Oh I loved that so much. Where did you get it from?

My OH whittles on about this so much and has shown me YouTube clips I always tell him it was before my time. I reckon I should get a copy for him.

I thought it a bit spooky though

I have only ever seen the comedy sketch that was a spoof of this. It might have been on The Fast Show?

Only seen it once and Lord knows how old i was when i saw it - about 6???? But my parents have never forgotten how terrified of it i was.

Was there a bear in it?

where did you get it? I have been trying and trying but no luck. not even found youtube links.....
not sure if I want to watch it. the sinsiter elf thingy. I think I was about 6 when I watched it first. The maddest thing I had ever seen, even madder than Dr. Who.

Hello, Sorry I haven't been on for a couple of days. I bought a new copy from Ebay this week for £5. We all watched it last night. My 5 year old & 3 year old were transfixed. My husband liked it too. They love Dr Who so I knew they wouldn't be scared. It was nice & colourful & a refreshing change from current children's films. There was an interview with the actress who played the princess on the dvd too. My 3 year old DS loves Snow White so he liked the dwarf best.
