New Generation of Love
Verified purchase
I watch this when I was little and brought it for my daughter to watch with me. Just to say a new generation of love has began. If people have not seen this these are some scenes in the beginning that shows death so if getting for younger children be ready to answer so questions

Enjoyable - With such a brilliant story and end song
Verified purchase
The creators of An American Tail bring a movie that became an enjoyable fav of mine.

The story involves a group of animal furlings who set out to find some special plants to aid their sick friend who falls ill from dangerous gas caused by a tanker that's crashed into the forest of Dapplewood.

The end song "Once Upon a Time with Me" bought me nearly into tears after hearing it for the first time.
Only downside to this film is that i wish it would have gone on for a little longer, and like most animated films would start off
with families being separated or parents being killed off (As Michelle, a main character in the film, sadly had her parents dead) like most animated films like An American Tail, Land Before Time and The Lion King.

Still this is an enjoyable animated classic many will enjoy :)

Good film
Verified purchase
My son liked watching this film and liked the characters. Although it's not as well known as other animated films, it costs a lot to buy and not worth the money.

Childhood favourite.
Verified purchase
I loved this when I was a kid, but unfortunately we lost the tape, or it got given away or something, and so I bought this to replace it. No issue with the DVD at all.

A must for children to watch!
Verified purchase
Bought this on dvd for my grandson as I have it in video form that his mum used to watch as a little girl. The little badger is called Michelle, my eldest daughters name. A wonderful story for little ones to enjoy. The owl is a little scary though! Everytime he comes he picks it up for me to put on. Timeless piece of animation!
