I first watched this movie as a boy. I didn't really understand it. I was fascinated by the idea of having a cartoon in the real world, but I always remember feeling dumbfounded as I tried to comprehend the plot. As I watched it as an adult, I felt like I was much more in the loop. In todays standards it is a solid B movie, but if you like those oldie type movies that seem to use the kind of texture that computers can't create, then this movie is for you.
