Thumbelina, based on Hans Christian Andersen’s book of the same name, follows a tiny girl named Thumbelina (Jodi Benson) and the Prince of the fairies Cornelius (Gary Imhoff) as they try to find their way back to each other. Thumbelina’s voice cast includes Gilbert Gottfried, Carol Channing, John Hurt, and Charo.
Why It’s underrated: Many of you reading this probably went “what the heck is Thumbelina?” And there lies the issue, Thumbelina doesn’t receive nearly as much attention as other animated films created in the 90s. This is probably due to the bad reviews, box office failure, and not the best soundtrack. Also Thumbelina is very bizarre in comparison to Cinderella, but if you can accept the strangeness, then Thumbelina is one enjoyable ride from start to finish. Personally, it’s one of those movies I’ve seen far too many times and still enjoy its ridiculous plot.
