Charlotte's Web 1973

That humble radiant terrific book is now a humble radiant terrific movie.
Wilbur the pig is scared of the end of the season, because he knows that come that time, he will end up on the dinner table. He hatches a plan with Charlotte, a spider that lives in his pen, to ensure that this will never happen.

This movie is a beloved children's classic, but it is much better remembered than re-watched. I watched it with my kids this past weekend & I had never realized how whiny Wilbur sounds!

Having said that, it is still a very good movie for children with nice themes about friendship and innocent fun. I've always loved Templeton's "A Fair is a Veritable Smorgasbord" song (if you can get over the fact it's a rat singing about eating garbage!) I had forgotten how many of the songs I knew the words to. Again, this one's only fun if you watch it with kids, but it's worth having your kids watch it.
