Storyline

When Tangie, a teddy bear goes into the Smile-erator on his head, his smile is put on upside down, causing him to end up on the bargain bin on Christmas Eve with other misfit toys, then onto Winkle's Emporium, a discount store. There, Tangie does his level best over the coming year to become a part of some family. He spends his time in Winkle's front window with Jack, a Jack-in-the-box with claustrophobia and Bird, a cuckoo clock bird with agorophobia. Written by Anonymous

A Fine Cast; A Decent Family Film...
18 December 2002 | by (UK) – See all my reviews

Jonathan Taylor Thomas, Howie Mandel, David Hyde Pierce, Jenna Elfman, Marlon Wayans and Tom Bosley make up the cast of "The Tangerine Bear," a decent family film that features a fine cast and "okay" animation.

Tangy is a teddy bear who has tragically been created with an upside-down smile. In this film he basically sits in a toy shop and is a good samaritan to other toys, and of course the sentimental ending is included.

The animation may not be great, the story may be a bit dry, but "The Tangerine Bear" isn't that bad. Just decent. It's clean entertainment to be enjoyed around the holiday, which as I write this, is coming up very soon.

2.5/5 stars--
