12. Muppet Treasure Island (1996)

Jim Henson Productions / Walt Disney Studios Motion Pictures

While The Muppet Christmas Carol (1992) may be slightly better, it's not really made for year-round viewing. Besides, this has Tim Curry!

35. Ratatouille (2007)

Walt Disney Studios / Pixar

It's a shame that Ratatouille doesn't get as much attention as some of the other Pixar movies: it's as enjoyable to watch as that omelette would be to eat.

72. The Empire Strikes Back (1980)

Lucasfilm

...or any of the other Star Wars movies. Honestly, if you love them, adding them to this list is somewhat redundant - you've probably already shown them to your kids!
