Quotes

Lil Farley: There was little else to do in Bluesville but work. For most people, that meant working at the what factory.
Sister: What's a what factory?
Lil Farley: That's where they make one thing and one thing only: question marks. Did you ever wonder where all the question marks in the world come from? However, working there could be quite confusing.
Man 1: Excuse me, at what factory do you work at?
Man 2: That's right.
Man 1: What's right?
Man 2: Exactly.

He's a little irritating, if you know what I mean.
15 December 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Cute little story with music by Harry Connick Jr. That should be enough for most people to tune in, but there is more.

Carol Kane (Hester Street, "Taxi") plays the best friend of Eubie (Rob Paulsen, who has seven Annie nominations and three wins for his characters). One of my favorite comedians (even though he was in that awful Farce of the Penguins) Lewis Black also has a major role. Kevin Michael Richardson (The Matrix Revolutions, "Clerks") sings the blues. Mickey Rooney is Santa.

There is enough here to make even the adults happy and the story is funny and really in the spirit of the season.
