This was actually pretty good!
6 May 2003 | by ash2kSee all my reviews

The music was good. The animation was so-so. It paid attention to detail but someone decided not to erase the basic lines and shapes of the characters. Your kids will probably like it if you rent the American legends Video or DVD.
