The magically long-haired Rapunzel has spent her entire life in a tower, but now that a runaway thief has stumbled upon her, she is about to discover the world for the first time, and who she really is.
Ensemble cast of off-the-wall Warner Brothers characters, appearing in a wide variety of roles. Wakko, Yakko, and Dot Warner, are WB Studio creations who were just too "zany" to be of any ... See full summary »
In one scene Danny lands on a cement block from Grauman's Chinese Theater that has Gene Kelly's feet and hand prints (although he did not arrive in Hollywood until 1941, two years after this film takes place and did not place his feet and hands in cement until 1969). This movie was Kelly's last film project. See more »

Well, well. Run of the soundstage, use of Darla's ark, costumes... I don't know. Something seems fishy.
I beg your pardon?
Sorry. It's just that I smell a rat.
Oh, never mind.

No animals were harmed during the making of this film. Although, some were erased and had to be redrawn. See more »
Having grown slightly weary of Disney's modern formula, I was pleasantly surprised to find an animated movie that didn't try to be something BIG. The formula was fresh and original, despite the fact that the premise is as old as time, and the songs were jazzy and finger snapping. All in all, this was a fun movie. Fun and high energy. There was also not one single weak character. No stupid sidekicks here. Everybody makes the experience enjoyable. And the humor is priceless. They also managed to make the story thoughtful and even touching while still keeping the movie light and fun. Great direction. Great music. Great animation. Overall, just a great movie. Surprising for a WB movie. This movie came out the same year as Disney's own Hercules, but this is many times better.
