"The Legend of Lobo is a classic movie for children as well as adults. My seven year old watches it over and over again!

They don't make them like this anymore!

Great movie from an even greater seller!"

"TRIVIA & BEHIND THE SCENES: Narrated by the great Rex Allen. The very catchy title song was written by Disney composers the Sherman Brothers, and sung by the Sons of the Pioneers. The exciting background score was by Disney veteran Oliver Wallace. Tagline for the movie, "A tale of the old west told in story and song". The other tagline for movie posters was, "The Hunter... The Hunted! In one lifetime he was both". Directed by James Algar and Jack Couffer. Jack was a long-time animal trainer for Disney, and two decades later would help produce "Never Cry Wolf". The filming was entirely on location in Sedona, Arizona and the scenery is beautiful. Filmed in Technicolor. Also included in many theaters with the movie was the Disney True-Life adventure short featurette "Water Birds", and the Goofy cartoon "Aquamania". Screenplay By Dwight Hauser and James Algar, based upon the story by Ernest Thompson-Seton. Released back when there was such a thing as a "G" rating, on November 7, 1962. First VHS release was in 1985. Running time is 67 minutes. DVD aspect ratio is 1.33:1

STORY: A wolf cub named Lobo is born in the desert Southwest, only to see his parents killed by man. The film follows him as he grows to the leader of his own wolf pack with his own cubs. He becomes an arch enemy of the local ranchers who can never catch him, since he is the smartest wolf ever known. The ranchers hire a professional hunter to kill Lobo, but he has never run into the likes of this wily wolf before. This is an exciting wildlife adventure story.
A Classic Disney Animal Story

"If you are a Disney fan, you are probably familiar with their old animal tales, often narrated by Rex Allen or Winston Hibler. There were the True Life Adventures, and then there were those that were actual stories, like "The Legend of Lobo", narrated by Rex Allen and the Sons of the Pioneers. Lobo is the tale of a particularly curious and intelligent wolf cub who grows to become the leader of a great pack in the American Southwest. Losing his parents to vengeful cattlemen when he was young, Lobo learned the scent of man well, and he repeatedly uses his wit and skill to outsmart them as his legend grows. Full of those delightful Disney scenes of young animals interacting with each other and grown animals being remarkably clever, "The Legend of Lobo" is a pure delight. This live-action, 67 minute film from 1962 is great family entertainment, though it does include Bambi-like themes of a young animal losing his parents. There is no dialogue from the characters, unless you count animal sounds. Instead, the narrator and songs tell the tale. It's what one expects from a Disney animal story of the mid-20th century, and, as such, is a great DVD to own if you love wolves, the Southwest, or classic Disney in general."
