Hulu has content available in every genre, including animation from Western countries. These are some of the best-known animated movies you can watch on the streaming service.

Best Animated Movies to Watch on Hulu

Hulu has a large selection of movies and TV shows to stream, but it doesn't have a lot of Western animated films. Not only is the collection not very big, but it also doesn't have a lot of well-known names.

Hulu doesn't give up on animation fans completely. The service has enough high-quality movies to keep someone entertained. 

Hulu also has a huge collection of animated TV shows. Danny Phantom, Futurama, Regular Show, and Animaniacs are a few examples. These are the best-animated movies on Hulu right now. Anyone who wants to watch some good animation shouldn't miss them.

The Croods 2: A New Age (2020)

"The Croods" sequel will continue the story of the cave-dwelling family. It has better reviews than its predecessor. It will feature 100% more Peter Dinklage and Kelly Marie Tran. 

The titular family must adapt to modern life in vibrant computer-generated environments. Prehistoric monsters, depending on species and conditions, can be entertaining or dangerous.

Shrek & Shrek 2 (2001-2004)

By far, Shrek and Shrek 2 are the most famous animated movies on Hulu. They helped DreamWorks become a major studio that could sometimes compete with Disney. Shrek is full of fairy tale whimsy and mocks "and they lived ever after." It turns these well-known stories on their heads and, as a result, hits comedic gold.

Both movies are funny, but Shrek 2 has less weird and offensive humor, making it better. The fact that they feel like movies from the early 2000s is part of what makes them interesting to watch.

Rio (2011)

A domesticated exotic bird known as Blu is the only male Spix's macaw left on the planet. He is the last of his kind. He is the only one who can offer his species real hope for the future. 

Blu's life would be easier if "Rio" involved flying him to Brazil and meeting a defiant female macaw. Instead, Blu has to deal with embarrassing situations like when someone tried to kidnap him but failed and when he failed.

Shaun The Sheep Movie (2015-2019)

Shaun the Sheep Movie, a spin-off of Wallace and Gromit, is one movie that blows your mind with how great it is. Knowing the source material enhances the movie, but anyone can watch it without it. 

The Shaun the Sheep Movie is funny, simple, cute, and worth watching more than once. It also has excellent stop-motion animation.

This movie will be a hit with kids and may surprise adults. A great time may be had by all with Shaun the Sheep Movie.

The Addams Family (2019)

The Addams Family have been an iconic part of American culture since their debut in the pages of The New Yorker. In the 1960s, they began appearing on television, and in the 1990s, they made their debut on the big screen. The spooky, quirky, and wacky family received a CGI makeover in 2019. 

We liked how the movie used computer animation from the year 2020. But the original designs from the 1930s. (If you believe that "The Addams Family" is copying Tim Burton's work, you have a few things backward.) If you're looking for something lovely and creepy, "The Addams Family" is the perfect show to watch.

Batman & Bill (2017)

"Batman & Bill" is not a real animated movie. Instead, it is a live-action documentary with animated parts. But it should be in the book because of how important the subject is. After all, the Caped Crusader does more than his fair share to add to the history of animation.

Marc Tyler Nobleman is a writer and Batman fan who spends a lot of time and energy on the character. In this documentary, the unsettling truth about Batman's authorship is revealed. Anyone who likes superhero culture in any form should watch it. People thought that Bob Kane was the only one who thought of Batman. Without Bill Finger's art, the Caped Crusader would look less interesting.

Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs (2009)

"Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs," Chris Miller and Phil Lord's first full-length movie. It got its name from a children's book that came out in 1978. The movie then buys a ticket for the crazy train and rides it to Bakersville.

Flint Lockwood, played by Bill Hader, is a good-natured but depressed mad scientist. Hader's pipes help him to build a machine that makes hamburgers, spaghetti, etc. fall from the sky. In the real world, a new idea like this would cause an environmental disaster right away, but in Lockwood's world, everything works out just fine... or does it?

Aside from the crazy story, the voice acting is great. In the animated movie "Cloudy," the voices of Bruce Campbell and Mr. T can live together. Even if their combined greatness could destroy reality in a live-action movie.

Trolls World Tour (2020)

Our culture says kids must learn colors, numbers, and animal sounds early on. "Trolls World Tour" made us realize the importance of teaching kids about music.

This movie picks up where "Trolls" left off. So, today's youth won't have to wait until college to learn that metalheads. Because they are close-minded, country music fans should be wary, and techno DJs are all the same. Instead, they can watch this film, which continues from where "Trolls" left off.

StarDog and TurboCat (2019)

Superhero animated films with talking animals have ruled the box office for 20 years. "StarDog and TurboCat" is a rare mix of the two genres, which seems insane. Since Hollywood loves money, cats playing Batman should have dozens of blockbuster movies. Right?

"StarDog and TurboCat" meet the public's need for cats that fight crime and is a great animated film. If you and your kids want something like "PAW Patrol," this is the movie for you. Critics have given it mixed reviews.

Dr. Seuss' Horton Hears A Who! (2008)

It's frustrating when you discover an advanced culture on a small island but no one believes you. We do, and Horton the elephant agrees with us. The 2008 "Ice Age" team's computer animation of Dr. Seuss's artwork fits the medium. The cast also has great versions of Steve Carell, Amy Poehler, and Jim Carrey when they were at the top of their game.

Storks (2016)

This Warner Bros. movie gets high marks for its flashy animation and a wide range of celebrity voices. Andy Samberg does the voice of a bird that helps deliver babies. If the script had been changed again, "Citizen Kane" would have been better, but you would still watch it. "Storks" is worth watching if you're stuck with bored kids, and Key and Peele's cartoon wolf cameos are a bonus.


Animation can do anything. Without physical reality's boundaries, filmmakers can tell any tale they want. Even if we ignore the long history of animated films and focus only on Hulu, we can see a catalog that runs from dystopian cyberpunk to CG fairy tale satire and famous children's media.
