Duffy Moon!
27 October 2009 | by evatorres67See all my reviews

SO I AM NOT CRAZY AFTER ALL!! I like most of you always remembered the phrase "You can do it Duffy Moon". I am so excited! I am 42 years old and STILL remember this special! LOVE IT! Everyone would totally look at me like I was insane. Now I have proof! I just made sure to copy all the information and put it on my web page and email my brother who seems to be the only one who remembered the phrase with me. It seems like so long ago but I remember watching the special as if it were just yesterday. I remember the movie making me feel good. I wish there were movies this good for my children. I will try to find this on video and make sure my kids watch it.
