Hi,

I've got a severe case of nostalgia and just can't find that cartoon.

I watched it in the early 80s, probably '81, but it might have been made earlier.

I was 6 at the time so what I remember is fuzzy and might be somewhat off...

It's about a character named "bashful", I remember it being a bear but I might be wrong. This "bashful" fellow is on a quest and he arrives eventually to a cave where there are "elements" who present themselves by song ("I am this and this"). I remember that song to be very dramatic.

I also remember that there was some sort of an "old man winter" character, maybe even in that name.

Overall length was about 20-30 minutes.

Any help would be appreciated. I really need to get this off my back Smile Thanks so much!

It is a rare gem indeed!
Although the animation is low budget and the art is so so, the story is great and the music is world class!
The message too is so ahead of its time, linking Christmas to environmental issues.
Thanks again! [/list]

Really? That's interesting. Seems like a bit of a stretch to me...Of course, God did send Jesus to be our Savior at Christmas- and He has instructed His followers to care for the Earth and environment- so I do think that's important as a Christian- but nothing is as important as the spiritual side of things and the message that God loves us and will save anyone who calls on His name in faith. Very Happy Cool

(I'm somehow doubting your sincerity- lol.)
Well, the Holy Spirit does the convincing, not me- I just try to pass the message on where I can. Very Happy Thanks for listening though.
In any case, glad you found the cartoon you were looking for and I do wish you the best in everything, including the spiritual side. Smile
