| It would have been better with some narration
The clips of animal scenes from the silent era to what was then the present (1976) are cute enough, but it certainly could have used some documentary style narration. The clips of the individual films are certainly long enough and contain some great animal moments, including those of the original Rin Tin Tin, National Velvet, and Flipper. However, imagine "That's Entertainment" with absolutely no narration at all. It's great to have the individual performances, but some context is what turns a show consisting of a series of clips such as this into a memorable documentary. Thus if you are familiar with the animal stars and the films showcased this is a fun trip down memory lane. However, kids probably just won't get it if they haven't already seen the old films from which this movie takes its clips.
