Oh, and one other thing.

The other day I was trying to remember what the fuck this movie was that I was all of a sudden remembering little snippets of. I knew it involved a circus, and some evil ringmaster with like a glass eye or something and a bunch of crows like eating him alive or something and leaving behind just the eye. And this was a kid's movie -- a cartoon. What the fuck was it?

And then I found it:


Thank you, YouTube. Keeping memories alive.

Oh, and the mildly traumatizing part that was the whole reason I remembered this movie at all (before viewing this video brought it back so much more vividly) is at 6:13 to 7:11. Creepy, right?

I was just thinking of this film yesterday! Put it down to psychic storms, or some such.

:D I know. A lot of kids movies have some pretty weird/creepy/traumatizing bits (, actually.

there is just so much creepiness in that one segment...wonder how many kids really had their heads fucked with by this movie (and check out the Nostalgia Critic's Hunter Thompsonesque trashing of it!)

I just watched the review. Pretty great. And now I know what a Big-Lipped Alligator Moment is. I loved his reaction to that segment. That was pretty much me as a little kid watching it. "Well, that was sure an abrupt change in tone for a few seconds there..."

TV tropes lists a lot of big lipped alligator moments too.
