In 15th century Paris, Clopin the puppeteer tells the story of Quasimodo, the misshapen but gentle-souled bell ringer of Notre Dame, who was nearly killed as a baby by Claude Frollo, the Minister of Justice. But Frollo was forced by the Archdeacon of Notre Dame to raise Quasimodo as his own. Now a young man, Quasimodo is hidden from the world by Frollo in the belltower of the cathedral. But during the Festival of Fools, Quasimodo, cheered on by his gargoyle friends Victor, Hugo, and Laverne, decides to take part in the festivities, where he meets the lovely gypsy girl Esmeralda and the handsome soldier Phoebus. The three of them find themselves ranged against Frollo's cruelty and his attempts to destroy the home of the gypsies, the Court of Miracles. And Quasimodo must desperately defend both Esmeralda and the very cathedral of Notre Dame. Written by

The original film The Hunchback of Notre Dame was one of the saddest and
most dramatic films ever. Now, Victor Hugo's original vision is put with
color from disney, and it is still dramatic and sad, but it amazingly
into the Dinsey family fold, even if it is erotic, killing and weird.
fun in voices from Thomas Hulce, Demi Moore, kevin Kline, Tonyt Jay and
Jason Alexander as a gargoyle. One of the better animated films to come
around in the 90's. A+
