The original American television broadcast was 140 minutes long. However, the VHS (German) release is only 94 minutes long - this is also the version that is now broadcast on television. Many of the deleted scenes included original songs. (There are currently no plans to release this movie on DVD/Blue-ray) See more »

You! So pretty! So nice! Now you come with me and be my trollog!
[grabs Barnaby, causing him to let go of Lisa]
Not quite yet, Uncle Barnaby.
[lets go of Barnaby and punches him in the face]
[grabs Jack by the throat, attempting to strangle him]
Jack not Be Nimble! Jack Be Dead!
[Jack, however, punches Barnaby in the gut, thus causing him to release him]

I cannot believe I have never heard or seen this movie. I was getting married in 1986 and I guess this just passed me by! Tonight for the first time, I am watching this movie on TV with my nine year old. He loves it! I on the other hand am feigning interest while I'm amazed and entertained by the bad acting, tacky costumes cheap wooden toys and really bad sets!
My 9 year old LOVES the whole thing. The weird little beat up cars and leftover stuff they must of used from a closed amusement park. This looks like a episode of Puff N Stuff on a lower budget. I can certainly see how all the people who truly love this movie must of loved it when it first came out. Lets just say, if I didn't have a 9 year old, I would of clicked right by. :)
