I am amazed that with all the new and glossy DVDs we own, that The White Seal is such a huge hit with my 4 year old daughter. She's never asked to watch the new computer animated Care Bears movie or the colorful My Little Pony movie over and over like this one. She loves the white seal and is interested in the story. I originally bought this, Mowgli's Brothers, and Rikki Tikki Tavi because Rikki was a HUGE favorite with my 1st grade class decades ago when I was little. So when my daughter, wanting something new, went through my DVD collection and asked to watch these stories, I was curious how they'd hold up next to all the new kid stuff. But it is facinating how classics never die and will be forever loved by children no matter how out of date they look. This is definitely old style animation and not shiny and glossy like some of the Disney clean ups, but it is is clear enough and a joy to watch-- great story and narration. No sarcasm or crazy weird animated segments-- just a good straight forward story.

Of the three half-hour Jungle Book adaptations that Chuck Jones did in the 1980s, this is undoubtedly the best, the story of Kotick, the white seal who learns about the world, including man's hunting of his brethren, and searches for a place where the seals can live unmolested. This has Jones' signature style about it, but is immensely true to the Kipling story, which is narrated by Roddy McDowall, and a highlight of the production is Dean Elliot's beautiful score, adapted from Beethoven's Sixth Symphony.

Along with Kotick's story, included on this disk is Jones' The Cricket in Times Square, a faithful adaptation of the George Selden children's novel that has not been out of print since its original publication. It's the charming story of Chester, a country cricket who finds a new home in the Times Square subway station in NYC and who discovers he can play any musical piece he hears once. Violinist Israel Baker provides Chester's unique "voice."

This DVD is practically perfect. There are some dust specks and flecks visible; however the colors and lines are bright and clean and the sound is good. The only downside to this DVD is the interminable previews that you are automatically subjected to. Hint: pressing the menu button on your DVD remote won't help, but once the previews start, you CAN skip through them by pressing the chapter button until you get to the actual menu.

Chuck Jones brings to life to classic tales that are sure to be loved by the entire family. The stories incorporate exciting elements that both engage children and entertain adults much like its Looney Tunes roots while also focusing on more substansive themes that will teach and develop young minds. Traditionally animated in the classic style that was pioneered by Jones, the vibrant colors and sheer beauty capture the true spirit of his animation genius. If you are a lover of children, animals, animation, or just classic tales then this is the DVD for you.

the White seal a classic from my childhood that they occasionally played throughout my early public school and a delight to two children of any age. Way better than the garbage that this last generation and the newer generations are being fed on.

I love the book cricket in times square and got the movie to go with it. The movie is very different than the book. Our favorite parts - Sai Fong is not in the movie at all. It is short, 20 minutes or so of actual playing time for Cricket.

This is the same movie we all remember from our childhood. I bought it as a nostalgic gift for a friend and watching was a great stroll down memory lane. The next generation of kids will love it as well.
