Don Bluth so hated the final results of the movie after production was wrapped up that he demanded to be uncredited as the director. See more »
During the musical number "Good Ship Misery" there are a few shots where the entire chorus is sliding back and forth on a raft of sorts, and there are several seconds of the background singers being completely inanimate, simply sitting there frozen in place. See more »
I wonder how far it is to Antarctica
3000 miles in that direction. But you'll never get there. I'll give it three days tops and you'll be in the belly of anything from a killer whale, to a sardine!

The Pebble and the Penguin is a fine example of animated film at its best. Hubie, the endearing penguin, illustrates perseverance in its finest form, and his tenacity is something to be admired. This timeless story is delightful to audiences of all ages. In today's world, where divorce and unrequited love run rampant, this simple story inspires and reminds everyone that true love is possible. In order to find the perfect pebble for Marina, Hubie searches the world. The emotional turmoil that Hubie subjects himself to on his quest is akin to the interior tumult any human being feels. This film captures the essence of human love in a captivating and moving way. The musical talent of Barry Manilow only adds to the quality of this film. I think that this animal story offers incite to one of the most pivotal moments of human life: engagement. Everyone should watch this classic tale.
