I like this series titled "Clay Classic" by Will Vinton quite a bit. The animation is amazing, the color, the voices, they all work great. The script follows the original short story by Washington Irving pretty faithfully. My hands down favorites in the series so far is The First Christmas (actually 3 films on 1 disc), and Martin the Cobbler. I have also seen Michael the Visitor and I hope to order some of the other titles soon.

I first saw this movie in the early 80s. When I had children I picked it up on VHS. When I saw it on DVD I had to have it. Kids love it but so do adults. My adult friends ask me to play it for them. I watch it whenever I need a pick-me-up or inspiration. BUY! BUY! BUY!

Years ago I showed this as a projected film to my 7th grade students with good effect. The colors and animation are superb. Its theme is a welcome antidote to the harsh judgment children often pass on those who don't fit a common mold. Rip is a misfit among the solemn Dutchmen of his time and place. His gifts are not practical, but rather sympathy, warmth, and song. When Rip swallows a magic draught his world unravels and swirls about him in brightly colored clay bits. It is a visually impressive and artistically astute performance. His world is stitched back together with a new slant when a wise old mountain gives him some advice about values along the lines of the lilies of the field. Very highly recommended.

A classical movie that every kid must have. A story with sensitivity and good humor. Should be in any language.

This is another great childhood program I will keep in my movie library till the day I die. I can't forget how I felt when I first saw this many years ago. This one of many Clay Classic movie should be digitized and put in HD format for the new generation of kids and adults to enjoy.

I had this movie on VHS and watched it until the tape broke. Not because I watched it incessantly as a child, but because I kept revisiting it to enjoy the scenery, the story, the music, and ALL of the ridiculous creative imagery when Rip is not himself. It's great. I consider this truly appropriate for all ages because the lesson is universal - self-acceptance and joy. Honestly I put this on when I have a crap day and feel so much better about the world.

And for anyone with small kids, the music is varied enough that it's not really earworm material and complex enough to appeal to adults. So if they want to watch this 10 times in a row, you won't want to pull your hair out.

This is a third rate story someone has taken and used from the Original Rip Van Winkle by Washington Irving. Any part of it actually coming from Irving, must be an accident.
