Cute, fast-moving kiddie cartoon, loosely based on a true story, about a kid who comes into possession of Babe Ruth's missing bat and treks from New York to Chicago to return it to him -- right in the middle of the World Series. Since this is a cartoon, the bat and the kid's baseball both have faces and talk. Whoopi Goldberg is perfect as the the old bat (heh heh). The animation is simple and the action never flags. The finale is a real crowd pleaser. And this review comes from someone who gave up watching cartoons a long time ago, especially CGI cartoons. Maybe it was the baseball angle that kept me watching this one. I am a lifelong Yankees fan, after all.
