Previously I had only seen the 1997 remake of this. This version is oriented more towards a younger crowd. It does not play up the comedy angle as much. I felt it was nicely done, and appropriate for the up to age 10 crowd.
You may find this on DVD in the $1.00 family bin at Walmart. At least, that's where I found it. One word of warning on the DVD. It's nice that Digiview put it out on DVD. Having said that, the master must have been pretty bad. Don't expect top-notch quality here. It plays more like a well-worn VHS, with audio to suit. There are places where wear on the film shows through, and areas where it was obvious the film had been spliced. Thankfully, the entire movie is better in this regard than the opening credits. But hey, for a buck who's complaining?
