Hugo the Hippo Details

FULL SYNOPSIS

Assembled in Hungarian by novice producer [[Performer~P93207~Robert Halmi~roberthalmisr]] and equally "green" director [[Performer~P118538~Bill Feigenbaum~billfeigenbaum]], Hugo the Hippo is an easygoing feature-length cartoon. Hugo, a baby hippopotamus living in ancient times, is persecuted by a world populated by hippo-haters. Foremost among these reprobates is Aban Khan, who in the English-language version of this film is voiced by [[Performer~P100465~Paul Lynde~paullynde]]. Hugo perseveres with the little help of some new friends, both animal and human. Only fitfully successful in theatres, Hugo the Hippo later gained a huge following thanks to its ready availability in the early days of videocassettes. ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi
