If you could only choose one animated feature to be in your childhood memory ..pick this one.
3 August 2003 | by (Diest , Belgium) – See all my reviews

The movie , based on comic , starts a little dark and moody and directly brings up the huge "vibe" around this movie.Everything is just perfect! The animation is superb , the voice-acting is one of the best I've ever heard , when you hear Bommel say "Als je begrijpt wat ik bedoel" for only one time , you'll never forget his voice.It's a very touching story with tears but also laughter , and lot's of it. Definatly my top movie from my childhood years ( Hey , I still watch it , sue me !).

If you could only pick one animated feature to be in your childhood memory.. pick this one.
