Hugo the Hippo

Film, Family and kids

Time Out says

An animation feature with terrible songs from Burl Ives and Osmonds Marie and Jimmy. But at least there's an attempt at a liberal theme in its story about the friendship between a village boy (a black kid in Africa) and the sole survivor of a hippo slaughter, and how the local kids come to Hugo's aid against the mindless cruelty of the adults.
