It simply cannot be said that Jetlag Productions is any sort of quality animation company and that it'll go down in history as one; yet, they have managed to produce a fair number of worthwhile titles. Unfortunately, it is also true that the company did not reach or even come near its peak with "Jungle Book"; when I think of the "worst of Jetlag", I immediately think of this one, even if a number of others just as mediocre, or worse, have been made. Of all the different titles from the company, not one has received half the negative attention and criticism that this particular one has. Most of that criticism came from consumers cheap enough to think they'd be getting the… Read more

Oliver & Company was the last film of Disney's so-called "dark age" during the '80s, an era that started back in 1979, when the great financial failure of "The Black Hole" led the company into great monetary problems which somewhat affected the quality of the projects that followed.

Magic Gift of the Snowman, produced by Jetlag Productions in 1995 and released on DVD by Goodtimes Entertainment, is an original story from Jetlag Productions. Though their stories are similar, this animated production is not to be confused with the 1982 classic animated short, "The Snowman" based on Raymond Briggs' charming Christmas book. Original stories from Jetlag Productions are only a handful, since most of these are based on classic children's, and sometimes more adult-oriented, stories. A few other original tales from the studio include "Leo the Lion: King of the Jungle" (1994) and "Curly, the Littlest Puppy" (1995). Though not one of the studio's best efforts ever, "Magic Gift… Read more
