Holy Crap! You're right! That just ruined my childhood...

But he did "Rock-a-Doodle", which I love, even though it's so bad...

Curses. Now I must head for the YouTube and listen to "Roll Back the Rock (To the Dawn of Time)." John Goodman's singing voice needs to be implemented in more of his work...I love non-Disney 80s-90s movies SO. MUCH.

And speaking of All Dogs Go to Heaven...Rest In Peace, Dom DeLuise. You have been and always will be...my favorite weiner-dog.
I'm Tooch now.

My Facebook status a while back was "Travis feels that wherever Dom DeLuise has gone, it's probably Don Bluth Themed."

Seriously, the guy voiced Itchy the weiner dog, Stanley in A Troll in Central Park, Jeremy in The Secret of NIMH, AND Tiger the cat in An American Tale. (Not to mention Koosy in Dexter's Lab and Fagin in Oliver and Company)

I was more shocked when I found out that not only was Burt Reynolds the voice of Charlie in the first movie, but Charlie was "designed specifically with Burt Reynolds in mind for the role"... That's just cool. Also, him & Dom had worked together before in Cannonball Run, and they wanted to record their lines together. Most of their ad-libbed stuff was said to be better than the original script.

She also did the voice of Anne Marie in All Dogs go to Heaven. It was nuts, I was actually watching it a couple weeks ago, and I wondered what the voice actress was doing, sadly to find out that she was killed. Terrible story :\ Poor kid.

Also, The Pagemaster wasn't a Bluth Film either. It was a Joe Johnston film, AKA the guy who directed "Honey I shrunk the Kids," "The Rocketeer," "October Sky," and will be directing the new Captain America movie.

It just goes to show how many awesome animated movies there were that weren't Disney in the 80s/90s.

Also, has anyone ever read the actual "Mrs. Frisby and the Rats of NIMH" book by Robert O'Brien that the movie was based on? Amazing book!




Aaaa up until very recently, I thought that Ferngully was a Don Bluth film, as did my friends. We were surprised to find it wasn't XD


And I have read the book!!!! I think that we had to read it in school, either that, or it was from the school library, but it was a really lovely book to read :)

Fff, I read it before I saw the movie. Good book. Good movie.

*adds self to the list of people who grew up loving Don Bluth* But not more than Disney, in my case. They were pretty much equal.
