    While the animation is nowhere like today's, the story is very powerful. Be aware, and this is a spoiler, it doesn't end well for the curlew and his mate. This has no happy ending, though it starts out cute and fun like the usual children's programming. I wouldn't really recommend this for kids under 10.
