Family movie night is a time for the household to get together and relax in front of the TV. But depending on the ages and likes of your particular household, finding something that will be appropriate and enjoyable for everyone can be somewhat of a daunting task. Luckily, there are a ton of movies out there that will appeal to just about anyone. See below for some of our most favorite cartoon movies:

Mickey’s Christmas Carol (1983)
Charles Dickens’ classic tale shortened to under a half an hour, starring Mickey Mouse as Bob Cratchit and Scrooge McDuck as well, Ebenezer Scrooge, among many others recognizable Disney characters.
Full of rich comedy for both the little ones and big ones, Shrek’s crusade to save his swamp (which turns into a side quest to save Princess Fiona), it’s sometimes unclear what age range the movie was actually written for.
The Lady and the Tramp (1955)
It’s the classic unrequited love story that we’ve seen time and time again. Except now it’s between a pampered cocker spaniel and a streetwise mutt.
Wreck-It Ralph (2012)

The Secret Life of Pets (2016)
Don’t we all wonder what it is our pets are up when we’re out of the house? Well, if you think the answer is “no good,” you are probably right.
There are, of course, dozens of other great cartoon movies to choose from for family movie night. From the extremely popular ones, like 1994’s The Lion King, the Frozen franchise, and the Toy Story movies, to the just popular ones like Up, Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs, and Kung Fu Panda, there is certainly not only something out there for everyone, but enough fun cartoon movies to make every night a family movie night, if you so choose!
