The Point (1971)

With initial viewings on 70s television and the last day of elementary school, 1971's cartoon feature The Point now provides me with colorful nostalgia. Narrated by Ringo Starr (the first televised version had Dustin Hoffman taking this role, while Alan Thicke and others voiced this for subsequent broadcasts) with the lead role of young Oblio voiced by The Brady Bunch's Mike Lookinland. The whole package comes together with the under-rated Harry Nilsson providing the original fable preaching tolerance while also writing and performing the musical numbers.


  1. I could have swore I was already following your blog. I just realized that I hadn't read any of your blogs in a while, then I saw your Facebook post. Not sure what happened--but I'm following now.

  2. Hey Fred, glad to have you back checking out my blogs. Hope you enjoyed this lil slice of my 70s childhood memories.
