Long but rewarding.
64/100. Way overlong but it certainly is creative and imaginative. Impressive special effects, perhaps not by today's standards but it must have been enthralling in 1962. It is entertaining and good for the whole family, although I can't see a lot of children being able to sit through over two hours of this. The production is impressive. It won the Oscar for best costume design and was nominated for both art direction, music score and cinematography, all of which were quite good. A lot of money went into the production, and it shows. It is divided into four segments. The Puppetoons are particularly enjoyable and the part I think children would enjoy the most.
