I loved this movie when I was a child so I bought the video for my
children. They got so caught up in the movie that they found themselves
cheering for Henry and Crusty while they dodged the "torpedees" (as
Crusty called them).
However, they weren't impressed with Mrs Limpet (the human). They thought she was too mean spirited for poor Henry. Early in the movie my daughter said she didn't blame Henry for wishing to be a fish. Anyone would with a wife like that!
As most good films have a good versus evil slant in the plot, this film also does in a sense. I don't mean the obvious Democracy vs Nazi fight, but the good, kind Henry vs the sneering, lecherous Stickle. As children's movies should be, it is toned down, but you still get an immediate sense of sympathy for Henry while secretly wishing Stickle would get his head stuck in a "torpedee" tube! All in all, a terrific film and one of my favourites!
I saw the Apple Dumpling Gang when I was a child and I found the film
to be delightful. The film is intended to be pure comedy and that is
what it delivers.
Don Knotts and Tim Conway are both excellent actors and they provided a superb performance in this comedy. This is a show that I was proud to show my children and my grandchildren as it holds wonderful childhood memories for me.
There are a lot of shows out there today that are too violent, and rude. This show is refreshing in that you can be assured that your children are not watching blood splattering or listening to foul language. This show is in true Walt Disney fashion.
