    does anyone remember this flick?

    i absolutely loved it as a kid, i had it on video tape back then.

    i just watched it again, and it lost nothing of its magic. the songs, the characters, the story, it still pulls me in, after having watched it like a million times.

    I loved it in second grade. We were going to watch it in class, but I got sick and had to go home, and it upset me enough that I still remember it...

    It's a Don Bluth movie, and Don Bluth is the man. "Dragon's Lair", and "Space Ace" defined my youth nearly as much as Star Wars and Indy. In '87 my Dad even bought me a "Space Ace" arcade machine that he got a killer deal on. The LD player doesn't work, but I don't see myself getting rid of it anytime soon.

    I love Bluth's animation, and the video games, but most of his films are darn near unwatchable, IMO. There are exceptions.

    Wow, I cannot believe there's a "Rock-a-doodle" thread on the RPF. I haven't thought about this movie in years, lol.

    The screenwriter, David Weiss, and I were writing partners for several years during the late 80's/ early 90's. At one point, fairly late in production, David and Don brought me in to help with script revisions. We gave it our best shot, but Don could be his own worst enemy when it came to story (as he was always the first to admit).

    I can't say I'm a fan of the film (I've never even seen the final cut), but I know Dave and Don would get a kick out of knowing it has its own little fan base.
