Seminal TV special about two groups of children, one in New York City and the other in Moscow, who befriend each other over a satellite connection and find common ground. The Muppets and several celebrities make a cameo.
Musical anthology TV series for family viewing. The pilot episode, "Flower of the Dawn," is inspired by the classic Brothers Grimm tale "Jorinde and Joringel." Original songs include "Welcome to the Cuckoo's Nest" and "It's All About Me."
I'm finding it interesting that everyone keeps calling this a "movie". I guess that is because we just don't have variety shows, and "specials" on television like we used to.
This wasn't a movie. It was a television special, with numerous guest stars, which gave a wonderful message that we could all still use today. Girls don't HAVE to be stuck in a house, dependent on a husband, or they CAN be in a home, dependent on a husband, but enjoying that role. Boys don't HAVE to never cry, or always play with war toys.
There is a reason this special, aired one time in 1974, is still remembered so well today. I was 17 when it aired, and while a little old for it, it was still a good show.
