Storyline

To the tune "I Would Like to Be a Bird," a young mouse fashions wings from a pair of leaves, to the great amusement of his brothers when his attempts to use them fail. When the butterfly he rescues from a spider proves to be a fairy, he wishes for wings. But his bat-like appearance doesn't fit in with either the birds or the other mice, and he finds himself friendless; even the bats make fun of him. Written by Jon Reeves <jreeves@imdb.com>

The bat
8 July 2011 | by (The Underverse) – See all my reviews

A little mouse wishes to fly and tries to make wings out of leaves. When he rescues a butterfly/fairy from a spider she grants him a wish. He wants wings. His wish comes true but he discovers that birds reject him, his family are afraid of him, and REAL bats taunt him. He begs with the fairy to go back to being an ordinary mouse.

It's a thoroughly average Disney cartoon with an obvious moral (always be yourself!). The animation is okay, but the characters featured are not memorable at all. It's strange that they chose to create another, generic, mouse character when they already had the much more popular Mickey to sell to audiences. It would have been a bit better if they did.
