I have long lasting memories of this film from when I was very small. It was on the television every Christmas, and my sister and I loved. At one point we actually taped it and watched it again and again and again. In fact, most of my generation loved it. OK, so it is badly done, and the plot is predictable and a bit thin, but remember it is designed for kids and was made in the early 80's. A grown adult watching it for the first time would hate it and think it is just a pile of rubbish, that is how I feel about Barbie & the Nutcracker Prince, but kids seeing that when it first came out loved it!!
