of animation had on people in the last 15 years,” says Erik Childress, editor of eFilmCritic.com and a member of the OFCS Governing Committee. “While films such as “Snow White” and “Fantasia” may have been the blueprint for animation, the recent films of Pixar, Mayazaki and Trey Parker & Matt Stone have reconfigured how we view animated films and have expanded their artistic, emotional and satiric potential to new heights.”
