Any questions? Enjoy the nightmares…

    Actually, in fairness to Ralph Bakshi, it’s more like proof that Krantz Films were cheap bastards – and I knew that from watching ‘The Marvel Superheroes’…

    I always thought of them as the ‘Grow-a-Goons’ – I keep picturing an assembly line in the back of the castle.

Although I will still confess to having a fondness for ‘Max: The 2000-year-old Mouse’…
