It was later announced that was due to a complaint received by the IBA (the Israeli Broadcasting Authority - its government national broadcaster) that some of the characters resemble antisemitic imagery. There hasn't been a broadcast on the Israeli national broadcast since. See more »

I really enjoyed this film as a child. I had forgotten the name for many years, which was unfortunate. Recently, my mother recalled the title in order to show this film to her class. She had requested it from the library and was surprised that it doesn't exist in a DVD format.
I happened to find it laying about and watched it again. All the childhood memories poured back. It isn't often an adult will sit through a children's' film and enjoy what they see but I did.
I still searched online for a DVD format so I could make a purchase but no dice. I wish it would be put on DVD.
