Mr Horatio Knibbles
29 July 2006 | by heleniaroweSee all my reviews

I am so surprised to find so many comments about this film, i though i was the only person in the world who loved this film so much when i was little! It used to be aired really early Christmas morning and i would love anyone to contact me if they know where to obtain a copy of this film or if they can sell me one! I have a little sister who has never seen this and would love my children in the future also to be able to watch it. My memories of the film are quite sketchy, but i remember thinking it was great and my mum and dad have never forgotten the film or how much my brother and i loved it. Please contact me if you have any info on the whereabouts of this film!
