This movie was released in 1986. I was very excited about the prospect of the film and seeing one of my favorite characters brought to life. However, the film is a great disappointment due to what I call the "Howard Effect". What this really boils down to is that they cheaped out on the look of Howard and used a little person in a duck suit, and when all is said and done it looks very much like a little person in a duck suit. I think that in itself was the death of the film, since the storyline was pretty dead on as far as character and the other effects were pretty good.


I think any information about the film is completely covered by the Internet Movie Database and these other sites.
