Good time for all, kept the kids busy for hours.....
12 March 2005 | by half-rabbitSee all my reviews

An enjoyable animation, done in the old style of cells and paint. This is not as "pretty" or crisp as a computer generated cartoon/animation but has a lot more character because of this (which I personally enjoy). The artistry is creatively executed with beautifully painted water colour backgrounds and brightly coloured animations that is bound to amaze. Great character ideas, as there is a mythical beast, a Bunyip, an urban legend of Australia I believe, and an eccentric man as the river boat driver. They both make for a very amusing time. It has an exciting plot, and an original musical score, that will keep the kids enthralled time after time. I recommend it for adults and children alike.
