Synopsis:

Unico is a young unicorn who has the power to make everyone around him happy. In a fit of jealousy, the gods commanded the West Wind to strand him on the Hill of Oblivion for all time; but the West Wind couldn't bring herself to do this, so she left him in a forest where the gods wouldn't find him. On this island Unico encounters a girl named Cherry, as well as her long lost brother Toby. Toby is now the apprentice of Kuruku, a powerful magician that turns people into living dolls to help him build his castle... with their own bodies! Now Cherry and Unico have to find a way to fight Kuruku's magic and rescue everybody, even if it means traveling to the edge of the world to do it!

Regardless of the fact that Tezuka worked on both Unico and Pinoko's Adventure, both are remarkably cute and cuddly with plenty of adorable animals to look at, and are very family friendly. This specific Unico movie is fairly dark, but still, both of these make a good recommendation for each other.

Jack and the Beanstalk

Jack and the Beanstalk
  • Movie (1 ep x 100 min)
  • 1974

Jack is a simple boy who lives on a farm with his mother, his beloved dog and a happy cow. However, as times are tight Jack's mother sends him to sell the cow to the butcher in town, and along the way the boy runs across a magician who offers him a bag of magic beans in exchange. Foolishly Jack accepts and returns ‘empty handed,' angering his mother in the process. Yet that night, the beans sprout from the ground and turn into a giant beanstalk stretching beyond the clouds! Jack and his dog ascend to the land of the clouds and meet Princess Margaret, a lovely girl under the spell of an evil witch whose goal is to marry her to her son, a giant named Tulip. Can Jack help save the beautiful princess and restore peace to the land of the clouds?

Unico and Jack and the Beanstalk are two children's stories that have a bit of darkness involved, but most importantly have an insanely similar tone and feel. Children who like one will definitely like the other.

Jungle Emperor Leo Movie

Both Unico and Leo deal with the adventures of small wild animals, that are involved in human problems. The drawing style of both is also similar and the morals behind it are quite comparable. If you liked one, you will probably love the other.
