Despite the smoking (which is not constant and not presented in a good light), this show is great fun for all ages. I watched it as a child and now at 22 years old I still love it and still to this day have not smoked despite a few rodents doing it on a TV show. This show actually teaches a child to believe in themselves despite their size or other obstacles, to value friendship, friends, and individuality, to not judge, and to not give up!
I WOULD NOT RECOMMEND THIS CHILDRENS MOVIE TO ANYONE. THERE SHOULD BE NO SMOKING BY ADULTS IN A MOVIE FOR CHILDREN 3YRS OLD AND UP.THIS MOVIE WAS THROWN IN THE GARBAGE AFTER MY 4YEAR OLD GRANDAUGHTER STARTED WATCHING IT. WHAT DO YOU THINK THIS TEACHES OUR SMALL CHILDREN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
