I would love to own a vcr tape of "Katy the Caterpiller". Is it available?
23 July 2003 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I watched this movie in the mid-80's and it kept my attention the whole time. I thot it was the cutest, sweetest animated movie i had ever seen. It was so interesting watching katy wander thru her life wishing she was something different and the sadness she experienced along the way because she felt so ugly and wanted to be beautiful. Then seeing the happiness she finally came to know when she changed into a butterfly and was so beautiful. I remember it brought tears to my eyes.

This movie has always stayed in my mind but i have never seen it again in all these years. I wish they would show this movie again sometime so I could make a vcr tape of it. It is a priceless animated movie that all children and adults would love.
