Animal Treasure Island (1971) IMDb


Miyazaki Hayao (key animator).


Seen in 2013.


Musical adventure. Funny animal version of Robert Louis Stevenson’s Treasure Island. Key animation and “idea construction” by Miyazaki.


Far removed from the novel, and less violent. Billy Bones, not named, is a tomcat. Jim has a steam-powered barrel for a boat, and a bespectacled non-giant mouse named Glan for a friend. Long John Silver is a pig, and never denies being a pirate. A tough girl named Kathy, granddaughter of Captain Flint, is added to break up the sausage fest. Jim and Kathy are the only humans.


Stylized liked a UPA production. Mercifully quick, but lacking all lustre.
