Editorial Reviews

All Movie Guide - Craig Butler
Arthur Rankin and Jules Bass carved a successful niche for themselves and their "animagic" stop-motion animation process in such television outings as Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer. Their attempts at crossing over to the big screen, however, were less successful. The Daydreamer is not bad, but it's also not up to the level of Disney or most other studios attempting animation at the same time. By modern day standards, the animation is technically primitive, but even in comparison with other Rankin-Bass productions Daydreamer's "animagic" is a little sloppy (especially in those segments involving water). The live-action wraparound sequences are awkward and rather trying, and the film as a whole tends to drag. On the positive side, the "Emperor's New Clothes" section is quite good, helped enormously by Ed Wynn's marvelous Emperor and the thieves of Terry-Thomas and Victor Borge. The vocal talent throughout is of very high quality; rarely has an animated film boasted such a stellar line-up. The whimsical score is also a plus, with special mention going to the title song and the delightful "Isn't it Cozy Here," and the creators deserve credit for keeping intact the rather melancholy, downbeat air associated with Hans Christian Andersen. If they had also captured his magic, this might have been a special picture. Rankin and Bass would attempt one more feature production, the strange Mad Monster Party, a year later.

    Great!

    I watched this movie as a young child and scenes and characters stayed in my memory. I recently found this movie and was surprised at how accurately I had retained the images, which attests to how vivid and creative the scenes are! It switches from regular people to claymation and the stories are rather dark - the paradise story was the one that made the strongest impression on me. It may scare some very young children but it's the Brother's Grim ... I wouldn't miss this movie. It has some very endearing parts too!
