Doctor Dolittle, the world-renowned veterinarian who speaks a wide array of animal languages, sets off from his home in Puddleby-on-the-Marsh, England, in search of the Great Pink Sea Snail. In so doing, he and his friends meet such exotic creatures as the Pushme-Pullyu and the Giant Moon Moth. Wonderfully cast and with sumptuous locations this classic film is a charming combination of some delightful Hugh Lofting tales and a big Hollywood musical.
