Top Toon Grossers

DreamWorks Animation's Kung Fu Panda is the #3 film of the year ...

With Wall-E coming in 8th ...

And the wild and crazy jungle animals from Mad 2 taking the 11th position.

All in all, a pretty fair year for U.S. based, theatrical animation, wouldn't you say?

Add On: A brief article about the highest flying moom pitchers is here. As a commenter says below, Narnia might have made the Top Ten, but the Mouse House bailed on the next installment of the epic anyway.

Add in all of the work done for the live-action movies Iron Man, Prince Caspian, and Mummy 3 and it was a dominant year for animators.

Can't forget Blue Sky's work on Horton either.

Also note that currently, 4 of the top 10 domestic movies of 2008 are animated (WALL-E at #5, Panda at #6, Madagascar 2 at #7, and Horton at #10.

Definitely not a bad year for animation.
