Quotes:

Queen Tabitha:
Don't look now, dear husband, but our son is missing *again*.

King Colbert:
[looks]
So he is. I think he feels a bit silly riding that white butterfly we gave him.

Queen Tabitha:
Weel, why should he feel silly?

King Colbert:
It dosn't make the right impression on the young ladies.

Queen Tabitha:
Well, what of the impression on the *court*! Colbert, my love, it is the Autumn *today*. And we have begun the golding of the leaves. He *should* be here!

King Colbert:
Tabitha…

Queen Tabitha:
He'll hurt himself. I just hope he's not buzzing through the vales on that wretched bumblebee. He is the crown prince, for Heaven's sake!

User Review

This is adorable! Very underrated!

Rating: 10/10

This is a triumph for Don Bluth! I really enjoyed it. The songs are sweet, &
memorable. Jodie Benson (Ariel, The Little Mermaid) plays the title role, &
she has such a great voice. I would recommend this movie to any family who
is stuck in the Disney collection only rut. Give Thumbelina a
chance!
