I have some other of his movies that are much better than this movie when it comes to a storyline being put together (such as Secret of NIMH, American Tail 1 and 2, Land Before Time series), but I still got quite a few laughs out of it for me to rate it a 4 star movie. It is based on a story by Hans Christian Anderson. The animation was very well done and the music was good too. Sometimes I find it hard for me to find anything 'really funny' for me but this time I would say that this was a good buy from that perspective. Also, the music that was done in this movie, as there was quite a bit of that too, and was arranged by Barry Manilow. I have never been a fan of him, really, but from the music scores that were in it, they were enjoyable. Bottom line then, for a great price you get a fun movie and yes, I would recommend this as another good movie for our DVD library.
