Hello, My name is Charles and I’m here to review the movie Care Bears: Nutcracker Suite. This movie was first released on December 10, 1988.

In this movie, The Care Bears (TenderHeart Bear, FunShine Bear and Grumpy Bear), The Care Bear Cousins (BraveHeart Lion and LotsaHeart Elephant), The Care Bear Cubs (Hugs and Tugs) and their new human friends (Anna and her little brother Peter) try to help an amnesiac Nutcracker “who is in fact The Prince of Toyland” as he attempts to rescue The Sugar Plum Fairy, recover the Prince’s magic ring “whosoever wears this ring has complete control over Toyland” and  liberate Toyland from the tyrannical wizard, The Evil Vizier and his army of rats, led by the Rat King.

In conclusion, I found this movie to be a true dedication to Tchaikovsky’s Nutcracker as well as being one of two Care Bear movies to be based off of a different franchise “the other franchise is Alice in Wonderland.”

The cast of characters are Michael Caine as Ebenezer Scrooge,

Kermit the Frog as Bob Cratchit,

Rizzo the Rat as Himself,

Dr. Bunsen Honeydew and Beaker as Charity Collectors,

This movie features a muppet-version of the Christmas Carol that is filled with both songs and humor (most of this movie’s humor centers around Gonzo and Rizzo).

The protagonists in this movie are Felix the Cat, Princess Oriana, Madam Pearl, Pim, Poindexter, the Mizzards “a cross between a mouse and a lizard” and The Professor. The antagonists in this movie are Grumper, Wack Lizardi, Master Cylinder and The Duke of Zill.

 

In this movie, Felix the Cat, Poindexter and The Professor travel to another dimension to save both Princess Oriana and the Kingdom of Oriana from Princess Oriana’s evil uncle, The Duke of Zill. The locations in this movie are Felix the Cat’s dimension,the Great Anairo Gold Mine, the Trans-Dimensional Portal chamber, the Land of Zill, Wack Lizardi’s Circus, the Head-Hunter’s forest and the Kingdom of Oriana.

 

In conclusion, I believe that out of all of Felix the Cat’s adventures, this one makes all those other adventures put together seem like one, simple daydream in comparison. But then, he is in fact “Felix the Wonderful Cat.”
