In this engaging animated children's story from director Sanae Yamamoto a young and very brave boy spends three years receiving special instructions from a hermit in the woods. After the three years are up, the little boy is possessed of magic powers that will help him subdue the source of unhappiness and evil in the forest -- a wicked witch. As these exponents of white and black magic go at it, the animals in the forest line up on the side of Magic Boy and help him out whenever they can.
