A terrific X-mas cartoon. Teaches the real spirit behind X-mas.
19 October 2006 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

"The Night the Animals Talked" I remember it still.

I like many comments posted here, thought this was an awesome show. I was very young "the one and only time" I saw it. Five? Six years of age? I always looked for it at X-mas time special ...and never saw it again.

At 46 years of age, I still remember it. It definitely made an impression.

Now that I know it it is still out there. I will be trying to find it.

Obviously a good cartoon for young kids.

From some of the comments I've seen posted. It is a good show for us old kids now too. I am looking forward to finding it and seeing it again and sharing with my family.

I mean here I am, searching for it on the net. Obviously it made an impression. Helps to be an animal lover, but not necessary to enjoy this movie.
