The Last Unicorn

My wife bought The Last Unicorn for our two year old daughter yesterday, and I watched it again last night after nearly fifteen years.   It is most definitely created for a young audience, but it was one of my first experiences with the fantasy genre close to a quarter of a century ago, and still holds a dear place in my heart.  If you have children, buy it and watch it with them.  You and they will not be disappointed, and you will be fostering the MMO players of tomorrow.  We got our copy for $1.89 in the discount bin.  What a steal!   My daughter awoke this morning, clammoring for more with cries of, “Daddy, watch corn?”

  1. Oooh, I do so love that movie. It was just so magical. When you’re daughter’s old enough, definitely get her the book—it’s even better!

  2. Heather,

    Your Cafepress work is awesome!

    “Of course I have 100 feet of rope. Doesn’t everyone!?”

    I regret to inform you that you owe me a new keyboard, as your humor has caused me to snort coffee all over my old one ;-)

    I will need to do some shopping for upcoming occasions at your site, my wife and a few friends would love some of those designs.

    Anyone who hasn’t seen their work:

  3. A true classic. I rememeber my daughter watching it over and over again as well. I wonder how she’d react if I slipped it into her VCR without her knowledge? She’d have to stop all that teen-angst I’d bet.

  4. Cyndre: *blush* Thank you! The whole thing started as a joke, I swear. My husband and I and a friend of ours were hanging out in Warcraft, and joking around as usual, and someone said, “that should be on a T-shirt.” And I said, “you know, I think there’s a site where you can upload designs and do print-on-demand.” We decided to give it a shot, figuring if we made back the $60/year for the premium shop we’d be more than happy, and somehow we’ve ended up with a thriving business. I’m still kind of perplexed by the whole thing, but it’s a ton of fun! And we finally made enough after all the lawyers’ fees for incorporation and all that for me to get Photoshop—much easier to use than GIMP, I’m forced to admit—so I think we’re doing even better stuff now.

    Thanks again for the kind words!

  5. I loved that movie when I was a kid. It was up there with ‘The Princess Bride’, though I’d forgotten it for a while until I watched it while going through old kid’s movies with a friend of mine. Thanks for reminding me to pick up a copy.
