Storyline

Pelle is a cat who was born without a proper tail. He is taken care of by a family living in Uppsala. Without a tail, he becomes the talk of the town among the other cats, and especially Måns, who teases him cruelly.

Cute and memorable.
17 January 2012 | by (New Bern, N.C.) – See all my reviews

Aah...Peter-no-Tail. A trip down memory lane. I originally viewed this animated feature back in 1983, I believe, when it came on HBO. Of course, I has watched this when it was dubbed in English. The animation wasn't as top-notch as I'd liked, but the story was cute and so were the characters! With the right mix of drama, humor, and action, I did enjoy this title. Out of the entire English vocal cast, I do recall Dom Deluise in there as well as Larry Storch, two actors I liked. Of course, any feature that had Dom DeLuise as a cast member would be memorable. This feature is perfect for any family looking for decent entertainment.
