RIKKI-TIKKI-TAVI (Released to Theaters in the USA 1975)

Ben Meyers’ Rating: 3.9|5.0 Starsììì 

Rikki-Tikki-Tavi—excellent, short, animated story—serves the whole family. It educates and entertains. The film’s classic story is written well, above the average. Be aware that there are many versions of this story besides this 1975 version. This story in  The Archives.org library has atrocious audio. Dailymotion's audio is slightly better. This 1975 version of Rikki-Tikki-Tavi is also available on Plex and Amazon Prime. The Amazon Prime version is for sale on VHS Tape for VCR. Those versions have not been reviewed by this reviewer for quality of audio.

Rikki-Tikki-Tavi finds a human family he would like to adopt and be as welcome inside their home as on the outside. He finds a way to win and earn that coveted position.

Buy a ticket? Yes? No? Maybe? 

Yes. Despite the low-quality audio, this 1975 presentation of this classic story is excellent and a good share, short film that deserves its place in the family home video library. Good work for all involved in producing this animated movie.
