Cartoon Production Information:
It featured original pop music "starring musical performances by Joan Baez, Mick Jagger & The Rolling Stones, [and] The Pointer Sisters." However, the music rarely matched the images, and audience members were confused by the lack of dialogue accompanying the action.
The hero in each story was also played by the same character, making some think that the movie was simply one long story.
Originally released in Los Angeles in May 1978, then withdrawn, recut to 80 minutes with added narration by Peter Ustinov and music by a single composer, and released as "Winds of Change."
The feature was produced by Sanrio Films' short-lived Hollywood animation studio.
