An inspiring piece of work
9 January 2001 | by (Columbus, Ohio) – See all my reviews

I don't care who knows it: I love this movie. There, I've said it.

And since there is no plot summary here yet ... Tubby is indeed a tuba, who longs to find a melody he can play. But nobody writes music for tubas to play, they're only supposed to do that oom-pah thing. But Tubby, despite feeling he should maintain his life station of background instrument, cannot contain his desire to play leads.

The story unfolds with a lot of interesting characters, some of them other instruments, some "tunes" which seem to be something like orphaned sirens with musical noted-shaped heads. Yet it all makes sense when you watch it.

At any rate, it's a well-made cartoon. Kids will enjoy it and I think it has a lot to say on the subject of independence and finding the best way to live your life. Hey, Dick Van Dyke wouldn't attach his name to any old thing, right?
