I am a huge animation and anime fan, I love Disney, Warner Bros theatrical shorts, CG films (Pixar and others,) puppets (and Muppets,) claymation and stop-motion animation, superhero shows, prime-time TV shows like The Simpsons & Southpark, and so on...

Here are my links to my animation:

CG films
Animation & Puppetry
TV Animation
Super Hero shows (and video games)

I have Punky Brewster Season 1, which includes some of the animated show.
I also have the Toxic Avenger boxset, which includes the Toxic Crusaders movie and a couple of episodes...

Recently, I picked up the theatrical 2-disc version of Hellboy, even though I have the director's cut 3-disc, because there are some Gerald McBoing Boing cartoons on it, as well as the animated "The Tell-Tale Heart." As far as I know, The Tell-Tale Heart is ONLY available on this DVD. Sadly, the Gerald cartoons are all repeated on the Gerald McBoing Boing DVD, which also includes another Gerald cartoon. However, that cartoon is also on Dr. Seuss' The 5,000 Fingers of Dr. T...

=====

In addition to Disney and Pixar, I also particularly enjoy:
Aardman Studios (Wallace & Gromit, Flushed Away)
Tim Burton's stuff
Sid & Marty Krofft stuff
some of the Don Bluth films (Anastasia, The Secret of Nimh, All Dogs go to Heaven)
The Warner Bros. theatrical shorts
Superhero movies and TV shows (DC: Batman & Superman, Marvel: X-Men, Spiderman, etc.)
The Simpsons & Futurama
Southpark
Family Guy & American Dad
Animaniacs
Hanna Barbera stuff
Garfield
Dungeons & Dragons
The Nintendo stuff (Zelda, Captain N, Mario Bros., etc.)
Ice Age
Monster House
Over the Hedge
Robots
Shrek
Cool World
The Critic
Dilbert
The Tick
Dinosaurs
The Iron Giant
The Prince of Egypt
Spirit: Stallion of the Cimmaron
Team America: World Police
Transformers: the Movie (and TV shows)
Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles

Unless you're not a fan of Peanuts, I'd strongly recommend the <i>Peanuts Classic Holiday Collection</i>, which serves up 3 hours of mostly grade-A animation and, after price drops and standard discounts, is nearly reasonably priced.

Paramount really needs to do an all-encompassing Peanuts set that is at a customer-friendly price. Then again, not all Peanuts films are created equal and how many people would want to own it all?

My list is basically like yours; I don't think I have anything new to suggest.

All of the Aardman Animation movies and shorts
Monster House
The Iron Giant
Charlotte's Web
Tiny Toon Adventures: How I Spent My Vacation
Shrek
FernGully: The Last Rainforest
Ice Age
The Land before Time and other Don Bluth movies like The Secret of NIMH and All Dogs Go to Heaven
Once upon a Forest
The Pagemaster
The Nightmare before Christmas and The Corpse Bride
The Princess and the Goblin
The Swan Princess

Other Dreamworks movies are pretty good, like Antz and Shrek 2. The Road to el Dorado and Sinbad: Legend of the Seven Seas were decent.

I have been waiting to find that at a good price... I see it every now and then on sale, right when I have no money! :(

I grew up with the Peanuts comic strip, and the various specials on TV. I probably saw a lot of them on the first airing. I think I have read a large percentage of the early strips, up to at least the 80s (after that, it was just what was in the paper, when we got it.) The Peanuts Complete Collection hardback books are on my wishlist, but I have a LOT of other stuff on there right now, as well...

I would probably be one of the people who would want to own all the Peanuts films... However, if they started cranking out more and more slop that looked and sounded horrible, I would call it quits... I haven't seen some of the really recent stuff, so I don't know how bad they have become!

I saw a "Snoopy's Doghouse" collection, possibly from the UK (Amazon UK? ) I'd love to get it at some point, but I don't even know if they are still available..

Some recommendations from the Escapay:

Happily Ever After - yes, the much-maligned hardly-enjoyable-if-you're-over-5-years-old "sequel" to Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs. What can I say? I actually still have a soft spot for it and enjoy watching it every couple of months. It's recently been re-released as a CE with a documentary about Filmation (the studios), and some other goodies.

A Claymation Christmas - one of my favorite Christmas specials as a kid, it featured two dinosaurs trying to figure out the name of a Christmas carol, whilst being visited by many a guest-claymation-characters (such as geese, pigs, even the California Raisins!). It's got some really cool claymation sequences set to Christmas carols (two of my favorites are "Joy to the World", and the Walrus-and-Penguins set "Hark! The Herald Angels Sing"). It's available on DVD, but I rarely see it in stores, so you might want to order it online.

Gulliver's Travels - from Max Fleischer and Paramount in 1939, it was their answer to Disney's Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs. The movie plays out much like a really really long short cartoon, with the Lilliputians looking more like the demented cousins of the Dwarfs, and Prince David and Princess Glory having operatic singing voices. But it's got a lot of charming moments, and the song "Faithful, Forever" is (IMO) more romantic than "I'm Wishing"/"One Song"/"Some Day My Prince Will Come". If you can find it, the 60th Anniversary Edition is the best DVD for it.

As for television shows, I'd have to say...

Hey, Arnold!

If you like Animaniacs than you would probably like Freakazoid as it is done by the same people, but you would have to download the episodes online as they are not on DVD (isohunt has them I think). I would also recomend The Swan Princess (but get the widescreen Region 2 DVD).

wow, I have that hah. It was part of a series of random animated movies my best friend and I bought cause we rememberd them from when we were kids and we felt like being nostalgic. Anyway I saw it at suncoast, and I'm going to be honest, by picking up the DVD and looking at the cover, I instantly felt embarrassed lol. So I made my best friend buy it lol. But it was nice watching it again and it wasn't as bad as I thought it was going to be.

Anyways Some of My favorites are:

Little Nemo(not to be confused with Finding Nemo)
Once Upon a Forest
The Swan Princess
Rock-a-doodle
Thumbelina
Ferngully the last rainforest
American Tale
American Tale 2: Fieval go's west

And these last four...which probably no one else even heard of lol. But they are really enjoyable movies haven't seen them in years though, but from what I remember their good movies.

The Magic Voyage(really rare)
Serendipity the pink dragon(hard to find)
A Journey through Fairyland(really rare, similar to Fantasia)
Sea Prince and the Fire Chid(also really rare, but pretty enjoyable)

Iron Giant

I am working on the DC Animated Universe stuff, it is coming in to place slowly but surely. I watched the Batman animated series on TV when it first aired...

Iron Giant is another on my shortlist to get soon.

I'll give descriptions of the first two because they are very rare to find.

Plague Dogs
The story about 2 dogs who were used in a labratory for cruel experiments, escape and are chased over the English countryside by everyone from civilians to the military. It was a highly realistic form of animation. The dogs were drawn anatomically correct and did dog things, but without really being amusing. It was more like watching a live action movie at times. The movie is often described as a drama/horror. There is death, violence, blood, etc. Its not a movie for children.

Flight of Dragons
A story about a modern day man brought into the world of magic and dragons. He is the only one who can save them because he has one foot in logic and one foot in magic. A magic spell goes wrong and the man is accidently merged with a young dragon and he is forced to continue his quest and fight all while learning how to be a dragon.

Batman Beyond: Return of the Joker
The Last Unicorn


And all the others were pretty much already mentioned

Don't think I've seen this one mentioned: <a href="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Triplets_of_belleville">The Triplets of Belleville</a>. Very unusual, nominated for a Best Animated Feature Academy Award. Written and directed by French animator Sylvain Chomet & co-produced by French, Belgian, and Canadian companies---but don't worry if you can't understand even un peu of the French language because the dialgoue is virtually nonexistent! Honestly, I can't recall the last film I saw that relied so heavily on moving pictures for its storytelling...

I won't spoil the story, but I will let you know that the opening period-feel musical number has nothing to do with the plot except to introduce the Triplets and theit big hit song---if you can get through the madness of the Django Reinhart & Josephine Baker caricatures, things become markedly less surreal.
