Movie Reviews

One of Disney's best family classics.
R. Christenson | Pine, CO USA | 04/26/2005
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Based on the classic children's novel, Toby Tyler is ideal material for a Disney movie. You may remember Kevin Corcoran from several other Disney classics, including Swiss Family Robinson, Old Yeller, etc. and so forth. Here he plays a young boy who runs away from home and joins the circus. The circus adventure and comedy is a bit predictable, but well played and well served by the high Disney production values with great color, stunts, etc.
My favorite part of the movie involves Toby Tyler learning to ride and do stunts standing on a horse, and they have him tied to a pole that swings around a post to follow the galloping horse. I can't describe the scene in words, you just have to see this bit of comic genius. It's worth the price of the DVD for this one segment alone.
But if that's not enough for you, you get a plethora of circus performances and exotic animals in color. Highly recommended for the whole family to watch together."
One of Walt Disney's best!

"We own an old VHS copy of Toby Tyler. Our 2 1/2 year old grandson, who is not interested in television, viewed this movie with amazement. He watched the entire movie and loved it.

Our Uncle Mike was Walt Disney's private chauffeur for years. We're sure Walt would want all his childrens movies released on DVD's,for our future generations.

"One of the best childrens movie ever made. I saw this movie when I was a child at the theater. Sadley,It never came back to town. I have searched for this movie for years, Always hoping I might catch it on TV. Disneys older movies have a lot of little lessons our children could still learn. Disneys Best are still in their vault."
Its more than a movie

"Toby Tyler, is a wonderful movie! I really don't know what the fuss is about it being in wide or full screens. the VHS was a fullscreen tape, and it was great. so there is no need to be worried about the widescreen effect. Either way its a great family movie, with lots to say and teach us, about values, love, and friendships. I Suggest this movie to everyone!"
