There must be a computer in the Disney studios programmed to produce live-action shooting scripts at the drop of various switches (probably labelled 'Children', 'Animals', 'Moral Homilies' and 'Some Current Cinema Fashions'). It's certainly been in use here. A plane full of two orphans, sundry animals, an evangelist (wonderful Bujold) and a hard-nosed pilot (boring Gould) crash-lands in the Pacific, with ensuing struggle back to civilisation. There's the tousle-haired faucet Schroder crying over his small zoo; an encounter with a shark; and umpteen sermons on tolerance and togetherness, with all the cast - including two Jap soldiers still fighting World War II - learning to live together in a wonderful warm glow.
