nicely drawn animation
24 December 2009 | by (Los Angeles) – See all my reviews

I sometimes find myself working very late (early?) hours, and this program comes on when the only other option infommercials.

I came across this 1987 Japanese-Canadian production one late night and sometimes have it going in the background when working. Characters are very nicely-drawn, background art lush, voices and soundtrack work well. Production value, overall, is pretty good but the animation is distractingly choppy.

If the writing were a little better, it would play like an early Miyazaki production.

Compared with some of the other early-morning kids programming crap, this is some pretty decent eye-candy.
