Join young Hans Christian Anderson as he daydreams his way to adventure through his most famous fairy tales. In “The Little Mermaid” everyone’s favorite girl of the sea must triumph over the evil Sea Witch with a little help from Father Neptune. In “The Emperor’s New Clothes”, a pair of villainous tailors create a surprising new outfit for a gullible king. The fun continues with stories including Thumbelina, The Pie-man. From the creators of Frosty the Snowman, Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer and the Wacky world of Mother Goose.
A combination of real life and animation of the 1960s, this is a classic. This movie takes the viewer on the adventure with young Christian as he runs away from home and dreams of four stories. The story rocks back and forth between live action and animation with the sandman narrating. It tends to be on the long side and not as captivating as “Frosty the Snowman” or “Rudolph the Red Nosed” Reindeer movies. But it is still charming and we award the Dove “Family-Approved” Seal to this DVD.
