Wow, I've also been looking for this movie but could only remember the magic pancakes... Incredible to watch it now after all these years. It certainly did come flooding back. I just put the youtube link on facebook to see if any of my elementary school friends from Andrew T. Morrow Elementary, Central Islip, NY remember watching this movie every time it rained. It'll be fun to see who else remembers this movie. I also remember a movie about a giraffe's with a hat who drove her car to her house... guess that one will take longer to find. Can't wait to start the search. Nice trip down Memory Lane! Blasted me back to the 1970s.
