Simple, extremely dated and oh so bad. But it's entertaining!
27 March 2005 | by (Santa Clarita, CA) – See all my reviews

I had to comment on this movie when I saw nobody else has. I use to watch this made for TV movie all the time as a kid. It's very, how should I say, a poorly done after school special-which only makes it more corny and entertaining. Gary Coleman, Ray Walston, Robert Guillome, June Allison, Mason Adams (the Smuckers jam and Cadbury Egg voice!) and Tootie are all in it. My favorite part in the whole movie is when Mason Adams is in his backyard and Gary Coleman makes him fall off a wall onto his back! It's so bad that it's great. Anyways, the movie is what it is-an old made-for-TV movie that will never make it to video or DVD. But, if you manage to catch it on TV.....watch it!!!!
