Brown-Eyed Susan and the other Charmkin children of Charmland go on a quest to rescue Lady Slipper after she is kidnapped by Evil Dragonweed and whisked off to Thistledown to dance for him and his goons.
One of the oddest versions that I have ever seen, and yet, somehow, also the sweetest. The screenwriters did take a few too many liberties with the story, even more than in the other Cannons, but the whole thing is so darn cute that you don't care. A slightly older Aileen Quinn ("Annie") is charming and Helen Hunt is such a cool wicked stepsister. (I wonder if she remembers making this movie!) Every one of the songs is memorable and enjoyable. It's impossible to pick a favorite. This was literally my favorite movie when I was little, also, it is the only Cannon Movie Tale that I owned when I was little! So? It's never too late to watch children's movies!
