WASHINGTON – “Frozen” just won Best Animated Film at the Academy Awards.

Pharrell Williams still has many of us singing “Happy” from “Despicable Me 2.”

“The Lego Movie” is still big at the box office, grossing $334 million worldwide.

And “Mr. Peabody and Sherman” opens today, about a genius dog who adopts a human son, invents a time machine and travels to various points in history, from Ancient Egypt to the French Revolution to the Italian Renaissance.

With so much animation on the brain, it has us asking a question that is sure to ignite passionate debate: what are the greatest animated movies of all time?
