  1. It always impressed me how different the TV renditions of the stories were compared to the original book versions - naturally, not even Uncle Grizzly can get away with *everything* on television nowadays...

    Even so, I do remember getting hooked by this episode first time, which had lead to a fond following since. And delighted more to see - or rather recognise - some of the animators from HA's other shows, going by their styles. Would be grand to know who animated what prior specific scenes =)
