      Great film to share with younger viewers. Although it is a bit dated, it is a fun family Christmas movie. Jimmy Durante is worth the price of admission.

          Comments about this product:

          I recently viewed this on TCM and was thoroughly charmed. This is a perfect gift for Christmas or any time of the year. The movie begins around Christmas but then moves throughout the course of a year or so, so it's message of perseverance, friendship. sacrificial giving, honor and honesty is great viewing any time of year. Rupert's animation is a bit crude, but for 1950 no doubt it was "hi-tech." Besides, who couldn't fall in love with a Scottish kilt wearing squirrel named Rupert, doing a highland jig?!
