More Info:

How can you not love a psychedelic animated kids' film in which a young boy, bored with the dreary and gray Adult World, follows an enchanted tadpole through the drain in his bathtub - where he discovers a surreal and musical undersea world? Populated by singing (and barely dressed) Mermaids, a funky hepcat Octopus, and whiskey-drinking Skeleton Pirates, the underwater kingdom is the grooviest scene this side of YELLOW SUBMARINE, with helpings of Dr. Seuss, Sid & Marty Krofft and Harry Nilsson's THE POINT thrown in (kids' entertainment in the early 1970s was truly outtasite!). In addition to the candy-colored, kaleidoscopic visuals, the film is famed for it's incredibly addictive soundtrack featuring Jazz heavyweights of Copenhagen circa 1970, with vocals sung by the cream of Danish 60s Pop and Rock including Peter Belli, Otto Brandenburg, Poul Dissing, and Trille on tracks like "Octopussong/ Blækspruttesangen" and "seahorsesong/ Sohestesangen." Considered something of a national treasure in Denmark (where it was selected for the country's Cultural Canon alongside works by Carl Th. Dreyer, Isak Dinesen, and Hans Christian Andersen), BENNY'S BATHTUB has been beautifully restored from the original camera negative and sound elements by Fiasco Film for it's first-ever U.S. release by Deaf Crocodile. In Danish with English subtitles.
