I stumble upon this on youtube and gave it a watch, an anime movie from the 1970s is really charming

The story is simliar to the book, Thumbelina no bigger then a thumb made friends with the animals during her adventure.

Character designs is made by the late talented Osamu Tezuka. Famous for Kimba the White Lion and the very well known Astro Boy (Mighty Atom) and the backgrounds are just so very beautiful, they feel magical.

I can't say anything bad about it, its just a charming anime movie from the 70s
If you love fairy tales give this a watch.

It seems that during the seventies and eighties, practically every Western fairy tale (particularly those from Hans Cristian Andersen) were ultimately made into an animated movie by the Japanese - and Thumbelina is no exception.

A very light and carefree adaptation of the classic tale, this movie is aimed at a very young audience, where there is almost no real conflict and eventually everyone lives happily ever after. The story is a bit rambling, the artwork and artwork are serviceable, about the only thing that is really notable about this production are the Osamu Tezuka character designs. Not a bad read more
