Don’t Stop. Believing.*

For fans of really long recaps of movies (sort of MST3K in text), The Agony Booth has just posted its review/recap of the 1998 film animated film Quest for Camelot, a movie I’d never heard of until about ten minutes before I wrote the sentence you’re reading now.

The more I read about it, the more I want to see it. A movie where Steve Perry from Journey is Arthur’s singing voice? And it’s got characters voiced by Urkel, Eric Idle, Don Rickles, and Bronson Pinchot? And it features a gratuitous Riverdance sequence?*** I’m so there.

*I’m not sure if this is the first time I’ve footnoted a post title before, but now that that song is stuck in my head on constant repeat, I am suddenly aware of how weird it is that there is such a pronounced pause in the cadence of the line. He sings “Don’t stop!” Then he stops before getting to the “Beleivin’!”**
**Also: Who are the streetlight people?
***Scientists believe it’s theoretically possible for a non-gratuitous Riverdance sequence to exist, but one has never been sighted. It’s like the Higgs boson of weird 90’s pop culture ephemera.

    I saw this movie when I was 15 (which was how old I was when it came out). I was in a violent Monty Python fandom-stage of my life, and that’s why. I don’t remember anything about it besides Eric Idle. I did have a little doll of the two-headed dragon of which he voiced half.
