Perhaps the finest film to come from the Fleischer brothers
25 July 2000 | by (Connecticut) – See all my reviews



Raggedy Ann and Raggedy Andy by Max and Dave Fleischer is not only one of the very best films to come from the studio of these underrated animators, but is, in my opinion the best film ever made on the characters (dolls).

Here we see a combination of a wonderful, poignant and sensitive story most children and all adults that have managed to retain their child-hearts will enjoy. It is a lovely period piece and while not in the Disney style, matches anything to come from the Disney studio of the period. While Disney went on to greater heights, these two pioneers inspired the young Disney when he was still delivering newspapers in Kansas City.

The Fleischer brothers were innovators and pioneers of the art of animation at a time when nearly everything they produced was a delightful, breakthrough film. This one is memorable...a most precious gift for children, especially the sensitive ones, who will never forget it.
