[edit]

Synopsis: Aaron is a little boy with a drum (Ta Daaa!) who hates all people because of what people did to his parents.


Reaction: The story is a bit disappointing. The animation is fine, as Rankin and Bass know how to do that well, but the "I hate people!" bit is a bit strained.


Personal Rating: 5/10
