Storyline

It looks like young Keith Gridley will have a lonely summer, until he meets a talking mouse named Ralph. Ralph takes an immediate liking to Keith's toy motorcycle and can ride it just by making a motor noise. Ralph even acts heroically when Keith comes down with a nasty fever, while dodging cats, owls and a guest's noisy dog. Written by Dylan Self <robocoptng986127@aol.com>

A cute and worthwhile picture.
7 September 1999 | by (Seattle, WA) – See all my reviews

This made a diverting viewing session. Acting credible, and effects worked. Not up to technical standards we've been seeing lately (the mouse tends to be jerky) but a kind picture, with suspense and laughter. It will amuse. It will not offend.

The average reaction I heard? "My, what a CUTE picture!"
