Favorite obscure Disney movie?

And by obscure, I mean ones that received bad reviews or are not really represented in the parks, like the poor wallflowers of the Disney Features world silly

Mine has to be 'Oliver and Company.' I have been hearing the songs a lot on my Disney Pandora station, and I just love the '80s NYC vibe biggrin Plus I really have a soft spot for stray pets!

I would love to hear anyone else's!

My favorite is The Rescuers. I loved Bernard and Bianca. I don't remember if it was a hit movie or not. As a kid I watched it a lot. I liked Pete's Dragon also. It has one of my favorite songs in it (Candle on the Water).

SO much love here for Darby O'Gill. A young crooning Sean Connery will win my vote every time.

There are some great ones here! I absolutely love Robin Hood too! Both of the Rescuers films are really good too! To be honest, I don't think I've ever seen Song of the South eek if I have, it was when I was really young... So I am going to rent it from the library today! mickey

Those sing alongs were great. The Christmas one was really good.

Anybody buy the Disney yule log DVD? It's trippy.

Love the Rescuers, Oliver & Company, Bednobs & Broomsticks and Aristocats. Watch all of them pretty regularly. Never heard of some of the others mentioned, will look out Song of the South

I've got a few. Robin Hood, Hercules (That one seems to get a lot of dislikes but I enjoy it.), Newsies (It was a flop at the time but it got a cult following later on and a Broadway show not too long ago.) , the Mighty Ducks trilogy and Hunchback of Notre Dame.

Also watching Sword in the Stone right now with DD2, is that obscure too. DS loves Robin Hood though not watched it in a while and both DDs like Hunchback of Notre Dame, so I reckon we watch a lot of the less well known Disney films in this house.

My favorite obscure one is "Child of Glass". It was like a scary movie for kids. It took place in the south, so maybe that's part of the reason I like Port Orleans so much? I also like the Apple Dumpling Gang.

I was actually able to purchase a copy of "Song of the South" due to there being a Uncle Remus museum near us (which at one time was the only placed Disney actually agreed to let a company produce them and sell them at). I was able to snag it at a thrift store near us because someone had purchased it there.

To my knowledge, Song of South isn't sold in the States and you can get it in other countries.
