Time Out London has compiled a list of what they consider the 50 best animated films of all time, with commentary from Terry Gilliam.  It ranges from the positive:

[On South Park: Bigger, Longer, and Uncut – #9] ‘These are my children! They’re brilliant. With the film, I was convinced they couldn’t pull it off because I just didn’t think it would sustain for 90 minutes. But of course it does, and it’s just brilliant. They’ve been able to maintain their outrageousness, their awfulness. They’re uncompromising, that’s why I love them.’

To the not as positive:

[On 1978’s animated Lord of the Rings – #36] ‘I hated it. Bakshi was a strange one who took some of my favourite material and never managed pull it off completely on screen, He always seemed to be more ambitious than the money allowed. And the end result was, to me, horrible.’

Here’s the full list:
