Country: USA
What it is: Cartoon whimsy

A toddler is torn from his animal friends in the country to move into a modern home in the city with his parents. Can he make his parents go back to the country?

This one is a bit marginal, as the main fantastic content (the modern appliances in the futuristic home) is used in just a short sequence in the middle. At least that part is played for comedy; the main story about the toddler and the animals is played for whimsy. Still, I do have a fondness for cartoons about gadget-filled houses of the future; there are some very good ones out there. This is one of the lesser examples of the genre.
