BTW, I finally got to see the IRON GIANT movie tonight, and now I have an 
idea why it wasn't more successful as a movie.  It's too demanding for a 
children's movie these days.  I think the script would have done well for a 
movie with real actors, but it should have been made by Spielberg, maybe.

I'm not sure why it was so demanding, but the problem is obvious right away. 
  Following the bit about Sputnik?  The fifties climate?  A historical 
setting?  Dense artwork?   Whatever, it's still a very good movie, but maybe 
more for adults than children.
