I tip my hat to you, one legend to another!

People are reacting way to harshly to this movie. I repeat, ITS A MOVIE! This movie has great animation ,good morals, and deep thought processes. Yes, it is a bit more mature than most animated movies, but it is still fine for 8 year olds or mature 6 year olds. This is fun for everyone with western lizards.

Beautiful movie

I watched this movie when I was around 6 and I absolutely adored it. I love the animation style and I really liked the concept. I’m a grown up now and let me say people hated on this movie then and still hate on it now because it was “inappropriate.” In reality, little kids aren’t gonna get 90% of the “inappropriate” jokes and the smoking/drinking thing is minor. It’s no more inappropriate for kids then a episode of Tom and Jerry or Loonitunes. It’s a great movie overall and it saddens me how much people hate on it to be honest.
