Before Avator, there was FernGully. FernGully: The Last Rainforest is a 1992 animated film, based on the book of the same name. FernGully was one of the first animated films I ever saw in theatres. While it was not the first one that I saw in theatres (that would belong to Fantasia, and yes, I sat through the majority of it), it was one of the first and very much part of my childhood. It wasn’t too entertaining, at first. It frightened me a little, if truth be told. However, it was once Robin Williams’ Batty made his entrance, that I really enjoyed the film. It has been a childhood favourite of mine ever since.
Robin was truly a versatile actor. It seemed that he could adapt himself to any sort of role, whether it be a genie, a doctor, a well-versed therapist or even a bat. If anyone could do it, it was Robin. He will be missed.
