It's taken me a while, several months actually, since my posting asking the question below, but I've finally found the name of this film and thought I'd share it with you.
Ironically I was so close to the actual title I should have hit something on a google search, but even with the correct title now very little pops up in google, this really seems to be a title most the world has fogotten about.

With no further delays the title is Hans Christian Andersen's Magic Adventure. It is copyrighted from 1988. I'm also going to post a scan from the box. (I purchased a copy I found on the internet).

Thanks for everyone's suggestions in the beginning!






I am trying to remember the title of a cartoon I watched as a kid in
the 80s. I hope one of you can help.


I *think* the title was something like "Hans Christian Andersen's
Magical Adventure" but googling that hasn't turned up much, so I must
be off.


Here is what I can remember: This was a cartoon I watched in the 80s,
it most likely came on HBO or cable. I remember something about a
little boy reading in an upstairs room, the windows were open, it
started raining, the whole town floods, at some point a guy comes by on
his row boat (I think Andersen) and the boy gets in the boat and I
don't know what happens next; probably they tell some Andersen stories.
At some point puss in boots shows up. I think there was a statue of
Hans Christian Andersen in the town square where the boy was and was
probably set in Copenhagen, but I don't recall. That's all I can
remember but it has stuck with me for 20+ years and I'd like to try to
find it.


Any one know

Hello... I just wanted to say thank you for helping me find this. I have been looking on and off for years. This was one of my favorite movies growing up. I remembered puss in boots and the dragon. Then when I saw the cover so much came back to me. The kites, the rain... I just ordered a copy on amazon.com. Anyways thanks for looking so hard and posting this. I know it's been six years since you posted it and don't know if you will see this, but I am very grateful I found this and it's nice to know someone else out there remembers this. Nobody could help me out. Not even my siblings. Anyways I probably sound crazy. I am just sooooooo excited.

I did see your response. I was actually quite amazed when this showed up in my email box this morning. I had forgotten completely about the posting, but I'm glad it is helping others remember this title. I've since had my copy transferred to DVD and shown it to my son. He loves it as much as I ever did. Glad this could help.

Very cool- glad to hear you were able to find what you were looking for and track down a copy to watch and help others remember it too. And kudos on showing your son the 1980s cartoon classics. Smile
