Sir, have you come to help us?
[Catactacus walks over to him]
Are you going to take us out of here?
[Catactacus kneels in front of him]
What's your name, son?
Well, Peter, you shouldn't be afraid.
[Truly, the Toymaker and the children listen with interest]
Even in a terrible place like this, because there's always hope. That's what I always tell my children when they're... afraid.

Surprised folks wouldn't like this delightful film!
It surprises me that some people think this is a horrible film. I was 3 when this film was released and for as long as I can remember I've loved it! The songs are fun, especially Hushabye Mountian, Chu-chi Face and Me Ole Bamboo. This movie is both light, cheery as well as dark and creepy, the Child Catcher to this day is one of the scariest villians I know! And know it is a fabulous musical in London! Hopefully someday it will come to Broadway, I'd love to see it on stage!.
