This was a great piece of animation.  I remember watching it as a kid along "The Flight of the Dragons"

Very nostalgic. Great little movie

This was my very first time going to the movies. I was six years old, and I remember my parents and us kids standing in line outdoors at Times Square waiting to get in to the theater for this. At the time, the movie made almost no sense to me. All I remember are the unicorns in the waves and a scary, giant red bull (without wings). I can vaguely recall the title song, which I believe also played in the end credits. Or maybe just the end credits. Oddly enough, I own this on DVD but never got around to actually rewatching it again. This article makes me want to correct that oversight now.

This is one of my all-time favorite animated films along side Secret of NIMH.  The theme from "America" was a great little tune and I even have it on my mp3 player.

They actually did have this lined up for a live action version in the early 2000s.  They even had Angela Landsbury and Christopher Lee lined up to reprise their roles (maybe even Rene Auberjonois, can't tottaly recall now).  Also Mia Farrow was in line to play Molly.  I was really looking forward to seeing this and then it got stuck in development hell and I haven't heard anything on it in years.

Rankin and Bass animated films and tv shows have always been among my favorites.  The Hobbit and Return of the King and the stop-motion christmas specials and even regular tv series' like Thundercats!

 I loved it when I was a kid, but it REALLY didn't age well...or maybe I didn't age well...just can't watch it anymore.  And yeah, redhairs, I remember seeing that on IMDb a few years ago too, and yes, Angela Landsbury, Christopher Lee, and Rene Auberjonois were on the presumed cast.

I still love this movie, I don't care how dated it looks. But i would not be opposed to a remake as long as it was as dark and gritty as the original. Trying to clean it up to make it kiddy friendly would be a tragedy. Sort of like them taking the dark edge out of the Dark Crystal. It would be lame.

I am also a huge fan of the Secret of NIHM. Such a damn good movie from a great age in dark but family friendly movies.

 I heard they might do a sequel where the Red Bull joins forces with the Jager Master in an unholy alliance.
