Storyline

Banjo is a curious and rebellious kitten who is always getting into trouble. When he decides to jump off a roof of a chicken coup to see if he can land on his feet, he is ordered to "fetch a switch". Thinking his parents wouldn't care if he gets hurt, he hitches a ride on a feed truck, all the way to Salt Lake City. After he finds the excitement of the city, he soon finds it cold and lonely and wishes to be home. With the help of stray cat Crazy Legs and a trio of singing cat girls, he finds the truck and returns home. Written by jcsmarchesi

Quotes

Crazy Legs: [singing] I'll stick with you, kid, you stick with me. Together we'll overcome adversity. And old man trouble will have to let you be, 'cause you're gonna come out smilin' if you stick with me.
Zazu: [Enters stage as crowd cheers and starts singing] Safety in number, we always work things out. We can't be too careful, there's danger all about. So look 'round each corner, and under bushes too. There could be a prowler who's waiting there for you.
Banjo: Oh no, Crazy, what'll I do?
Crazy Legs: What'll you do? I'll tell you...

A Don Bluth Classic
21 January 2003 | by (San Diego, CA) – See all my reviews

Even if I didn't know this was Don Bluth, this animation short is truly a classic. When I first heard of this feature, I had to get it. Only, I wish it were a full length movie. Banjo is a loveable character. Don Bluth sets the tone in great looking animation the way it used to be.
