The greatest ‘70s cartoon movies are an interesting mix of fun, family-friendly entertainment like The Aristocats - the charming story of four cats who must find their way home to Paris after a kidnapping gone awry - along with slightly heavier fare, like Watership Down. Released in 1978, Watership Down tells the tale of a group of rabbits engaged in a struggle to survive. The film has its lighter moments, but is pervaded by themes of tyranny, freedom, reason, and emotion. It was the first animated film presented in Dolby surround sound.
In the ‘70s, J.R.R. Tolkien’s high fantasy epic narrative classic, The Lord of the Rings, was also adapted into an animated movies.
