The first complication in this adaptation of the Grimms’ fairy-tale plot has Hans fall into a deep abyss along with Lulu, the magical fox whom he has befriended. They manage to escape by convincing a hapless monster bird to transport them out of the deep chasm. (The animation of this scene, showing the bird’s not-very-competent flying skills and a series of near disasters, is justifiably one of the film’s famous animated sequences.) Here the fowl is starting a long taxi sprint to work up the speed he needs to get airloft.

Jouji Yanami, the comic voice of Big Bird, likewise appeared in many anime series, notably as the narrator in all of the Dragon Ball/Dragon Ball Z TV and film manifestations.
