Very pretty short, but done more effectively before.
30 November 2003 | by (Tucson AZ) – See all my reviews

This is Iwerks just biding time until closing down. A typically beautiful short, but it was nothing special or original. Tom Thumb was old hat by the time this was released, so something a bit different than the garden variety adaptation is needed to make this worthwhile. This was not what the studio did well, to put it kindly. So you have the average cartoon from Iwerks-competent, well animated and lovely, but not too special. Worth watching for all that. Recommended.
