A Great Animated Adaptation Of The Jules Verne Classic
26 July 2006 | by (Big Lake, Alaska) – See all my reviews

By far the best animated telling of 20,000 Leagues Under The Sea. I look forward to the day that this Rankin/Bass gem is released on DVD. Those of you who are familiar with the Rankin/Bass style of animation will appreciate this offering as it is highly reminiscent of the studios other works like The Hobbit. Having read the novel itself, this telling follows the story more closely than the Disney movie ever did.....which is of course a masterpiece in its own right. Rankin/Bass has produced many other series and movies over the years that would make great additions to any collectors library if only they would release them on DVD/Video. If anybody has a source for this animated feature why not post it for the rest of us?
