I just saw "The Hobbit"(1985) for the first time


Have any of you seen the Russian television version of "The Hobbit"? It is truly amazing, what with the singing and dancing, special effects worthy of "Sigmund And The Sea Monsters"...and a Frodo that is almost as tall as Gandalf. MST 3000 and/or Rifftrax need to get their mitts on this one.

I have a feeling it's not officially licensed. And Christopher Tolkien wouldn't have been cool with it, but he's not cool with most things.

That synth is pretty cool. But does it have Down, Down to Goblin Town?

The 20:40 song is pretty cool.
