Water Babies ★★ Slip Slide Adventures 1979 (G)

When a chimney sweep's 12-year-old apprentice is wrongly accused of stealing silver, the boy and his dog fall into a pond and eventually rescue some of the characters they find there. Combination of live-action and animated fairy-tale story set in 19th-century London. Boring, unless you're a young child with equivalent standards. Based on the book by Charles Kingsley. 93m/C VHS, DVD . GB James Mason, Billie Whitelaw, David Tomlinson, Paul Luty, Sammantha Coates; D: Lionel Jeffries.
