cute, clever movie
18 June 1999 | by (boston, MA) – See all my reviews

this movie is excellent, kids love it and it's fun for adults, too. the animals are adorable, and the narrator is perfect. i love the complete absence of humans throughout the movie. far preferable to other animal movies in which the animals talk (which is just an cheap way of getting around the communication problem in animal movies). instead of a slap-dash disney-type production, this is more like a storybook that someone has really taken the time to bring to life.
