Storyline

Chester Cricket gets trapped inside a picnic basket and transported from his home in Connecticut to the middle of New York City. Alone and lost, he meets up with Harry and Tucker, a cat and mouse that have somehow become friends, and with Mario, a young boy who works with his father at a Times Square newsstand. When it's discovered that Chester can play songs he hears from the radio just by rubbing his legs, people begin to come from all around to listen. Though Chester is happy with his new-found friends, he will eventually have to say good-bye and return to his home. Written by Jean-Marc Rocher <rocher@fiberbit.net>

Artistic, beautiful, a classic that belongs in every child's movie library
13 May 2014 | by (Portland, OR) – See all my reviews

This was a cartoon from my parents generation and they lovingly introduced it to me as a child. I was a flaky kid and I never sat through anything... However I sat through this one. I think I loved everything about it. The music, the art, the voice acting. There was something kind of sophisticated about it considering it was a cartoon... but I loved the feel of it and I can not quite describe it...

It was created in the early 70s and stars a little cricket brought to NY and separated from his home in Connecticut. While I love everything about it, I feel the thing that really captivated me was the music.... I have always loved music. This cartoon stars music. I can not give everything away.. but the music captivated me and calmed myself and my wild brothers.

I just have to say, see it, especially if you have energetic kids. it's a very calming film.
