cursed boy leaves home to travel with a pack of wild geese
5 February 2002 | by (UK) – See all my reviews

This was definitely one of the 1980s animated series eagerly awaited on a regular basis by many a child. This is how the story goes more or less ... Nils is a nasty little boy who likes to play tricks on all the animals in the farm. One day he decides to pick on a pixie, only to discover it was not the wisest of his ideas. To punish him, the pixie shrinks him to guinea pig size. Nils escapes the wrath of the farm animals by leaving with a flock of wild geese hoping to discover how he can get his normal size back.
