Did You Know?


At first it was originally going to be released into the United States but there were several scenes that were inappropriate and were cut from the release. One was a scene of Oliver asking a woodpecker who had a resemblance to Woody Woodpecker to join him to fight Fagin, the woodpecker became outraged and did the middle finger, Oliver did the same when Olivia was singing a song. Blood was even in the film at which Fagin scratched his slave and when Betty ripped out Fagin's eye and at Armstrong's party was sexual content. About 30 seconds of the film was cut for the U.S. release. See more »

Excellent animated feature.
1 May 2001 | by McBuffSee all my reviews

This is definitely animator Hastrup´s best film. A compelling and funny story of orphan bird Oliver, who along with girlfriend Olivia and a couple of mice (Frederik and Ingolf of the Cirkeline cartoons) battles evil hawk Fagin. Despite the names, film has little to do with Dickens´ novel, but that doesn´t matter, because the film is great on its own terms. Tommy Kenter´s owl is unmistakably inspired by W.C. Fields, and as usual, Hastrup´s voice casting is excellent.
