I loved that movie as a kid, and I was surprised to hear recently that it was considered a disaster for Disney. All I know is I had all the toys.


it totally was a disaster, nearly broke the studio as i recall

back then animation was considered dead or dying so they were trying to move into live action and ride the star wars wave

a few years later tron was a flop too, though it was another flick i loved

It was Disney's first PG outing.
