Favorite Childhood Movies

Since Noah is on Spring Break I thought it would be cool to have him watch some of my favorite childhood movies. It prompted me to ask on Facebook and Twitter what people's favorite childhood movies are. I asked not to list Animated Disney movies because everyone loves those. I decided to make a list on my blog. I am not saying I would let Noah watch all of these at his age now. I will watch them with him when he is old enough depending on the movies.

Peter Pan with Mary Martin
Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory
Heavyweights
Camp NoWhere
Problem Child
Problem Child 2
Pete's Dragon (ok that is a Disney movie but not like Beauty and the Beast)
The Carebear Movie (he may not watch this one)
Strawberry Shortcake and Big Apple City (or this one)
Huck Finn
North
Radio Flyer
Man of the House with Jonathan Taylor Thomas
Stay Tuned
The Witching of Ben Wagoner
The Witches
The Chipmunk Adventure

That is all I can think of for now. I may update with more.

What are your favorite childhood movies?
