The story about Balto and how he saved Nome, Alaska is a wonderful and moving part of history. Unfortunately this movie has changed the facts around and left out the humans who also helped. I suppose it's the adult in me coming out and I should just see it for what it was intended, that is, a movie for the very young. Read More

Editors Note
Note Based on the true adventure of an Alaskan sled dog named Balto who trekked across the frozen tundra to deliver a serum to a remote village in 1925, BALTO is a heartwarming animated film that features the voices of Kevin Bacon and Bridget Fonda. Balto, who is half wolf and half dog and therefore an outcast among the other dogs, must endure the treacherous attacks of the evil Steele as he tries to lead the precious cargo of serum through the dangerous Alaskan winter to save the village of Nome from diphtheria as well as win the love of Jenna, a female dog with whom he has fallen in love.
