Synopsis by Eleanor Mannikka
This undistinguished fantasy might entertain the moppet set but would fail as adult fare. The story is based on a French film titled Once Upon a Time and centers around an imaginary island that is run by animals. Among these creatures is a chimpanzee with evil intentions who wants nothing more than to destroy the island paradise by means of something resembling an atomic blast. While there may be some analogies to recent world history involved somewhere in this story, and even given that the animals are well-trained and entertaining, there is still not enough substance underneath the action to reach past the youngest viewers.
