A canine angel, Charlie, sneaks back to earth from heaven but ends up befriending an orphan girl who can speak to animals. In the process, Charlie learns that friendship is the most heavenly gift of all.
He must present his special pebble to her before the pebble festival is over, or lose his chance forever. He just manages to pluck up the nerve, when the evil Drake knocks him off the ice, and Hubie is swept away. Picked up and caged by a ship, he meets the streetwise Rocko, whose only wishes are to live in sunny climates and learn to fly. Together they escape, and Hubie convinces Rocko to help him find Antarctica. When they reach the home ice, Hubie must defeat his worst enemy, and Rocko must face up to the reality of his dream of flying.Written by

Was originally meant to be released in the summer of 1994 but was pushed to April of 1995 due to production errors as well as to avoid heavy competition from films released during the summer of 1994 such as The Lion King and The Mask. See more »
During the opening credits, when you hear a man and woman singing about pebbles, there is a mismatch between the sheet music on screen and what is actually sung. The woman's line indicates that the notes should go down as she sings "forever," but her voice goes up instead. See more »
Everybody knows that penguins can't fly!
You're wrong! You are dead wrong! Our ancestors flew! They gave us wings when we can't fly?! I mean, I mean whose idea of a cruel joke is this?

The cast is listed twice in the end credits: first under "Voices in Order of Appearance," and the second time in alphabetical order under The Actors. See more »
I am 13 years old and still loving this movie. I saw it when I first came out and was obsessed with it. Still, I look back and find this movie and watch it when I do find this. I love this movie. If anyone watches Hey Arnold, the man who plays Coach Wittenberg is in this movie. That makes it even more fun to look bad on and see. Go see this movie if you get the chance. Rent it or go to your local library. Hubie is so unbelievably adorable and the part when the penguins sing is still the greatest cartoon musical. Hubie is just the cutest most adorable penguin and the pebble idea is so great. The ending is so sweet, it'll make you want to rewind and see this movie again. So, go see The Pebble and the Penguin!
