I used to watch this movie all the time as a child, but my mother acciendently taped over it; I was crushed. But about 10 years later, I happily discovered the DVD at Target. The movie is even clearer and more spectular on DVD, despite having no extras, but then again this movie was made in the 1960s, so how would there be extra footage?
You know the story from the other reviews, but what you don't know is this is a classical story/movie that will have your heart singing and dancing by the end. Also your children will love it for there is no animation, like today, that looks fake. And also parents will enjoy it, if they're young at heart. Plus, they won't have to worry at what they children are seeing.
Enjoy this classical, wonderful, delighting, funny, adorable, enchanting ...movie, if you are young at heart.
In the film, Annette Funicello plays Mary Quite-Contrary and Tommy Sands plays Mary's fiancée Tom Piper, the Piper's son. As Mary and Tom's wedding approaches, evil schemer Barnaby (The Wizard of OZ's Ray Bolger) hatches a plot to drown Tom, and steal Mary's sheep in an effort to get her to marry him...for the money she will inherit. But unfortunately for Barnaby, the two henchmen he had order to kill Tom, kidnap him instead and sell him to a band of gypsies...for more money of course, since they're being payed by Barnaby to get rid of Tom.
But when Mary discovers Tom is alive, the couple had a happy reunion. But when the two went back to Mary's cottage, the children in Marys' care, Wee Willie Winkie, Little Boy Blue and Little Bo Peep had gone to look for the sheep in the Forest of No Return. The two found the children, but they spend the night in the forest. In the morning, the band were "captured" by the trees of the forest and escorted to Toyland to see the Toymaker. That's all I could tell you folks, you will have to see the film for yourself how it ends.
Overall, this film's a wonderful Disney production...too bad it had a disappointing box office performance.
When I found out this was on DVD, I told my husband that unless I received it for Christmas I would be miserable. He came through for me as always!
There are no added features to this DVD, but as far as I'm concerned the movie itself (and the durability of DVD) is more than enough reason to buy it. It's a fun musical, with great dance routines, familiar Mother Goose characters, and classic guest appearances. Ray Bolger shines as the wicked Mr. Barnaby, and Annette Funicello (my hero since the age of 5) is golden as Mary Quite Contrary. Add Tommy Sands and you have some duets that make smiles appear out of nowhere.
Whether DVD or VHS, this movie is wonderful. I adore it just as much as I did when I was a kid.

I remember watching it many years ago, we got it on tape but quality wasn't the best so I ordered the DVD here. The songs are good and the fight with Barnaby at the end is epic.Published 22 months ago by Giga Bytes7
