Inspiring
2 November 2011 | by (Hamilton, Ontario, Canada) – See all my reviews

If there had been any movie that had gave me inspiration in fighting animal abuse, this title would be it. I have seen a number of Black Beauty versions, but to this day, this one remains my favorite for the lasting impression it had given me when I saw it when I wast about five years old. I am fickle when it comes to Hanna-Barbara animation, but I have to say, it worked well here. The backgrounds are simple and yet beautiful, watercolour like. In my eyes, this goes to prove, one doesn't need 3D to tell a good, solid story.

A neat little tidbit, Alan Young voices Black Beauty here, and in the 1994 version!
