A Piece of My Childhood

August 12, 2011 Fun 2 Comments

I went to a party last night and was shocked when the people I was talking to — both of whom are my age — looked at me blankly when I brought up “Pete’s Dragon.” We were talking about people living in lighthouses and, of course, this movie is where my head instantly went.

Nora (played by Helen Reddy), lives in a lighthouse with her dad (played by Mickey Rooney). Naturally.

I went on and on about how this movie was ahead of its time with a cartoon dragon “acting” alongside his human counterparts. Their stares remained blank.

I feel sorry for kids who did not grow up watching this movie. Seriously.
