Sort of like Fraggle Rock. When I was a kid FR was AWESOME!

We turned it on from the Netflix Instant and my kids were like "If that was all you had to watch, why didn't you just go outside and play?"

That child was barely 5 at the time.

I know. I guess it is like that for every generation.

I was never made to watch punch and judy, but I probably would have rolled eyes.

What a weird movie that was. Full of random weirdness that put it right on the edge of good/bad.

You think it is strange now. Either turn your TV upside down or a computer monitor or if you have fancy new stuff change the orientation. Then drink 6 homebrews and watch it. It is an entirely different movie that way.

I 1st watched it as an adult. Obviously it's a movie with puppets, but it's not a bad story, not even a "bad" movie really. Attack of the Killer Tomatoes was truly a BAD movie. Dark Crystal certainly had it's shortcomings; like the creatures the gelflings ride: OBVIOUSLY people in a suit with crutches. You can't help but roll your eyes at that & think "seriously? that's the best they could do?"

It's a classic story of good vs evil, in a fairytale setting; how is this any worse than Pinnochio or Peter Pan? Is it just the puppets? I know Dark Crystal isn't anywhere close to the same level of greatness that the Lord of the Rings movies are; not in the story & not in the production, but I'll rank Dark Crystal as a good movie to watch once in a great while, especially with kids. If the kids hate it, we can watch The Adventures of Baron Munchausen or the news instead. (heh heh heh).
Regards, GF.

I remember watching this as kid as well as labryinth and neverending story. I also remember a kind of dark cartoon called, the last unicorn . of course I also had the hobbit and return of the king cartoons by Rankin/Bass. Both great toons.

Lots of good stuff out there. some of it "is" wierd but still good stuff
