Trivia

According to notes on the video: 'By the time filming began in 1969, The Bee Gees were down to a trio consisting of Barry and Maurice Gibb and drummer Colin Petersen. Robin Gibb quit the group earlier in the year following the release of the group's fourth album "Odessa". Songs for the film were recorded during the summer of 1969 with Petersen on drums, but when filming began he was fired from the group. His scenes from the film were cut and he is not credited in the accompanying album, though he does play on some songs.

(under the heading "Home Media"): The title was briefly released in the U.S. in the early days of home video by the tiny label Video Tape Network, but quickly disappeared from sale, likely due to a licensing dispute. The tape was once cited by Video Review magazine as the rarest commercial release ever, and copies have fetched three figures on the collector's market. It has never since been officially released on home video in any form, though bootlegs have circulated for years. See more »

all ages film
10 August 2004 | by (barcelona, spain) – See all my reviews

you can enjoy watching this film with the whole family 'cos it's a fanny film treated as a funny tale... no sex, no violence, just fun and great music; the most remarkable is the wonderful bee gees music...

i hardly recommend you to buy the cd cucumber castle.

(you'll be surprised if you are waiting for any kind of bee gees fever, this is their previous music, you just buy it and listen to it...

i promise you'll enjoy it so much!)
