One of the rarest and best foreign animated films.
18 August 2013 | by (Bastrop, Louisiana) – See all my reviews

I'm not much on magicians, but Thistle is pretty adorable. I love this film next to Disney's Bongo because of the animated romance. It's just so "O.M.G." warm. Too bad this never came out in the U.S.. But for the record, I'm glad this is the only version known to exist because, seriously, if this was dubbed is English, it would be really crappy and clumsy, like the English dubbed version "The Elm-Chanted Forest". It wasn't nearly as good as the original Croatian version. Especially "Hurray for Betty Boop", which was actually animated Betty Boop shorts combined together into a full length movie with poorly written script and it was totally badly criticized, in which it was never released on newer VHS. and DVDs (it was only released once on VHS back in the mid 1980s), possibly never seen again when the 1980s died. Even the Super Mario Bros. anime movie is better left in Japanese. The original is always best, even if I don't understand foreign language.
