Last week Zeus ordered this DVD for me and it arrived today! It is a wonderful animated movie narrated by Ringo Starr with vocals by Harry Nilsson. It is about a little round-headed boy Oblio who lived in the Pointed Village where by law everything had to have a point. There is a strong moral to the story about not judging others who are different. It came out in 1971. Athena and Eris grew up listening to the LP and watched it every time came on television. A few years ago I found a VHS tape and also the CD soundtrack. Now the grandkids are all watching and loving it.
Littlest Ms. Eris had the words to this song memorized by the time she was two and now asks for it whenever we go down for a nap. I sang it to her continuously for the first six months of her life to keep myself sane and also to keep her alive (explanation will come in October).
If you click here you will meet the Pointless Man, just one of the many interesting characters in the cartoon.
Now it's time to pop some popcorn.
