The Mouse And His Child (1977)


The Mouse And His Child is an animated tale of wind-up toys who go on a journey to become free and independent and along the way face off against some vicious rats.

I first saw this movie in the 1980s. I saw it under the title, “The Extraordinary Adventures of the Mouse and His Child”. I cannot remember which channel was shown on, but I regretted not having recorded it and picked up a VHS copy in the 1990s. Recently I realized that my VHS tape was busted, so I went to buy it on DVD and….nothing!

Lucky for me, someone was nice enough to upload this “classic” to YouTube for everyone to enjoy.
