A musical Halloween special from Nelvana
30 October 2009 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

I love animation from Nelvana Ltd., along with animation from: Fleischer Studios, Disney Studios, Rankin/Bass, Studio Ghibli from Japan, and Hanna/Barbera. Nelvana has great series like Redwall, Class of the Titans, Little Bear, etc....Yes, Nelvana is an awesome studio. Well anyway, I loved this special The Devil and Daniel Mouse, after I had watched when I was in Junior High. The special was broadcast as a Halloween special in on October 22, 1978 on Canada's CBC, then released on VHS in the 80s; of course I did not know whether it is a Halloween special, I guess I had heard that Halloween can be the highest satanic holy day...Right?

Well anyway (again), this musical special is about two young mouse folk singers named Daniel and Jan, who find themselves with a bleak future after Finding their audience drying up in favour of rock music. Desperate for a better career and life, Jan vows that she would do anything to become a rock star. Instantly, the Devil arises to take advantage of that and offers to make her a star in exchange for her soul. She agrees and she quickly becomes the star she's dreamed of while Daniel, is left behind. On the night of her greatest triumph - Her concert, the devil comes to collect on her soul. In desperation, she turns to Daniel who must attempt the impossible task of trying to find an escape loophole for his girl's release.

Nelvana also remade this special as the movie "Rock & Rule," both about a couple in a musical group struggling in talent joints, the female member used in a diabolical scheme, and ending with the heroines dressed in white tatters and their lovers vanquishing an evil with a song from the heart. So my last word that I love this special, with excellent music and a top-notch cast.
