I remember watching this is its original airing in 1962 as a five or six year old and REALLY enjoying this. I recently had the opportunity to watch it again, for the first time since then, as it was aired on "Walt Disney Presents" on the Disney Channel. I'd forgotten most of it, and some of it was geared towards kids, but it was still enjoyable. I can't wait to show it to my niece and nephews.
I saw this nearly 20 years ago when I was about 5 and, apparently, almost wet myself from laughing. It has to be one of the greatest and most innocent films around that all kids can enjoy.
I was reading the newspaper this evening when my daughters started viewing
this video nearby. By the time I finished the paper, I found myself
watching "Sammy" "full-time".
Sure, it's typical Disney animal fluff, but I enjoyed it none the less, and found myself laughing out loud with my children at some of the silly stuff the seal did. (I don't want to spoil it, but my favorite part involved a toy poodle and a pool.) It was also fun seeing the variety of cars and fashions from the early 1960s. (Yes, the mother/housewife does wear a skirt while she cooks breakfast!)
So, find some kids and check out this funny movie!
I had more fun watching my kids watch this movie but secretly I enjoyed it too. And seeing Billy Mumy and Ann Jillian as kids is a riot. Rent it for the kids and don't be surprised to find yourself plopping down on the couch next to 'em.

separation anxiety. Young Mr. McGreevey decides they can't take "Sammy"
back to "Disneyland"
er, "Gatesville" - but, young Mr. Mumy packs him
anyway. At home, they try to hide "the Way-out Seal" from adults, and,
