Cartoon Summary:


The Cactus King has set out to destroy a magic forest and its inhabitants; he has particular hatred for the beavers, because they are builders. Only one beaver has managed to stay behind- J. Edgar Beaver. J. Edgar meets a kindly artist, Peter Palette, who has fallen asleep under an enchanted elm tree and thus has been granted the ability to talk to the animals (his brush has acquired magic, too). It is Peter's job to save the forest. The Cactus King's crow relays this information to the vociferous monarch, who commands Thistle- his weak, wispy magician- to thwart Peter's effort; but Thistle soon becomes an ally to Peter, who by now is assisted by J. Edgar, Bud E. Bear, and Fifi Fox. The frustrated Cactus King calls on the elements, such as water (headed by King Neptune) and fire (spearheaded by Fire Bug), but they want no part of the Cactus King's destruction. He eventually captures Peter and Thistle, and it's up to the other animals to rescue them. The animals soon learn that the Cactus King has never blossomed and therefore is merely frustrated at not living out his aspirations; when they rescue Peter & Thistle, they mix up a potion Thistle recommends to feed the Cactus King- which they do, while he is sleeping. The King does indeed blossom, and is transformed into a benevolent, loving leader. Peter bids farewell, and J. Edgar- supposedly the only beaver left in the forest- finds a cute female beaver.

I watched this movie almost constantly as a kid, and when I watch it these days, it's just as great. The animation quality isn't great, though not terrible, the voice acting is....well, it's the opposite of "good". But then what makes...  (read more)
