I am not the only baby-boomer who wants this on DVD
19 October 2006 | by eebarnettSee all my reviews

Michael Eisner seemed to market every Disney film on video then he re-leased them again on DVD. This is one of the films that I love but it just hasn't been released.

Hey, Robert Iger, this movie is special to LOTS of people. Please release it to the new generation of children who have never seen "Toby Tyler."

I saw this movie first in Lake Tahoe, CA, while on vacation with my parents. I am 49 now and I would still watch it many times--if I could only find it.

Classic Disney--family oriented, familiar cast from other Disney films, great storyline.

If it ever comes out on DVD, I will run to buy it as soon as I know about it.
