I love to read books (I am a literary woman),I'm a cat lover; and also...I am autistic (but and I'm damn proud of it). And as for movies, I am an animation buff (mostly 2D), and do I love literary films (films based on books...especailly books I have).
Reading,Writing and World Mythology
Animation that I love:
Gulliver's Travels (1939),
Disney's Sleeping Beauty,
An American Tail,and...
Kung Fu Panda
I'm afraid there is nothing else to say about this special other than I really love it! I love it better than "A Flintstone Christmas Carol," when it comes to a Christmas special about a stage version of Dickens' holiday story.
So anyway, I really love this special with it's really beautiful story and wonderful animation.
I thought Rankin/Bass did a good job in creating another Christmas classic, with the soundtrack, the story line, the moral (which I do not mind at all); Roger Miller (voice from Disney's Robin Hood) was superb. There is even some actual history in this in regards to the Roman Empire. So overall, I love this TV special.
Well the story starts with Garfield and Odie, dressed as pirates on Halloween night, and went off tricking-or-treating. Then by a river dock, Garfield spied a row-boat and houses across the river, and thought they could row across the river to the houses to get more candy. But the row-boat took Garfield and Odie down the river, and landed them on an island with an old house on it. Inside the house, they meet a spooky old man who tells them that the house is haunted by pirate ghosts who buried a treasure under the house 100 years ago, vowing to come back for it that very night.
So anyway I love this Halloween special and I loved how Lou Rawls sang the "trick or treat" song, he's got an awesome singing voice; the other songs are catchy too.
It's also a great film about facing your fears, like Ukaraiah did to save Whoville by jumping in The Grinch's wagon of spooks, to stall for time. Now that scene REALLY scared the hell out of me as a kid. I would like point the interesting critters of Punker's Pond. The Gree Grumps like pink cats living in tree stumps (I am a cat lover), but I wonder what does the bottom half of an Hakken-Krakke look like? a seal's body? or the body of an Plesiosaurus? well I don't know, but it never hurts to use your imagination.
