My family taped this animated version of Charles Dicken's family classic, when it came on TV during Christmas holidays. And we still have it to this day. I love this wonderful animated film. I also love it that anthromorphic animals are used as the story's characters in the tradition of Walt Disney's "Robin Hood," and I also love that some of the main characters are cats...I love cats. You know, I kind of liked Agnes as a Duke's daughter, in a way she's almost like a princess.
If I had to choose which film adaptation of this classic story is the best: The 1935 live-action version with W.C. Fields, Edna May Oliver, Basil Rathbone and Freddie Bartholomew? Or this one? I would choose both. So overall, I will always love this film and I still have yet to read the actual novel...But that is OK.
