My favorite myth-typed character, put in one of the most depressing Rankin-Bass movies ever made. The villain is reminiscent of Burgermister Misterburger. Why are all of their villains German? Anyways, the story is a sad one, but the intro and outro are a very lame way to start the story.
Steam-powered everything in the castle was a nice way to make the movie more original than the others.
