When I was a kid, this was one of my all time favourites, and still is.
3 February 2009 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

This is a short and beautiful cartoon of the message of Easter, with a wonderfully inspired story, about the baker's struggles with the Romans.I highly recommend this for everybody who is religious or loves animation. The characters were wonderful, and all were appealing. Nylus was diabolical, and so was Nero. I loved the change to Cappella, and I cried when he died. The character animation was great, and true to the TV series. Speaking of the story, the story was the real star here. You had a totally original story, that was revolved around the story of Jesus, which was so clever, and I couldn't fault this. It also taught the importance of friendship, loyalty and family values. The few voice overs credited were flawless. Tim Curry, despite the limited screen time, was in his element as Nero, truly evil. Sheryl Lee Ralph as Risa was a delight as well, as was Debby Boone as Helena. Kudos to everyone else as well, particularly Adam Wylie as Justin. The songs were among the best I have heard in an animation. Robert Guillaume singing the title song was a rare gem. He was about 70 when he did that, amazing. Glory be to Me, was brilliantly sung by Tim Curry. That is a truly difficult song to sing, and Tim Curry made it sound easy. the animation in this segment was wonderful, and showed how truly horrible Nero was. Debby Boone sang her song and reprise with so much feeling and heart, and I was blown away by the beauty of it all. For once the lyrics were well written, and told the story, and even gave us an insight into the character. This cartoon is a must-see! 10/10. Bethany Cox
