Best Movies of All Time + top 25


After I watched the 2007 documentary The Pixar Story yesterday, I had the sudden desire to craft a list of my favorite Pixar characters of all time. So that's exactly what I did. Below are my twenty-five favorite animated characters from Pixar films. With each, I've given their first film appearance as well as the person who gave the character a voice. I've also included some of my favorite quotations for each (speaking) character for your reading pleasure. If you've been reading my stuff for a while, you'll recognize some of these characters from my list of favorite animated characters of all time. So without any further delay, enjoy!
