Not even for kids!
5 April 2011 | by (Victoria, BC) – See all my reviews

This animated movie has been all but forgotten today, despite it being made by Rankin/Bass, the people who gave us animated TV specials like "Frosty The Snowman". Watching it, it's easy to see why it's forgotten, and difficult to understand why it was unearthed for a DVD release! Though this movie was made for theaters, the animation is strictly at the level of Saturday morning TV cartoons of the time - which as you know wasn't that spectacular. The songs are terrible, though the song the three men in the tub does come close - but not close enough - to working. The screenplay doesn't show any feeling of a progressing story, with plenty of padding despite the running time only being 81 minutes long. And while there was one director, some jarring cuts in some scenes make it feel like several units were animating different stuff, and when put together don't have a cohesive feel. I know this movie was made for kids, but I am confident they will be bored and want to watch something else just from watching the first ten minutes. If you want to watch a GOOD Rankin/Bass animated movie, look for a copy of "The Last Unicorn".
