Tippy Top
13 July 2006 | by HedySorecoSee all my reviews

An emotional child-hood memory . . . yes, that's what "Tippy Top" is to me , a story of a sensitive, adorable boy with an "imaginary" friend, "Tippy Top". I have not seen this since I was 11 years old, and although I am now 56, I have never forgotten this beautiful story. Ronny Howard, ("Opie" from "The Andy Griffith Show) is the young boy who befriends "Tippy Top", and "Tippy Top" is lovingly played by, Red Buttons. Red Buttons has just passed away, and a flood of memories of "Tippy Top" has once again, re-surfaced. If it is available anywhere to view, I strongly recommend seeing it, for children of all ages .... up to age 106 and beyond. They just don't make 'em like this, anymore.
