Quotes:
Star:Come on inside honey.
Young Annabelle:But I wanna go with them! I want to fly too!
Star:Well, you'll have to ask Santa about that.
Young Annabelle:Is he coming back?
Star:Yes - next year.
Young Annabelle:Good, then I'll wait right here!
[she sits down in the snow]
Ears:Er, you know, a year, is a very, very long time, young lady. Maybe - you'd better wait inside the barn. At least that's my opinion.

The best cartoon I ever saw. Period., 7 January 2001
Author: kikkoboy01

This is an animation for the ages. I thought "Mickey's Christmas Carol" was my absolute favourite of all time, until I saw Annabelle's Wish.

It's the tale of true friendship and unselfishness that I believe EVERYONE should watch. It touches the heart, body, and soul with stunning visuals, a great score, and wonderful art and voices. Buy it if you have kids. Buy it if you are a kid. Buy it... if ... if you still believe there is some good and worth in this world left.
