Steve Box's Best Bets:
"I'm not sure that ten animated films would be my first choice if I was marooned on a desert island, but if it were, these films would provide me with an amazing range of emotions and keep re-proving to me the possibilities of animated filmmaking."
- The Big Snit by Richard Condie. "Actually any Richard Condie film... He's a genius."
- Creature Comforts by Nick Park. "It doesn't matter how many times I see this film or that I know the director. It's a modern masterpiece."
- Knick Knack by John Lasseter. "Perfect use of computer animation is John Lasseter's hallmark, the right tool for the right job. Toy Story is also superb."
- The Snowman (TVC). "That bit...when they take off!!"
- Tom and Jerry in The Cat Concerto (MGM). "Apart from being timed to its perfection, I find it slightly surreal compared to other Tom and Jerry films."
- Neighbors by Norman McLaren. "A great moral tale told with unbelievable imagination and humor."
- A Christmas Carol by Richard Williams. "The feel of the animation, the design of the characters and the color scheme perfectly suit this grotesque Dickens classic. It also reminds me of my childhood."
- The Clangers (any episode) by Oliver Postgate and Peter Firmin. "Gentle, imaginative and surreal with the most character-full voice-over ever from Oliver Postgate."
- Lucas the Ear of Corn by Bill Plympton. "I find the naiveté of the animation and the low quality of this film combined with Bill Plympton's sense of humor totally hilarious."
- Alice by Jan Svankmajer. "Epic, unique and inspiring. A true master of animation."
