Metacritic Score

    Miami Herald Bill Cosford

    G-rated material with the snap of a good story and animated artwork that often sparkles. [01 Dec 1982, p.D6]

    Time Out

    Rather groovy little fable, based on Peter Beagle's fantasy about a unicorn's search for company.

    The Globe and Mail (Toronto) Rick Groen

    Gone from the glittering original are most of the charm and all of the humor, deflating a bright balloon into little more than the rubbery flatness of a Saturday-morning cartoon.
