    Here is the wiki entry for you. I’ve never heard of it by this name either…

    For me, Christmas would not be complete without a viewing of The Snowman. I showed it to my non-British girlfriend one year and she had basically the same reaction as when I showed her Doctor Who. “You show this to children? This is why you have so many problems.”

    Smallgust — It should be Smallgust. No reason.

    Geez, I’m from Connecticut, and I’m glad I’m only just hearing about this “Leather man” until now.

    I lived in CT for 18 years, and I have never heard of the Leather man once. We do have a haunted house in my hometown of Simsbury, CT. It used to be a Chart House but then the name was changed to Abigail’s after Abigail Pettibone, a young woman who was killed in the house in the late 18th century and is claimed to haunt Abigail’s Tavern.

    Most Don Bluth films have a very distinctive look. I always found, even as a kid, the designs of many of his characters to be really lacking in personality. Everything was just so over-the-top “cute”: disconcertingly long eyelashes and puffy cheeks, and really fleshy – characters always looked like they were made of dough. And then usually given some sort of nondescript piece of clothing like slippers or a hat because CUTE. And that’s all they were. The design of the dog Hero in “Thumbelina”, to me, is sort of the quintessential Don Bluth character design. A weird patchwork of discordant, stereotypically “cute” attributes that don’t come together in any truly cohesive way. That’s not to say I don’t have a soft spot for Bluth films. “A Troll in Central Park” is objectively terrible, but I kind of dig the stinkers like “Pebble and the Penguin” and “Rock-a-Doodle” in a nostalgic sort of way.

      Secret of Nimh and Land Before Time are probably some of his best. As a kid i was obsessed with All Dogs Go to Heaven, but upon watching it years later as an adult i was horrified by how little sense that film made.
      Anyways Bluth film’s most distinguishing characteristic is probably Dom DeLuise as every doofy character.

    Man, that Stuart guy is TERRIBLE at doing Netflix.

  7. Woah! I’m really enjoying the template/theme of
    this site. It’s simple, yet effective. A lot of times it’s difficult to get that “perfect balance” between superb usability
    and visual appearance. I must say you’ve done a very good
    job with this. In addition, the blog loads super fast for me on Opera.
    Superb Blog!
