Bambi loses his parents, Dumbo gets separated from his mother and Fantasia... wow, that night on bald mountain is the scariest thing I've ever seen!

I wonder how they made a movie I see I a missing something by not going to movies.

    ReplyDelete
  110. Every Christmas Eve, here in Sweden, you can see "Karl-Bertil Jonssons Jul" (The Christmas of Karl-Bertil Jonsson) on the TV. It´s about a boy who loves Robin Hood. He works at the postoffice, helping to sort out all the cristmas gifts. When he sees a address to someone he knows is rich, he puts that gift in another sack. "To take from the rich and give to the poor". To make a long story short, it all ends happy. It´s a cartoon and I love the characters in this little movie!
