“The Point” Storyline
An animated story of an unusual kingdom in which everything and everybody is pointed – except for a young boy named Oblio. Despite his round head, Oblio has many friends. But an evil count, jealous that Oblio is more popular than his own son, says that without a pointed head, Oblio is an outlaw. Along with his faithful dog Arrow, Oblio is exiled to the Pointless Forest. There, he has many fantastic experiences (including encounters with a 3-headed man, giant bees, a tree in the leaf-selling business, and a good-humored old rock). From his adventures, Oblio learns that it is not at all necessary to be pointed to have a point in life.
Music composed and performed by Harry Nilsson (“Me and My Arrow”), who also wrote the story. Storyline written by alfiehitchie
