It has taken several trips to Google over the years, but I finally figured out the name of the movie from my childhood that has been eluding me for years. Hoomania!
And so, here is a favor to anyone else who might be searching for this movie:
1980s children’s movie
-1980s Christian movie
-movie about a kid sucked into a board game
-little boy becomes board game character
-Claymation board game
-movies about Proverbs
-ridiculous movie about a kid becoming a board game character and learns moral lessons about making wise choices from creepy Claymation creatures
Maybe that will help someone else out who has been in my shoes.
Next, I just need to get hold of a copy of this movie, which I remember watching repeatedly in Sunday School. I doubt this will ever get released on DVD, but maybe I can get myself a VHS copy someday. Then I can remember more than just t!e intro, which happens to be set to a Pat Boone song called “Trouble Ought To Be My Middle Name.”
Surely I can’t be the only Christian kid from the 80s who remembers this movie?
