Bremen Town Musicians (1959) American release 1965

Another West German fairy tale film has four animals leaving their masters and going off to Bremen to become musicians.

Trippy telling of the classic tale has humans in animal masks playing the leads to mixed results. Certain to have played better in its day the film now has a certain quaint quality to it. At the same time the lessons of the original tale do come through. Guaranteed to warp your kids, this is the perfect film to watch with weird movie lovers.

The American dub features children's show host Paul Tripp (The Christmas That Almost Wasn't) telling the story which is perfectly fine.
