Storyline

Raggedy Ann and the rest of the toys in Marcella's playroom are curious about a package that has just arrived. They look inside and discover it contains a beautiful French doll. The haughty girl, named Babette, is horrified by her new home. She wants to go back to Paris. Meanwhile, the Captain, a pirate in a snow globe, sees Babette and falls in love. He tricks Raggedy Ann into freeing him and then immediately kidnaps Babette and sails out the window. Raggedy Ann and Andy leave the playroom to rescue her. Their adventure includes meeting a blue camel with wrinkled knees; the Greedy, a living, self-consuming taffy pit filled with every candy and confection known to the palate; King Coo Coo and the Loonie Knight, who love to laugh, but only at the expense of others; and Gazooks, a tickle monster hired to give King Coo Coo the last laugh. Finally, they find the Captain; but the damsel in distress proves more capable than they had imagined. Written by J. Spurlin

Just as weird as I remembered.
19 September 2003 | by (Los Angeles, CA) – See all my reviews

I actually found a copy of this movie recently. I hadn't seen it in easily twenty years and its one of those movies that ALWAYS had stuck with me. Every time I mentioned it to someone, they would look at me a little strangely. Watching the film again brought back alot of memories and I was amazed at how much I had actually retained.

The animation style is very interesting because each character is done by a different animator, each using their own style. At times this is a little jarring but overall it adds to the mood of the movie which is WEIRD. The film switches from happy musical numbers to the dolls getting trapped in a pit with a grotesque, horrifying candy monster (one of the images that was burned into my memory 26 years ago.) Definitely a great deal of imagination involved in this film. If you can find this, its definitely worth watching.
