Need suggestions!

I am hoping I can get some help from all of you! I am wanting to introduce my kidlets to some of the old Disney Classics that we grew up watching. I was at Blockbuster last night and the gentleman in front of me was renting "The Apple Dumpling Gang" Instantly a flood of memories came to mind about this classic! Tim Conway and Don Knotts give such a hilarious performance, just thinking about the two of them makes me snicker, the cute Bradley Orphans finding the gold nugget, I love this movie... not to mention my high school sweetheart and I shared a kiss during this movie. My kidlets already love "The Gnome Mobile," So I can imagine that they will love all the other classics.
Here is where you come in...if you can think of any Disney Classics that my kidlets might like, or that you like, please leave a comment listing them, and maybe a brief description of the movie. I will add it to the list that you will soon be seeing on the Blog. As my kidlets watch the movies, I will let you know whether or not they liked them.
Thanks in advance.

The first movies that came to mind for me are: "The Incredible Mr. Limpet" also with Don Knott's. "Chitty, Chitty, Bang, Bang" and of course "Mary Poppins". As a child, I had the Mary Poppins album memorized, and sang along with a pretty fine dance routine, to it. Which reminds me... I think even more, my favorite movie suggestion is: "The Muppet Movie"! I bought this album for Jared when he was a kid and memorized all the songs on it too! Let me know if you ever get this one and I'll come watch it with you!

Thanks Val!! I am totally changing the name of my list to "Kids Movie Suggestions." Because I too thought of "The Incredible Mr. Limpet" and "Chitty Chitty Bang Bang." But they aren't Disney movies (I don't think) so I didn't put them on the list, but they are such great movies!! AND..."The Muppet Movie!" I LOVE IT.

So, any good kid/family movie. A good kid movie doesn't have to be a Disney movie!

Don Knotts did so many great family movies.

Well, my kids LOVE Swiss Family Robinson (it's the pirates, really), Pollyanna, The Parent Trap and Summer Magic. Can you tell we're big Haley Mills fans? I also recently introduced them to Your A Good Man Charlie Brown (because they love the Broadway soundtrack) and they really liked it. I also just introduced them to Pete's Dragon yesterday, and Sheely, the seven year old, was literally screaming with delight. The music in that show is SO fun.
