I think this movie didn't get nearly the recognition that it should have gotten. It was one of the last really good traditional animated movies done before the wave of 3-d movies began. It brought back the nostalgic days of the old Warner Bros. cartoons and was animated with just as much care and life. The character designs were very vibrant and just full of life and movement thanks to the skill set of the animators and director Mark Dindal. If you're into typical animated musicals, 30's nostalgia, and anthropormorphic animals, then this is the one for you. Here's a You tube link to get a little idea of how great the animation in the movie is if you haven't seen it already.
