Blue's Big Musical Movie (for ages 2 to 6) Ray Charles ordering pizza is a lesson in making music magical, and and when he sings a well written song, he's a tough act to follow. Here he dedicates this magic to the kids! Don't miss it!

Charlotte's Web (for ages 4 and up) Based on E. B. White's book, a spider with a nurturing personality helps Wilbur with just the lessons he needs to become a star and not a pile of Oscar Meyer Sausages.

Chicka Chicka Boom Boom (for ages 3 to 5) A better-than-average musical way to teach kids their ABCs.

Chitty Chitty Bang Bang (for ages 4 and up) Catchy music and dreams coming true.

Chrysanthemum . . . and More Kevin Henkes Stories (for ages 5 to 8) A collection of animated stories with Meryl Streep narrating. Successful strategies in the plight to achieve acceptance...

Clifford Tries His Best (for ages 2 to 7) Clifford, the Big Red Dog is always bigger than life. The late John Ritter imparted a convincing sense of authority to Clifford's voice making it perfectly clear that HE was the true head of the household!.

Doctor Dolittle (for ages 4 and up) If Mr. Ed can talk to people, than why should it seem so strange that a veterinarian can talk to animals? (And of course understand them as well.) Lots of fun!

Dr. Seuss's How the Grinch Stole Christmas! (for ages 3 and up) Grinches have been working on zapping Christmas since Dr. Seuss pen him into our universe in 1965. This 1966 animated film with Boris Karloff spoiling everyone's Christmas is certainly one of the best, as is Jim Carrey's 2000 version.

Dr. Seuss's The Cat in the Hat (for ages 3 and up) It's been redone and the original is still probably the best.

Dumbo (for ages 4 and up) There is something about elephants that makes them great children story characters. This 1941 tale is no exception! Excellent musical score. Kids of all ages with big ears will like this one!

E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial (for ages 5 and up) Steven Spielberg's masterpiece was always a touching story, but the newly remastered/altered version makes it even better for younger audiences.

The Fantasia Anthology (all ages) Through the magical compositions of Beethoven and Bach, Fantasia creates a magical world where the music can be seen as well.

Finding Nemo (for ages 6 and up) Something fishy and fantastically funny about this film. And forgetful Ellen DeGeneres helps us remember how to laugh real hard!.

Goodnight Moon and Other Sleepytime Tales (for ages 1 to 5) All star roster of vocal and acting talent: Susan Sarandon narrates along side performances by Natalie Cole and Billy Crystal make it a must see!

Happily Ever After: Fairy Tales for Every Child (for ages 3 and up) HBO's TV series adds multicultural slant and humor to these classic fairy tales. The talent of Whoopi Goldberg and Denzel Washington are the icing on the cake.

Harry the Dirty Dog . . . and More Terrific Tales (for ages 2 to 8) These refreshing Weston Woods tales of the four-legged variety often feel like books, in that a lot of the details are left to the viewer's imagination.

The Incredible Adventures of Wallace & Gromit (for ages 6 and up) Nick Park's compelling clay characters, Wallace and his loyal hound, Gromit, teach us the benefits of marching to the beat of your own special drum.

The Lion King (for ages 6 and up) A kung fu movie plot: avenging a father's death, set in the jungle. Lots of challenges: re-claiming a rightful throne. Elton John's music complement the animation well.

The Little Mermaid (for ages 6 and up) This score may have contributed greatly to Disney's comeback at the time. West Indian style music, great composition and vocals make the music alone worth the price of the movie!

Mary Poppins (for ages 4 and up) The sheer joy and wonder of Mary Poppins gives the musical its timeless appeal. One could not find a more perfect person to play the role of Mary Poppins than Julie Andrews. Delivering her lines and songs in a truly magical way, she nannies her way into our hearts in a most delightful way.

Monsters, Inc. (for ages 5 and up) It's reassuring to believe that "big, scary" monsters are actually afraid of us. Just as The Grinch and Little Orphan Annie, this movie's sub-plot deals with corruptive nature of greed.

Peanuts Classic Holiday Collection (for ages 3 and up) Charles Schulz' creations and characters, Charlie Brown and Linus, like Chestnuts roasting on a open fire and pumpkin carving have become true holiday traditions.

Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs (for ages 4 and up) Based on the Grimm's fairy tale this Disney classic may be just a we bit scary for younger children. And, like so many other shows from its era, there are some politically unpopular dregs to contend with. But it's still quite entertaining.

The Sound of Music (for ages 6 and up) The political side of the plot will likely need a few more years to understand, but the music, the compositions, Julie Andrews's always magical performances will leave the kids singing "Doe a Deer" for sure!.

Totally Teletubbies (for ages 1 to 3) If you have trouble understanding this movie, your kids can explain it to you. That's what makes it special!

Thomas the Tank Engine and Friends: Platinum Collection (for ages 2 to 7) Trains have been known to captivate children of all ages! And for all of us who have found themselves running down the street singing Chucka-chucka-woo-woo, this will be an enjoyable movie. Grab some Good & Plenty and enjoy!

Toy Story 2 (for ages 5 and up) Pixar cut its teeth on animated film during the course of the production of this movie. And Disney added their own expertise in story development and the result was the birth of 3D animated movie-making. A historical event that deserves all the hype!

VeggieTales: Heroes of the Bible--Lions, Shepherds, and Queens (Oh My!) (for ages 3 and up) Sunday School meets Saturday Fun in this entertaining tale!

Where the Wild Things Are (for ages 3 to 5) Maurice Sendak's classics made into several short animated presentations.

Frank Baum, with fantasy elements.[1] It features Judy Garland, Ray Bolger, Jack Haley, Bert Lahr and Frank Morgan, with Billie Burke, Margaret Hamilton, Charles Grapewin, Clara Blandick and the Singer Midgets as the Munchkins. Notable in its use of special effects, use of Technicolor, fantasy storytelling and unusual characters. Judy Garland's voice singing "Somewhere over the Rainbow" is memorable. The story

Yellow Submarine (for ages 4 and up) Blue Meanies -- music-hating creatures who invade Pepperland -- are no match for the music of Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band. You don't have to be old enough to be a Beatle fan to enjoy this one!
