|In an ancient Antarctican penguin ceremony, a lovable but introverted penguin named Hubie (Martin Short) must present a special betrothal pebble to the bird of his dreams before the festival is over--or lose his chance with her forever. He just manages to pluck up the nerve when the evil Drake (Tim Curry) knocks him off the ice, and Hubie is swept away.
Picked up and caged by a ship, he meets the streetwise Rocko (James Belushi), whose only wishes are to live in sunny climates and learn to fly. Together they escape, and Hubie convinces Rocko to help him find his way home. In this lighthearted animated fable, good music (composed by crooner Barry Manilow) and expert animation enhance a cast of talented voices.
The real adventure of Don Bluth's THE PEBBLE AND THE PENGUIN lies not only in Hubies journey but in the challenge of defeating his worst enemy, Drake, and helping Rocko face his issues about flying. Children will be entertained and learn a lesson or two about friendship from this lively story.
