I will always love this Dickens' film
29 September 2010 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

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.
