Here is a lovely version of the adventures of Dr. Dolittle, the gentle Englishman who can talk to animals. All his furry and feathered friends are along for the ride including Jip, the dog; Dab-Dab, the duck; Chee-Chee, the monkey; Gub-Gub the pig; and, of course, Polynesia, the parrot; as well as a slew of seagulls, dolphins and sharks, and the unique two-headed creature, Pushmi-Pullyu. Follow Dr. Dolittle to Africa to cure a tribe of sick monkeys. Watch him thwart a fierce band of greedy pirates. Join him on a mission to rescue Professor Long Arrow, a famous naturalist, on the volcanic island of Popsipetel. In between exotic adventures, there are also money troubles at home, precipitated by the tax collector's greedy wife, that Sarah Dolittle, the doctor's sister and housekeeper, can hardly deal with. Dr. Dolittle finally lands in court for a climactic trial with a surprising resolution. Craig Sodaro's adaptation beautifully captures the whimsical humor and deep-felt love for all creatures of the Dolittle stories, while providing a multitude of delightful roles for a large flexible cast.
