The DVD was delivered quicker than stated and was in perfect condition. It played perfect also. The problem was that when it was committed commercially to DVD, they removed the lovely forward by the then YOUNG David Bowie and replace it with the aged unshaven listless acting David Bowie who repeated the words, but it wasn't the same.
Classic for the family2/6/2008
My girls have seen this since they were little. It is a classic, heart warming story. It is a tradition to watch each Christmas season.
Very charming animation set to wonderful music.
