Here is a lovely version of the adventures of Dr. Dolittle,
the gentle Englishmen who can talk to animals. All his
furry and feathered friends are along for the ride including
Jip, the dog; Dab-Dab, the duck; Chee-Chee, the monkey;
Gub-Gub the pig; and, of course, Polynesia, the parrot;
as well as a slew of seagulls, dolphins and sharks, and
the unique two-headed creature, PushmiPullyu. Audiences
will follow Dr. Dolittle to Africa to cure a tribe of
sick monkeys, watch him thwart a fierce band of greedy
pirates, and join him on a mission to rescue Professor
Long Arrow, a famous naturalist, on the volcanic island
of Popsipetal. In between exotic adventures, there are
also money troubles at home, precipitated by the tax collectors
greedy wife, that Sarah Dolittle, the doctors sister
and housekeeper, can hardly deal with. Dr, Dolittle finally
lands in court for a climactic trial with a surprising
resolution. Craig Sodaros adaptation beautifully
captures the whimsical humor and deep-felt love for all
creatures of the Dolittle stories.
