Has a screenplay that's among the most literate ever written in the English language for what certainly would appear, from all the evidence, to be a "children's movie".

Would the act of giving The Last Unicorn an average rating be tantamount to kicking a puppy?

Holds a forlorn, poetic beauty that separates it from the more conventional family-targeted animated features of its time—or any era, for that matter.

We don't see stories like this anymore. In point of fact, we never did... which makes this movie all the more wonderful.

Nearly everyone who waxes rhapsodic over The Last Unicorn starts off noting how they 'grew up' on the film.

Some horrific moments (the mark of the best fairytales) and some sublimely witty lines.

A story filled with genuine sweetness and mystery.

Weighted with moments of surprising power yet undone by crazed-crank nickelodeon pacing.

The standard 'quest' material that most fantasy is made of, but in this case heroics and spectacle are secondary to drama
