I saw this movie when i was six and they used to replay it all the time. Fred Savage discovers Ralph the talking Mouse in the hotel he's staying at before he goes to camp. Fred befriends Ralph and gives him a little motorized motorcycle for ralph to ride on. Fred takes Ralph to camp and trouble ensues...
