Great advance for its time.
17 September 2007 | by Mr-JAFOSee all my reviews

This was the 1st animated color movie of Europe. I remember I saw it in the movies about 20-25 years ago (it was a re-release, of course). The movie was full of adventures and it had a great animation, with a bit of action, a bit of sense of humor and a bit of drama and tenderness. It was a nice experience to watch this movie, even if it may appear kind of dated, cause it shows a good story starred by a brave guy, and shows additional values (even if most of them were inspired by the dictatorship of the time). A good recommendation for kids of all ages. Watch it, especially with its original Spanish sound, and then tell me how you feel.
