The other night the Munchkins and I watched a fun little movie called "Hoodwinked". I had never seen it before, and I loved it. It starred Anne Hathaway, Glenn Close, James Belushi, Patrick Warburton, Anthony Anderson, David Ogden Stiers, Xzibit, Chazz Palminteri, Andy Dick, Cory Edwards, and Benjy Gaither as Japeth the Goat.
"Hookwinked" is a hoot, and Japeth the Goat steals the show. He is the most wonderful character I have ever seen -- ever -- in an animated movie. He's a singing hermit goat, who lives in an old shack on the mountain. Several years ago a mountain witch put a spell on him, forcing him to sing everything he says. He plays the banjo and sings in Appalachian mountain style, as only a goat can sing. I was mesmerized. Did I mention ... he steals every scene he's in. I keep playing this little video over ... and over ... until the Munchkins are hollering, "Nooooo ... not again...!" I thought I would share this character with you, and I hope you enjoy him as much as I do.
