One of Jetlag's most charming animations

Author: TheLittleSongbird from United Kingdom
21 July 2012

If I had to comprise a top 5 of my favourite Jetlag animations it would consist of Heidi, The Magic Gift of the Snowman, Little Red Riding Hood, Cinderella and this(I do have fond memories of Leo the Lion and look forward to re-watching it soon), with my least favourites(though neither are necessarily bad) being A Christmas Carol, Alice in Wonderland, Jungle Book and The Hunchback of Notre Dame. What I love about this Black Beauty was like the book does and versions like the 1994 film and the 1975 series the story never fails to charm and move me. The writing is again simple, but not overly-so, instead it is of an overall sweet and heart-warming tone, while the animation is overall vibrant and smooth with the character designs less stiff than they can be. And the music right from the whimsical incidental music to the three obligatory but beautiful songs(the best being Hold Your Head High, mainly because of its inspiring message) is memorable and doesn't feel formulaic in the least. All in all, really charming, Leo the Lion might overtake it for the top 5 Jetlag list but whatever happens Jetlag's Black Beauty will always be one of their better efforts. 9/10 Bethany Cox
