One of the Greatest Family Classics
23 June 2018 | by MiketheWhistleSee all my reviews

I was so surprised to see no reviews for this classic that I remember watching this annually as a child and absolutely loving it.I'm re-watching it now as an adult via Tubi and it truly warms my heart today as it did long ago.Granted it's not like so many of the animated shows of even 20 years ago, but so what-I still love it and it'd be a great show for your children.
