When I think about movies that I can always go back and rewatch, the ones that instantly come to mind are Disney movies. Many of them are timeless classics you can watch whenever you need a little pick-me-up. But I guess that's the spirit of Disney, huh? It aims to please and entertain its audience base with its many amazing films.

I mean, from the '80s to the mid-2000s, no other company was competing with Disney when it came to its movies. And I'm counting Disney Channel Original Movies (DCOMS) too. I'm sorry, but it's just the truth. How could you compete with movies like Hercules, The Parent Trap, Mulan, Flubber, Smart House, A Bug's Life, Inspector Gadget, Toy Story, etc.? It was a losing game from the start for other companies. I know I'm overexaggerating, but you get what I mean. Disney makes great content, and that's just a fact.

I'm sure you have your favorite Disney movies like me, but there are some that people always seem to forget about when discussing some of the best Disney movies. These Disney films are very entertaining to watch, so it baffles me that they aren't as popular as others.

Are you curious to know which Disney movies I'm talking about? If so, all you have to do is continue reading!

Oliver & Company

Oliver & Company is easily one of my top 10 favorite Disney movies, and it truly shocks me that not many people know about this classic animated film. I've asked so many people if they have ever heard of Oliver & Company, and they always say no. It feels like I'm the only person on this Earth who has ever watched this movie. But hopefully, you'll want to watch it after I share what it's about.

It's a 1988 animated musical adventure movie loosely based on the book Oliver Twist by Charles Dickens. Set in New York City, the film follows a small orphaned kitten named Oliver who joins a gang of homeless dogs that survive by stealing from others. But Oliver soon finds his life forever changed when he becomes adopted by a wealthy young girl and her family. However, this peaceful arrangement doesn't last long when a loanshark comes looking for his money.

Zenon: Girl of the 21st Century

Please tell me you watched Zenon: Girl of the 21st Century. While I wouldn't say this movie isn't known by a lot of people, it just doesn't get brought up a lot when talks about the best Disney movies are had. In fact, Disney rarely even shows reruns of it on Disney Channel. That should tell you something. It's like they want to bury this movie and act like it never happened. It's truly disappointing, especially since it's one of their most successful DCOMs, with there being two sequels.

Zenon: Girl of the 21st Century is a 1999 Disney movie based on the novel of the same name by Marilyn Sadler and Roger Bollen. Everything takes place in the future. The year 2049 to be exact. 13 year old Zenon Kar, who lives with her family on a space station, gets in trouble and then is sent to live with her aunt on Earth. Once she makes it to Earth, she has a hard time fitting in at school and with her peers. Then, to make matters worse, she learns that there's impending trouble headed for her home in space. Now, Zenon must find a way to save her people before it is too late.

Don't Look Under the Bed

Don't Look Under the Bed is one of the Disney Channel Original Movies that absolutely scared me as a kid, but now that I'm older, I can really appreciate it. I feel like this is one of the most underrated Disney movies, and it sucks because it's actually really good. It was also really different than other Disney movies at the time.

Released in 1999, Don't Look Under the Bed follows a no-nonsense teen named Frances McCausland who doesn't believe in anything supernatural. Well, that's until she encounters the boogeyman under her bed. It all begins when Frances is framed for the mischievous pranks going around her neighborhood. Her young brother's imaginary friend Larry Houdini tells her she's being framed by the boogeyman and that he can help her. Although she has a hard time believing him, she's fed up with being framed, so she eventually teams up with Larry to banish the boogeyman for good.

A Goofy Movie

One of the best animated Disney movies would have to be A Goofy Movie, and I can't stress this enough. Based on the incredible animated series Goof Troop, A Goofy Movie takes place three years after the events of the show. It's officially summer, and Max has made plans with his crush Roxanne to go to a party together. But his father, Goofy, throws a wrench in his plans when he forces him to go on a cross-country fishing trip. Although the trip doesn't start off right, Goofy and Max eventually grow closer and strengthen their bond.

Look, I know Tarzan is a big Disney movie and that many people know about it. But I don't think it gets enough love as it should. When people talk about the best animated Disney movies, it just doesn't seem like Tarzan gets brought up enough in conversations. So, I'm here to give this iconic movie its flowers.

Tarzan is a 1999 animated adventure film based on the book Tarzan of the Apes by Edgar Rice Burroughs. It follows an orphaned human boy named Tarzan who is adopted and raised by a family of gorillas in the remote African wilderness. For the longest, Tarzan doesn't know that he's a human. That's until he becomes an adult and meets a beautiful woman named Jane, who he realizes has similar features to himself. Tarzan eventually falls in love with Jane but becomes troubled with trying to decide where he really belongs.

Sky High

Disney was onto something when they made the superhero film Sky High, and I'm still mad that a sequel was never made. It's a 2005 movie following a young teen boy named Will Stronghold, the son of the greatest superheroes on the planet. However, Will doesn't know if he has powers of his own just yet. He's sent to a school in the sky where teenage superheroes attend, otherwise known as Sky High, and eventually, his superpowers kick in. But he doesn't get to have fun for long because a mysterious villain shows up to get revenge on his family.

Get a Clue

Lindsay Lohan and Brenda Song were two of Disney's main stars in the early to mid-2000s, so Get a Clue was bound to be a hit. In this teen mystery comedy, Lohan and Song star as two fashion-conscious best friends who work together to solve a case when their teacher goes missing. Overall, Get a Clue is an enjoyable movie to watch and easily one of Lohan and Song's best films. Like Sky High, I wish we could've gotten a sequel. I would've loved to see what new mystery Lexy and Jen would've taken on.
