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 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.
