"This was a movie I grew up watching.
I remembered the intense story so much and loved
the animation in comparison to cheesy cartoons that I had
to break down and look for this movie.It is a animated movie from the early 80's derived from
an Oriental Fable. A young boy separated from his mother
at birth (she turned into a dragon) He looks to reunite with
his mother and learns to help people along his journey. He makes many friends and each event somehow ties into the
next part of his journey. Its story is very touching.Anyhow, the moral of the story is: You can help yourself by helping others. (A sound piece of business advice I might add)"

"It's a beautifully drawn Japanese story about a boy who learns how not to be selfish and decides to find his long lost mother with the help of animals, people and magic creatures he meets along his journey. Selfishness and it's consequences are the main focus of this movie, but it is also a story of love between a mother and child so beautiful it brought tears to my eyes when I first saw it in the movie theater at age 9. Today I am 36 and was thrilled to find it on DVD for my 4-year-old girl. Now we enjoy it together and she loves to teach me the theme song which she knows by heart. I most definitely recommend this to anyone 3 years and older."
