According to the 2007 DVD director's commentary for the 2006 live action/CG remake of "Charlotte's Web," the sequence with Templeton's feasting at the fair had to be expanded because a test audience commented that they missed the Sherman Brothers song, "A Veritable Smorgasbord," they remembered from the 1973 "Charlotte's Web."

This film didn't completely capture the magic of the beloved E.B. White book I remembered from childhood, but it's head and shoulders above most of the animated fare of its time. The beautiful and poignant book suffers a little under the ham-handed treatment of Earl Hamner Jr. and the obligatory songs, fine as far as songs go, should mostly be gone.
All in all, this is a thoroughly enjoyable film, overflowing with the voices of some of the best talent of its time, some of the best animation Hanna Barbera ever did, and a story that never gets old.
