Hi all! I'm a newbie and I totally tried the search option before I asked this, but I couldn't find what I was looking for.

For a month or so, a cartoon movie popped into my head out of nowhere that I remember watching on more than one occasion as a child. Unfortunately I vaguely remember the movie. I don't even remember what channel I saw it on. Maybe it was HBO or something... anyways, here are the snippets of info that I can recall about this cartoon movie:

An artist/painter had to save some sort of "fantasy land" from dark, gloomy, bad machines. And I think toadstool/mushroom people were bad also and tried to keep the artist/painter captive .

That's it. That's all I remember.

If anyone can help me and not think I'm crazy that would be awesome!

Thanks! :D

      It was during the mid to late 80s.

      I remember watching the movie during the day and night, so I'm not sure if it had a set time to air.

        The movie your thinking of is called The Elm-Chanted Forest. About a painter that falls alseep under a magical elm tree. When he wakes up he finds he can talk to the forest animals. He helps them stop the evil Catus king frm destroying the forest. It's on dvd, I rented it from Netflix a couple months ago.
        I don't know about you, Miss Kitty, but I feel so much... yummier

          Ha, I sort of remember that movie from the days my family had HBO. Kitty, you're like the queen of remembering movies. Good stuff.

            OMG!! That's it!

            Now I have proof that I'm not crazy! Everytime I asked someone I knew they always gave that "your-crazy-and-I'm-not-talking-to-you-anymore" look.

            Thank you so much, I'll have to rent it! It's been YEARS since I've seen it. :wink:

              your head is full of dreams
              to turn the world around
              but all your fancy dream
