One of my favorite memories as a child, 2 November 2004
Author: Kristine ( from Chicago, Illinois

Technically, yes, this is a dark tale. And it can be a little frightful to some children. But I wouldn't worry. There is a happy ending. I remember watching this when I was a child. Not in 75, more like '90 or '91. Sorry, just wanted to make that clear. :D But I loved this cartoon. It was so interesting to me. Sometimes it scared me a little. But even when I was a kid, I loved scary stories. So, I would highly recommend for adults and kids. But if the kids scare easy, you might want to warn them. But also read the book. Yes, even though I am adult now, I still enjoy these classic cartoons. It's a great one.
