Rock-a-Doodle

He’s a rebel with a cause.

Animator Don Bluth broke with Disney when he felt the company was straying from Walt’s vision, and has gone on to have a steady career as an outsider fighting for a certain style in family films.

Along the way, he’s birthed the never-ending Land Before Time series, All Dogs Go to Heaven, and Anastasia, among others.

One of my favorites is this tale of a Glen Campbell-voiced rooster who becomes an Elvis-style music star, before returning to fight off the diabolical plans of the dastardly Duke of Owls.

It rocks the house down.
