The broom is destroyed by a fire-breathing dragon who threatens to eat the witch but the creatures band together to impersonate a monster and save her. As a result she fashions a luxurious new broom with seats on which they can all ride comfortably. Written by don @ minifie-1

Absolutely delightful
10 June 2020 | by EiforgetSee all my reviews

I've been watching this with my 2 1/2 year old grandson since he was born and we both love it and never tire of it. Beautifully done in every respect. The voice actors are phenomenal and the graphics are so wonderful..a visual treat. 2 1/2 years of watching this traditionally whenever we're together and my grandson still gets excited when the film starts, knowing whats coming, and he stays fully engaged the entire time, as do I. The villian in this, a hungry dragon who stalks the witch to make a meal of her, is just the right amount of menace for a young child to get excited over yet still handle without causing nightmares later. The dog, cat, bird and frog all have unique personalities that are so very relatable and charming and their journey toward friendship and teamwork is a fine example for young children. I give this the highest praise one can give. So very glad we came upon this gem which now is a traditional go-to in the family.
