put it on DVD
12 January 2006 | by See all my reviews

I watched this movie over and over again as a kid. I want to see this movie put on DVD and watch it over and over again as an adult. It is so much deeper than Mother Goose rhymes and funny as hell. You will never again see a cast of characters like this put together in such a way. Also as a child it gave a whole new insight into the world of Mother Goose and the world of imagination. I was able to see a "real" side to all those stories I had been read over the years. Now looking back on this movie I wish I could show it to all of my friends I think they would love it and maybe one day the studio will put it out on DVD and we will be able to enjoy it all over again. It is simply awesome!
