Luath (a young Labrador retriever), Bodge (an aging bull terrier) and a feisty Siamese cat named Tao are the best of friends. They are staying temporarily with a kindly man while their family (mom, dad, sister and brother) are away from home. Despite being well-treated, Luath misses his human family and decides to travel the 200 miles back home. Neither senior Bodge nor Tao care to leave their comfortable new home but they can't leave Luath so all three embark on their incredible journey.
The movie is filmed so beautifully with lush colors and gorgeous scenery. The three animals are humanized with the best qualities of mankind--loyalty, love, compassion, patience and respect. Any of us, would be lucky to have a friend like one of these beautiful animals. Throughout the story a man with classic Disney narrator voice explains their journey. It doesn't seem like old Bodge will make it, but his pals stop to let him rest as needed and their journey continues. They survive by hunting a small animal or bird (maybe the only mildly distressing part of this upbeat film) and often it is the kindness of humans that helps them survive. It's especially sweet to see how Bodge and Tao have bonded. Then there are the two bear cubs that come to greet the trio and play but wait till Mama Bear shows up.
Here is deliciously delightful classic film that stands the test of time. It was filmed in 1963, so we know the three animal actors live on in this beautiful story. If you love animals, you won't resist the charm of THE INCREDIBLE JOURNEY. It's beautiful, well-written and full of joy. It's worth watching over and over especially when you need a bit of a "lift" from life's routine.
I recalled this story about the phenomenon of animals who find their way home. This version is better than the newer one.
