Another reason for the enduring popularity of this VHS is the brilliant casting of voice talent. The chief characters' voices are played by some of America's most prolific actors of the early 1970s, including Rex Allen, Paul Lynde, Agnes Moorehead, Debbie Reynolds, Henry Gibson, and Pamelyn Ferdin. Don't remember some of these people?Read more ›
This is a charming adaptation of E.B. White's classic children's tale, with some precious dialog, and even though the animation isn't up to Disney standards, it's still leagues above Pokemon standards.
And the casting! Oh my, whomever put Paul Lynde in the role of Templeton the Rat gets my vote as casting agent of the century (closely followed by the person responsible for Don Rickles as Mr. Potato Head in Toy Story...but I digress). The movie could hardly be improved upon.
Buy it, enjoy it, treasure it. It's a marvelous tale you'll enjoy over and over again.
Forget the upcoming remake with Dakota Fanning. This will always remain the definitive screen version of CHARLOTTE'S WEB.
The animation is obviously not up to modern standards, but is by no means weak. It is a shame that Disney seems to dominate children's videos because this is a true masterpiece. It is not nearly as sacharine as Disney cartoons. The story deals frankly with the sometimes harsh reality of farm life. The film teaches about life, death, friendship and the passage of time.
The musical numbers are beautifully done and the voices are perfect. The narrator adds so much and Paul Lynd is a terrific Templeton.
This is a fantastic story well told. I will always cry at the last line- It is not often someone comes along who is a true friend and a good writer;Charlotte was both. This is great for kids and anyone who ever enjoyed this wodnerful tale!
