This was one of my favorite movies as a kid. I was a bit concerned this wouldn't be good quality or the right movie and was afraid it might be a pirated version or something since I couldn't find it anywhere else or advertised by Disney. I inquired about this movie on one of Disney's facebook pages and was directed here so I sucked it up and spent the money. (Wasn't too crazy to spend so much on a TV movie from the 80's but given the sentiment...) The quality of the movie it's self is pretty good given it's an 80's TV movie. I would have expected some special features given the price though. This is the movie only; it doesn't even include the prelude that would have accompanied it when it aired on TV. It does have closed captioning however, which these types of releases often forgo. This is a movie the whole family can enjoy. Unlike many kids movies today that make "adult themed" jokes, this movie has humor and punchlines you wouldn't be embarrassed to hear your kids repeat. One of my favorites was, "Thank goodness it wasn't a million dollar moose that got lost." Hope this helps anyone interested in owning this classic. A few other titles from this collection have caught my eye with which I'm unfamiliar and now that I know the Generations Collection is indeed Disney and not some video pirate out to make a buck I might purchase them when finances permit. Wish they offered these as part of the Disney Rewards Program... just sayin'... in case anyone's listening (hint, hint) :)

Always loved watching those after school specials. My Mom did too and absolutely loved this one. She mentioned in conversation one day and I went on a search. She was tickled I found it for her.

I'm glad that this movie finally came out on DVD, I can repeat play and watch the movie over again. It's a better quality picture than on VHS tape. The DVD picture on the cover is unusual, because I feel the cover should show the cat with the four family member cast.

My husband had been looking for this movie for years and was thrilled when he found it. But when we received it we discovered that it was not an original copy, but a burned copy. The seller did a very good job trying to make SEEM original, but it wasn't difficult to see that it was NOT! I refuse to pay $20 for a cheap knock off! I wonder what Disney would think of this?

A fun & entertaining family movie! This adorable show was a favorite of our family. We had "taped" it and literally wore out the VHS tape. I have been waiting twenty some years for this to be available in some form. Disney please release more of these shows.
