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
I own an incredibly battered copy of this movie, which leads me to believe that I loved it when I was maybe 6 or 8, but looking back from my young adulthood, I can't say I enjoy it as much. It sat on a shelf for a few years before I dusted it off to reminisce with a movie that I remember loving so much, especially because the main voice was also the woman from Shining Time Station (another kiddie fave). But I soon found that 80% of the scenes made me feel like I was in a chemically-induced state of mind (which I've never actually done, but I'm sure the sensations are similar). Aside from overall creepiness from the male characters, I still appreciate the girly, cutesy message it sends that I oh-so-highly enjoyed in my childhood. But I may not watch it again until I have a dreamy-eyed daughter of my own
