One of my favorites as a kid. The remake isn't as good. The
difference is not the effects but the writing was much better in
the original. My age might also have something to do with it.
The one thing that would have improved the original is to
eliminate the jerkiness in the claymation. I guess it is one of
the drawbacks of the technique.
