An interesting cast is the only highlight of this unremarkable fable.
19 March 1999 | by (Tecumseh ok) – See all my reviews

The cast is about the only interesting thing in this unremarkable story of two boys that use magic and wishing to become bear cubs. Eddie (Green Acres) Albert, Jane (Father Knows Best) Wyatt, and Brenda (the singer) Lee perform their acting chores admirably, but the story line and script are just too thin. Scenes of the boys turning to bear cubs feature zee-roe special effects, this one was made in the 60s, but c'mon!! The supporting roles are gleaned from the Who's Who of TV...Jimmy (Mousketeer) Boyd, Nancy (Beverly Hillbillys) Kulp, and Soupy (pie-in-the-face) Sales among others. This might be a good one for the grandkids...just to show them what we had to put up with in the 50s and 60s.
