Doctor Dolittle archiveThe story of the man who talks with the animals (played by Rex Harrison in the 1967 film). Not succeeding well as a real Doctor - largely because he prefers animals to even the best of people, Doctor Doolittle becomes an animal doctor. His pet parrot convinces him to learn the animal languages and he becomes a great success. In order to fund an expedition to find the Giant Pink Sea Snail Doctor Doolittle joins a circus but this leads him to help a love-sick seal return to her freedom - an act that loses him his. The circus animals help him to escape and he sets off on an adventure aboard "The Flounder". The travellers end up on a floating island eventually meeting the snail who gives his friends a lift home - he himself not returning to avoid re-imprisonment. But when his friends clear his name he is able to convince the giant lunar moth to give him the ride he needs to rejoin them. Running time includes the interval.
