This anime had a brief 1986 theatrical release and immediately went to a video. Teenager Neko-chan has a secret power (telekinesis) and a handsome boyfriend, Haruka, who is also “magic” (teleportation).
After he took over the Oswald series, Walter Lantz sometimes worked nights at Universal, putting him in among the same late shift hours as the cast and crew of the classic movie, Drácula. Plus, a tribute to Lupita Tovar.
Hopes were high for Disney’s third animated/live-action musical fantasy and the wide variety of recordings released were a big part of the pre-release excitement.
