In this children’s environmental classic, magic and adventure await in a spectacular rainforest where a bat named Batty, whose radar has gone haywire, joins together with Crysta, Pips and the Beetle Boys to save their marvelous world from the evil Hexxus. After meeting Zak, a human who is helping demolish the rainforest, the group show him beauty and magic of the forest, which he then vows to help them save. But it may be too late…
This animated feature teaches viewers about conservation, not to mention the dangers of pollution and junk food. The film highlights the issue of endangered rainforests and includes a dash of comedy by Robin Williams and even Cheech and Chong.
