From Amazon.co.uk

Buried like a bone in a snowdrift, Balto never achieved the theatrical success it should have, but it's worth digging up. The film is structured on the true tale of a lead sled dog, Balto, that brought a diphtheria antitoxin to the small town of Nome, Alaska. The film balances comedy, villainy and drama very well and the voice work is above average. This is safe family viewing, as even the villain's comeuppance manages a civilised resolution. --Keith Simanton, Amazon.com

Product Description

Animated tale based on a true story. Balto (voiced by Kevin Bacon) is a half husky, half wolf who does not seem to fit into either family. He becomes a hero when a diptheria epidemic and blizzard combine to threaten the lives of the children of Nome, as he has to lead a team of sled-dogs over 600 miles to obtain the life-saving medicine.

5.0 out of 5 stars Balto 1995 23 Dec 2004
Format:DVD
Balto is based on the true story of a half-wolf half-husky called Balto. Balto is an outcast in his home town of Nome, and is singled out by movie villian and husky race champion Steele. When Diptheria hits the children of Nome, the fastest dogs are sent to fetch the anti-toxin...with Steele as the lead dog. When Steele and his team get lost at their second checkpoint, Balto goes after them, along with his friends Boris, the russian snow goose, Muk and Luk, the loveable polar bear cubs, and Jenna, the beautiful husky. Can Balto find Steele and the team in time, and can he prove to Nome that he is capable of fitting into society? You'll have to watch it to find out...
I really loved this film because of its mix of action, cunning, and the occasional surpriser as well...even though it's a kids film, I know that all ages will enjoy it. If you really want a good film to add to your colletion, I would definately reccomend this. Balto is a film that will steal your heart through a mix of great music and spectacular story-telling. My favourite scene is the white wolf scene. I hope you enjoy it as much as I did!

5.0 out of 5 stars Balto 26 Dec 2002
Format:VHS Tape
I loved Balto it was an amazing movie the music was amazing the animation was very good.
I think that people should buy it because it is an amazing family movie which the kids will love.
The movie is about a half wolf half husky outcast in Alaska named Balto.In 1925 a disease hits the people of Nome Alaska and many children fall ill and then even worse news there is no more anti toxin. Balto has allways been a outcast then he meets Jenna a beatiful red and cream coloured husky who he falls in love with. A team of huskys go out to collect the Anti toxin and then they return home but get lost in the storm. Balto goes out into the storm to find them. He finds them to return as a hero he becomes a legends endin the story with the credits which has brillant music
The Voices of Kevin Bacon as Balto
Bridget Fonda as Jenna
the family will love it

5.0 out of 5 stars Balto 21 Nov 2001
Format:VHS Tape
It's one of the greatest films I ever seen, I just can't stop watching it. It tells the story of the great serum run on the Iditorod trail, which to this day still takes place. The story unfolds around the courageous attempts of Balto the Husky and his fight to get the serum back to the children of Nome.

Balto is the best romantic and sad movie that I have ever seen. I think it has this little touch to it that moves everyone and that's why it's the best movie I have ever seen in my whole entire life, and it will always be my most favorite movie in the wide world.

5.0 out of 5 stars all grown up and i still love it ! 17 Aug 2010
By meebee3
Format:VHS Tape
when this film first came out i loved every minute of it and even now I still do. This is my 3rd copy so far.

Its a beautiful story based on some true heroes that really touches everyone's heart. Me and my husky/wolf Hybrid snuggled up and watch this just last week and I still got all watery and giggled at the polar bears.

I really recommend this for kids of all ages and all dog lovers.

WATCH THE DVD EXTRAS !! it relates the true story of the dogs with actual film footage and photos although it is quite sad.
