For those that grew up in the early to mid 1990s as young children. You might remember an era when video stores we're still a thing. I remember renting a direct to video animated film of "The Little Engine The Could" as a young kid. The film came out in 1991 and is notable for being one of Kath Soucie's earliest voice acting roles.
But another film that caught my interest is "Simon the Lamb" by Precious Moments. For those that never heard of the company. Precious Moments is best known for creating merchandise sometimes being related to biblical stories to various collaborations. But for a brief period in the early to mid 1990s, ''Precious Moments" decided to work on animated films that was exclusive to the direct to video market.
One of these films was a cute animated film from 1994 called "Simon The Lamb".
The film is about a little lamb named "Simon" who's entire body is colored blue from his sky to his wool. As a result, the other lambs ostracize him from the group. With the only lamb actually liking him is a female lamb.
Here's the only videos I can find on Youtube which came in three separate parts.
I decided to create this thread for those that actually remember this movie along with the other animated films Precious Moments movie during that period.
The original 1994 VHS release came with a cute sheep stuffed animal of "Simon" the titular protagonist of the film.
The original VHS tape was colored white.
The film also featured notable voice actors most notable being Kath Soucie, and Elizabeth Daily (aka EG Daily). Kath Soucie and EG Daily both started to do more voice work during this period. Especially since Nickelodeon's The Rugrats was at the peak of it's popularity at the time of the film's release. Kath Soucie voices a female lamb who has a crush on Simon while EG Daily voiced a lamb who really dislikes Simon.
Some screenshots from Precious Moment's website on the film.
This screenshot shows Kath Soucie's character the lamb with the red ribbons. If I remember correctly, EG Daily's character is the lamb with the green hat.
This screenshot shows more scenes from the film.
The film later got a DVD release a couple years ago.
This movie looks really cute, I hope someone will archive it online.
It looks like one of the other Precious Moments movies has been ripped from VHS and posted on youtube by Analog Vault.
Apparently the film got released sometime around the Easter season and later got a DVD release. Hopefully, somebody might be able to upload a better quality video of the film in the future. Such as "Timmy' Gift" from 1991 that got uploaded on Youtube and Dailymotion.
The back cover shows the other characters from the short film.
I also wonder who voiced the main protagonist "Simon" the lamb with blue wool? I can already recognize Kath Soucie and EG Daily's voices anywhere.
Update: Looks like dcmarshall found the full movie in better quality from the official website for "Precious Moments". Hopefully it might get uploaded to Youtube eventually.
