Editorial Reviews

Presenting Walt Disney Mini Classics... a timeless series of classic tales told through captivating music and brilliant Disney animation. Viewers of all ages will treasure this magical collection of Disney animated storytelling at its very best! // A poor young boy braves the big city to sell the family donkey, Small One. But there doesn't seem to be anyone who can offer a warm home and tender care to the beloved beast, and the boy becomes thoroughly disheartened. When a gentle stranger appears, in need of a very special journey, a bright star shines reassuringly in the December sky. The Small One is an animated Christmas treasure, and a touching, inspiring tale for all ages!

I've loved this story ever since my parents bought me the story record of it years ago. I recently started searching for it, either on VHS or CD. I'd just about given up hope when we stumbled across it at the video rental store on a new release Disney video called 'Countdown to Christmas'. It is the last story on the video, and it is there in full, with all the wonderful songs included.
This is a wonderful short story from Disney that gives a new perspective to the Nativity story - from the viewpoint of the little donkey that carried Mary to Bethlehem, and the boy who owned him.
The songs are lovely to listen to, especially 'Small One' and 'Friendly Face'. There is a charm and warmth in this tale that I find is lacking in many of the animations that Disney are producing of late.
This is something that is well worth having, if you can locate it.

I can't say enough about this short. Unfortunatly, Disney announced officially, they have no plans to bring this short to DVD. Which saddens me. They plan to hide this masterpiece in the catacombs while they release mindless films like Home on the Range. I hope that eventually, with the support of Small One's greatest fans, we can see to it that there is a Small One DVD one day. (...)

Unfortunately I have only recently discovered that Disney Productions have stopped doing any more videos of "The Small One". I have been trying to get hold of this beautiful Christmas story all about a young boy and his old donkey. This video is suitable for both young and old and ideal to watch especially at Christmas time with all the family. It is a video that every household should not be without.

One of Don Bluth's (Secret of Nimh, All Dogs Go To Heaven)earlier films, THE SMALL ONE tells the story of a tiny donkey and his boy. When the donkey becomes too old to carry the heavy loads that pay for his feed, his young master is forced to find him a new home... the market place is filled with people who are perfectly willing to work the little donkey to death, but after several near escapes, and almost giving up hope, that someone special comes along...
Small One's message is quiet, but is ably put across... Gentleness is a strength too... I've seen this movie several times, and each time I find tears on my cheeks as the credits roll.

I have watched "The Small One" every Christmas since before I can remember, and it still makes me cry. The message is simple -- like the song says "There's a place for each small one" -- but one that we all need to hear. Don Bluth's films are at the top of my list for their mastery of storytelling. Although this is a short, it is as emotionaly satisfying as one of his full length features. It is a gem worth tracking down for kids and grown-ups alike.

For those of you who would love to see "The Small One" on DVD, there is hope. While it isn't released on its own, it is being released on Classic Holiday Stories, Vol. 9. Honestly, the whole DVD is a bit of a treat, I think kids today are missing out on some real classics and I was totally pleased to finally find "The Small One" on DVD, my little VHS copy from the TV wasn't going to last much longer.
