Charlottes Web (1973)
E.B. White’s timeless story comes to life in this animated musical from directors Charles A. Nichols and Iwao Takamoto. Join Wilbur the pig (voiced by Henry Gibson), Templeton the rat (Paul Lynde) and Charlotte the spider (Debbie Reynolds) as they learn about friendship, trust and love. When Wilbur is sold to a farmer and finds out that he will eventually be killed for food, Charlotte convinces the farmer that Wilbur is a very special pig.
This is an animated musical from the classic storybook by E. B. White, namely “Charlotte’s Web”. I have watched this many times with my children, my nieces and nephews. Now my grandchildren enjoy it as well. It is a fantastic story of friendship and love. Anyone raised on a farm understands the problem that Wilbur faces.With the toe tapping music and colorful characters this classic will be watched for years to come. This film shows everyone that it is okay to be different and that with hope situations can change. Dove awards the Dove “Family-Approved” Seal to this wonderful DVD.
