Description

Animated feature narrated by Ringo Starr which features original songs composed and performed by American singer-songwriter Harry Nilsson. The story centres around a young boy named Oblio (voiced by Mike Lookinland) who lives in an unusual land where everything from the trees and buildings to the people all have a point. Banished from the land because of his strange and unusual rounded head, Oblio is sent to the Pointless Forest with his faithful companion, Arrow, where he encounters many fantastic characters including a three-headed man and a friendly old rock. As the story progresses, Oblio learns that although not all things appear outwardly pointy, this does not mean they lack a point in life.

Synopsis
Singer/songwriter Harry Nilsson wrote and produced this touching animated tale in 1971, and contributed some classic songs for the soundtrack. The soft Liverpudlian lilt of ex-Beatle Ringo Starr narrates the tale, telling the story of Oblio: A sad outcast from the village of "Point." largely eschewed by the local villagers due to his round head. The adventures of Oblio and his trusty sidekick dog Arrow subsequently take shape in the "Pointless Forest," a wonderland filled with colorful characters and some enchanting secrets.

"THE POINT is a prime example of mass-culture outreach by a countercultural artist."
