    I first saw The animated feature film version of

    "Tubby The Tuba"on "The Fox Five Kids' Club's"

    Christmas TV Special on December 25,1990.

    It's the worst interpretation of the story that

    I ever had the misfortune of watching.

    The film's plot is too long and the cast is..

    they don't really represent the plot very well.

    Mr.Van Dyke is not the best choice for

    "Tubby"(I would have chosen Chuck McCann

    or Red Skelton for the voice),Ms.Pearl Bailey

    is not the best choice for "Mrs.Elephant" and

    David Wayne is not the best choice for"Pee Wee

    The Picolo".

    The only memorable characters are"Celeste's"

    mean landlady(voice by Ms.Hermomine Gingold

    ..God Bless Her Soul)and in his last performance

    ..Mr.Cyril Richard as the voice of "The Frog".

    The film uses the plots of three "Tubby"

    stories"Tubby The Tuba","Tubby At The Circus"

    and"The Story Of Celeste"..that's too much!

    When you use too many plots that are

    done in an uneven vingette presentation.

    You're bound to bore and annoy your


    Personally,I'd rather watch the 1947

    George Pal/"Puppetoon"version of"Tubby The


    Mr.Tripp may not have cared for the

    short George Pal/"Puppetoon"edition of

    his children's musical story?

    But..the Pal/"Puppetoon"version best

    represented his tale of the little musical

    instrument..who want to perform his own

    melody with the orchastra.
