The Elmchanted what?
2 August 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This is one of those movies that, before IMDb, the only thing proving that this movie actually existed was the fact that you had a physical copy of it. I can't tell you how many times i've asked "have you seen the elmchanted forest?" and people ask me "what the hell is that?" i have yet to meet ANYONE who's seen this movie besides my sister, and that's a real shame. Being another one of those forgotten small animation company movies, it was quite good. Searching on IMDb, i can see that no one ever got VA work after this movie, and i don't know why O_O. During this movie we get to meet characters i still remember to this day. Peter, Buddy Bear, Thistle, Cactus King....they're all great. i remember that the mushroom song kinda freaked me out though when i was little.... <_< still, the Voicing was pretty good, the animation quality was not that bad for 1986, and the story was pretty good as well as the music. Some of the voices and lines were classics. i don't think i'll ever forget "did you say.....did you say...BEAVERRRR?!?" This movie really reminds me of my childhood, and it really was a memorable movie. This movie helps the catcus king flower, with an 8, out of 10
