An Inspiring, Sentimental Story In Animated Form
28 February 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This was my first look ever at a "Raggedy Ann" animated short, so I had no idea what to expect. Being part of a package of old cartoons put on DVD, I expected some humor. However, this story - and maybe her others (I'll find out) - are not meant for comedy. This is simply an inspirational little movie, a really nice story with nice people and a nice message. It also has some dazzling artwork, although the copy I saw is in desperate need of some "restoration."

In a nutshell, this introduces a rag doll, the famous "Raggedy Ann," to a blind little girl named "Billie." Through the doll, the girl learns to use her imagination and "see" things, for the first time.

It is a very touching sentimental story. At first I thought this was strictly for little girls, but not so: the message and the way it's presented is pretty profound for people of any age and gender.
