Quick poll

Hey all,

Just a quick question. We’re doing our Top Five for this week. It’s Top Five Musicals. Would you include cartoons in the list? I’m thinking mostly of Disney’s animated movies, from Snow White to The Lion King. Would you consider them musicals? I can see both arguments for their inclusion and exclusion, so I’ll leave it down to the Culchies.

And also, if you feel there are any musicals that should be included, leave a comment below. Cheers. D&L

    Yes yes and yes!

  2. oscar says:

    Include South Park: Bigger Longer and Uncut.
    Best. Musical. Ever.

  3. I’m gonna say no cause I think you should do like Top Five Disney Movies, ooh pick the Lion King

  4. Peter says:

    I think no – musical cartoons are in their own genre (or Sub genre) in my mind

  5. Will Knott says:

    I’m saying no as the risk would be that all the movies are Disney ones. Live action and animation should be done separately.

    The crossovers like Mary Poppins (isn’t Bedknobs and Broomsticks not a musical?) should be put in the live action category.

    Are there enough non-Disney animated musicals to have their own section?

  6. Disney musicals are for the most part just as good as many stage musicals, but for simplicity, I say leave them out.
    Some, such as The Lion King are performed on stage so could be included.

    Whatever you do though, don’t put in more than two Andrew Lloyd Webber shows.

    My vote goes to Wicked or Sunset Boulevard!

  7. K8 says:

    Little Shop of Horrors (the 1986 version o’ course!)

  8. Beauty and the Beast
    South Park: Bigger, Longer, Uncut
    The Nightmare Before Christmas
    The Little Mermaid
    Pink Floyd: The Wall
    The Jungle Book
    Yellow Submarine

    I don’t see how they could be left out, unless you do the top 5 musicals that aren’t animated kinda thingy…

  9. Maxi Cane says:

    Little Shop of Horrors and West Side Story.

  10. Will Knott says:

    I’m for live action…

    Non animated favourites…
    Xanadu (personal favourite is the “forget about the blues / backseat mashup, and that was written in the 70s)
    Gypsy (You got to have a gimmick)
    The Wiz (A Michael Jackson movie, it WILL be on the telly over christmas)
    8 Women (or 8 Femmes to be more accurate, murder can be tuneful)
    High Society (“True Love”, “Who Wants to be a Millionaire”, “Well did you evah (what a swell party this is)
    Muppet’s Christmas Carol (just because)


    Cabaret (“Tomorrow belongs to me” is actually terrifying)
    Fiddler on the Roof
    Funny Face (not to be confused with Funny Girl)
    Guys and Dolls
    Hello Dolly (so good it even has its own wordpress plugin)
    High School Musical (x3)
    Holiday Inn (White Christmas)
    Little Shop of Horrors
    Mary Poppins (except for that one scene)
    Meet Me in Saint Louis (responsible for “Have yourself a merry little christmas”)
    My Fair Lady
    On The Town
    Parapluies de Cherbourg
    Phantom of the Opera (the movie is actually different from the stage show)
    Rent (I own a copy and have still to watch it)
    Singing In the Rain
    West Side Story (Look for the 28 days later style trailer re-cut)
    The Wizard of Oz
    and to be weird, “Everyone says I love you” the musical done by Woody Allen.

    and an honourable mention which I’m not too sure counts, “Moulin Rouge”

    Do live action and animation separately.
    (Having said that, I love A Nightmare Before Christmas)

  11. Will Knott says:

    I left out Rocky Horror Picture Show (bad musical, but so much fun)
    Come to think of it, does “The Blues Brothers” count too (“R.E.S.P.E.C.T., Everybody)

  12. ekilko says:

    I agree with most of above if you are talking about stage musicals then that’s a separate category. Don’t forget the Disney ones have stage versions. The cartoon versions should definitely be included in top five musical movies.


  13. Niall says:

    Simply because if anyone asked me to name my favourite musical I would never even think to include animated movies I’m saying No.

  14. Jezze says:

    Does Who Framed Roger Rabbit count as a musical?

    Do It Right (Jessica Rabbit)

    Merry Go Round Breakdown (Eddie Valliant uses it against the Toon Patrol and Roger uses it to entertain drunk patrons)

    End song (All the Toons)
