This animated film is loosely based on the historical and heroic effort of Alaskan sled dogs and mushers who endured the brutal elements to bring diptheria antitoxin to people in Nome, Alaska. Drama and humor are well balanced and the voice acting is superb.
Long Review: 

  This animated film is loosely based on the historical and heroic effort of Alaskan sled dogs and mushers who endured the brutal elements to bring diptheria antitoxin to people in Nome, Alaska.  Balto is a half-wolf, half-husky outcast who overcomes prejudice in his heroic effort to save the children of Nome.  Drama and humor are well balanced, and the voice acting by Kevin Bacon, Bridget Fonda, Bob Hoskins and Phil Collins is superb. A favorite among dog lovers,this heartwarming movie is appropriate for children of all ages and will be loved by parents as well.
