Review

Rating: 4 out of 5.

This industrial-strength animated fantasy reinforces all the coy clichés of Charles Perrault's classic story, though not the sexual ones - this is a Disney film, after all. There are some delightful singing mice, a sadistically erotic stepmother and a languidly cruel cat called Lucifer, voiced by June Foray. But what really gives an extra dimension to this charming yarn are the songs: the Oscar-nominated Bibbidi-Bobbidi-Boo, sung by Verna Felton, and the winsome A Dream Is a Wish Your Heart Makes, performed by Ilene Woods.
