Synopsis by Mark Deming

In this adaptation of the classic children's book by Marcus Pfister, a beautiful fish takes great pride in his brightly-colored scales, which are unlike those of any other fish in the ocean. One of his friends asks for one of his scales, and the fish refuses; however, he soon comes to learn that sharing with a friend is better than hoarding for yourself. Also included in this home video is "Dazzle the Dinosaur," based on another story by Pfister, in which Dazzle and his friend Maia try to win back their home from a greedy dragon. The Rainbow Fish was produced as part of the series Doors of Wonder, an anthology of screen versions of acclaimed stories for young people.
