Medusa is too much. She is too real. She is too cruel.
September 13, 2012
The songs aren't up to par, Madame Medusa comes off as a cut-rate Cruella De Vil (no surprise, since the 101 Dalmatians villainess was at one point discussed for this picture), and Newhart's Bernard ranks as one of Disney's dullest toon protagonists.

Efficiently short, charming, mildly scary in unimportant ways, and occasionally very funny.

The mice that soared.

Buy it for the little 'uns, but don't necessarily watch it with them.

A more than tolerable effort.
