Review:

Little Ben receives a gentle lesson about conservation in this 1999 BBC-Miramax co-production based on John Burningham's book Hey! Get Off Our Train. After staying up a bit too late watching a TV show about endangered animals with his folks, Ben dreams of a magical place where he, and his trusty stuffed dog Jim Jam, are in charge of a train that winds though the earth's habitats. Young viewers pre-kindergarten to elementary school age are introduced to clear-cutting, poachers, and other issues that are endangering animals around the world. Burningham's wonderful color palette makes the 29-minute short wonderful to look at, while the talking animals have enough personality to insure that kids will demand repeated viewings. --Doug Thomas
