I love/d this, 20 July 2006
Author: Carol Sandford from United Kingdom

Being a massive Rupert fan as a child, I just fell in love with this short film as soon as I saw it with my now grown up children, and I still own a copy of it myself. Next stop is the DVD version.

I wish they'd bring Rupert back. We need his innocence and his love of adventure for our future generations. He'll never go out of fashion, and I think Paul & Co's voices were perfect.

The fact that Paul McCartney took time out from being a Rock God to compose this stunning piece of movie and music is truly commendable. I wish he'd do some more. The song/movie is still hot, judging by ebay etc, so it would definitely make money, in my honest opinion.

But just knowing that there are children, and adults out there waiting to watch and listen to his mini masterpieces, I'm sure, would thrill Paul, and Linda, God rest her soul.
