Storyline

Having spent their whole lives under human abuse in a laboratory, a trio of of genetic animals, consisting of Eddie the Gorilla, Sasha the Cheetah, and Trevor the Parrot, decide to escape the lab and travel the world in hopes of finding a place told only in legends, a place called Himalaya USA. Along the way, however, several trials will be putting the gang to the test, especially ones that test their friendship and test their hopes and faith. A mysterious hunter, meanwhile, trails behind the gang using tracking devices in order to catch them and, how should we say...dispose of them. Written by aka-45316

Not Bad
5 June 2004 | by mickdansforthSee all my reviews

This is a TV movie by DiC for Nickelodean put on DVD by MGM.

It does star animals, and does have singing, but it's not too bad.

They went with a very interesting style of artwork for the movie that elevates the story.

There is an animal research lab that is being closed down, and the animals will be "Taken Care Of", so three of the animals escape and travel around the world trying to escape the hunter.

This strays widely from the original Jules Verne story, 'Around the World in 80 Days' that it is based on, but by the end you can see the story elements they did use.

So there was a lot that made cringe, but I was pretty happy with after it was over.
