    Perfect. The voice of the narrator, the story, the details, the animation style, the tinkling piano... charming and witty. One of my favourites.

    Really enjoyed the subtleties of this film, I've always admired Gerald Potterton for his ability to add detail to films. One thing I'd really like get some opinions on is how his use of cel animation enhances the film?

    I always liked stephen leacock for his intelligent humour. I liked the film too as a pictorial narrative. I would prefer however a more animated imagination V.N.Laxminarayana,Mysore (India)
