This list of animated feature films compiles animated feature films from around the world and is organized alphabetically under the year of release (the year the completed film was first released to the public). Theatrical releases as well as made-for-TV (TV) and direct-to-video (V) movies of all types of animation are included. Currently the list doesn't recognize one release form from another. In order to qualify for this list, films must be "over 40 minutes long and have animation in at least 75% of their running time, or have at least 40 minutes of animation in total." This list chooses to use the AFI, AMPAS and BFI definitions of a feature film. For marionette films like Team America: World Police, or films featuring non-animated puppets, see Films featuring puppetry. Also, primarily live-action films with heavy use of special effects are not included.

Lists by decade

Lost/unfinished films

Pacala on the Moon
Păcală în Lună
Romania1920: the first Romanian animated movie created by the animator Aurel Petrescu, unfortunately lost.
The Adventures of PinocchioItaly1936: Was supposed to be Italy's first animated feature, but it was never finished and is now thought to be lost.
The Tale of the Priest and of His Workman Balda
Сказка о попе и о его работнике Балде (Skazka o pope i o yego rabotnike Balde)
USSR1933-36: Directed by Mikhail Tsekhanovsky, with music composed by Shostakovich. It would have been the USSR's first traditionally-animated feature film, but it was abandoned shortly before its completion due to various production difficulties. Most of the film was lost in WW2, and the 6-minute market scene stands alone as a classic of Russian animated films.
Hong Gil DongSouth Korea1967: South Korea's first animated feature (traditional animation). It was known that none of the prints of the film are known to exist in present time, but recently, two copies have been found in Japan. It was being displayed at the gallery, but no one have had noticed that it was considered lost since these days.
The Thief and the CobblerUS1960s-1990s: film was taken away from director Richard Williams and released as Arabian Knight and The Princess and the Cobbler; heavily edited versions with much of the already-filmed footage cut out. Unofficial restorations of the original film are available.
The WorksUS1970s-1980s: It was meant to be the first computer animated feature in the world, but was never completed.
Rock & RuleUS1984: In the USA, Rock & Rule showed up infrequently on HBO and in 1985, the film was aired on Canada's CBC. CBC wound up with the original print of the film, complete with the original voice actors, a few missing scenes, and a superior audio mix. The original negatives for this version were lost in a fire and the best remaining print source was used, so the quality is sometimes not too great and has imperfections.[citation needed]
Treasures under a mountain or The Hobbit / Сокровища под ГоройRussia1991: The Argus International Animation Studio begun to work on this animated movie, based on The Hobbit by J.R.R. Tolkien, but soon after the disselution of the Soviet Union, only six minutes from the movie was shot, and the movie never completed[1].
Train Arrival
Прибытие поезда (Pribytiye poyezda)
RussiaA watercolour-animated feature film begun in 1986 by Aleksandr Tatarskiy - part of the reason for the formation of PILOT Studio, the first private animation studio in the USSR. About 40 minutes were finished before hyper-inflation hit Russia in the late 1990s. The unfinished film was highly praised by several masters of Russian animation who saw it (including Fyodor Khitruk, Yuriy Norshteyn, Eduard Nazarov, Igor Kovalyov and others), before the film materials were lost to three consecutive floods in late 2005.[2][3]
