    All Dogs Go To Heaven.

    This film was so traumatizing even tho it was a kids movie, its seems like a nightmare that just became a movie.

    Basically about dogs that are gambling and taking drugs...

    From Redditor u/14thCluelessbird;

    Wasn't there a scene where they went to hell? That was pretty intense for a kids movie.

    From Redditor u/HoleCogan:

    I LOVE this movie. When Rikki does his little bun shaking back and forth and his eyes glow and he makes that sound before he attacks Nag and Nagina!

    From Redditor u/jennysing:

    Loved!! Back then, you had to catch it when it came on. We didn’t have DVR, etc. I can still hear that cute little trill sound he made. Great memory- thank you!

    For years, none of my friends believed that The Black Cauldron existed. I saw it in the theater, and never saw it again until several years ago. Convincing my friends that it existed (before the internet) was no easy task.

    Not a movie but a TV show called David the Gnome. He had a fox he rode around on named Swift, I don't remember much else...

    From Redditor u/alleycat2332:

    In an episode I believe his fox was injured so he rubbed some medicinal grasses on the injury to help the fox recover.

    I, being like 4, interpreted this as any grass that was different from regular grass. Armed with this knowledge I scraped my leg pretty good one day, sought out crabgrass from our lawn and rubbed it all over my leg. So instead of just a nice scrape, I also had puffy red skin from rubbing crabgrass all over my leg.

    From Redditor u/Snooty_Goat:

    Oh man...DON'T watch the last episode.

    From Redditor u/Metzger4Sheriff:

    Was just going to suggest watching the last episode! Granted, it probably would have been traumatic as a kid, but seeing for the first time as an adult was pretty reassuring. What a way to go!

    I sing "Sun Why Don’t You Shine" at work all the time! They think I’m nuts.

  • 'Ewoks: The Battle for Endor'

    From Redditor u/GoBoltsAmelie88:

    [This] movie that took place on the Ewok planet (not Return of the Jedi) where a little girl and her brother crash land and are helped by the Ewoks, and they get caught in a giant spiderweb, and one of them gets sucked under a lake and can't break the surface of the water because it'a like glass.

    From Redditor u/InsuranceThen9352:

    The first one (the one you're describing) is called Caravan of Courage. The sequel (and much better one) is Battle for Endor. Both are great movies. Just watched Battle for Endor a few days ago on Disney+.
