Soo im looking for any info on this movie i barely remember. I saw it in the mid 90’s and its been driving me crazy for years now. Im like 80% sure the movie was made with puppets. It was definitely colour and i dont think it was stop motion. Im pretty sure it was a movie not a tv show as we had it on vhs.
I remember that there were two kids (possibly siblings) that get lost in the forest as the sun goes down. There was quite a bit of singing. I recall a bird that spots the children and i think the bird was the “bad guys” sidekick or minion type thing. The children end up stuck in a cage that hangs over a hole with something bad in it. The “bad guys” were maybe a tribe but honestly not sure. I realise my memories are a little hazy but any ideas would be appreciated.
