Trivia

For budgetary reasons, on The Magic Roundabout television series, Eric Thompson provided the voices for ALL the characters. In this spin-off feature film he decided to not voice the character of Buxton (the blue cat) and instead gave the role to actress Fenella Fielding as he wanted that character to have it's own distinctive voice to echo it's own mysterious and sinister personality.

Ermintrude: [to Bryan] Hello, dear creature.
Bryan: Ooh... it's a bit blue, isn't it? What is it?
Ermintrude: It's abstract.
[sings]
Ermintrude: I'm in the mood for blue...
Bryan: Hey, you never told me you could paint.
Ermintrude: Well, you never asked me, dear thing, did you? The muse came upon me like it does, and I felt blue.

Best animated film I've ever seen
20 April 2006 | by adeswilliamsSee all my reviews

Surprisingly dark film that i haven't seen since my child hood.As a child i would only ever watch this and star wars and now looking back both these films are still amongst the best I've seen. A lot better than the new one. Even though this is a children's film it is viewable by adults just as much and should be remembered as a cult classic Would love to see a DVD release of this film as should top any collection of animated films and it is hilarious in parts. Take the weirdness of Donnie darko the characters from mighty boosh and the animation and humour of Wallace and gromit and your part of the Way there. This film is simply the most imaginative film of all time and has to be seen.
