I think this movie is a classic. I was five when this movie came out and I was all OVER it until I was thirteen. I watched it a hell of a lot. It’s a cute cartoon that teaches some valuable lessons to a child. Watching it as an adult I find that the story itself is nothing to sneeze at either. It’s a well written, well directed, well drawn movie.

Ok, so it doesn’t have the super-amazing graphics that we have now, but for its time it was pretty well done. And although it’s short, no longer than most of the TV shows today at just over an hour, it doesn’t feel rushed. Be prepared to cry, however, if you’re prone to such things.

The one thing I totally forgot though was how much of a bitch Sara was. Wow.

Overall Opinion – 4.5/5
