Featuring the voices of Jackson Beck, Mae Questal, Cecil Roy
Country: USA
What it is: So-so fantasy adventure

Two children encounter a talking fish who takes them to the underwater Land of the Lost so the girl can discover what happened to her missing lucky pin.

This Famous Studios cartoon has a few cute moments in it. It’s mostly about the aforementioned pin who objects to being stuck in a museum when he’d rather be in Toyland, and he has to pass a test to see where he belongs. Oddly enough, the two children and the talking fish play no part in the story; they show up and watch the story play out, and they leave when it’s over. It made me wonder if the movie was a recycling of an earlier cartoon, but I wasn’t able to find any proof of that. Still, all in all, this one isn’t very memorable.
