Three of the main actors from the film Breakin' (1984) appear in this film. Bruno 'Pop N' Taco' Falcon, Timothy 'Poppin' Pete' Solomon and Ben Lokey.

Greatest mini musical ever, 30 August 1999
Author: capteo-2 from Los Angeles, CA

The story of Captian EO is one that is told through dance and music allowing it to be loved by people from all over the world. With Michael Jackson's great singing and dancing and a great performance by Angelica Houston this movie should be a classic 15 minute short. I wish it were released on tape or shown again in the Disney parks.
