It was great when I was a kid!!

This story of a homing pigeon is uplifting, and enjoyable. "Pidge" steals the show, as does the great narration. This movie is similar to other live action Disney movies, but without voices for the animals. I watched this movie when I was in grade school, and is most appropriate for children of that age.
