 'FERNGULLY ... THE LAST RAINFOREST' VIDEO IS A CHILDREN'S
 GIFT THAT ADULTS WILL LOVE TOO
 LOS ANGELES, Nov. 10 /PRNewswire/ -- Children's videos have become a popular staple of holiday gift giving as the current boom in animation attests. But despite all the clamor over "Beauty and the Beast" and other Disney videos, consumers should not overlook "FernGully ... The Last Rainforest," an extraordinary animated musical film now on video.
 For many weeks "FernGully" was the No. 1 selling video in the nation. Set in a luxuriant tropical rainforest, "FernGully" is a rollicking adventure fantasy about how a plucky young fairy, a wacky fruit bat and a teenage boy save their magical forest home from the forces of destruction.
 At a suggested retail price of only $24.98, "FernGully" makes a great holiday gift. The video also comes with a $5 mail-in rebate on the purchase of "FernGully" and one of 10 family favorites from the FoxVideo collection, including the "Star Wars" trilogy, "Home Alone," "Doctor Doolittle," "The Sound of Music," "Miracle on 34th Street," "Edward Scissorhands," "My Fair Lady" and "Heidi."
 And, as an extra bonus, FoxVideo is offering a coupon good for an additional $2 rebate on "FernGully" videos purchased with one of the 10 selected FoxVideo titles. This special holiday bonus certificate -- offered from Oct. 23, 1992 through Dec. 31, 1992 -- will be available in Sunday newspapers and women's magazines nationwide. This additional coupon, when coupled with the rebate enclosed in the video, adds up to a total savings of $7 off the "FernGully" purchase price.
 "FernGully" received wide critical acclaim when it debuted in movie theaters last spring. Siskel & Ebert gave the film "two thumbs up!" while the Atlanta Journal said "FernGully" was "one of the few non-Disney animated features to make it into the same ballpark as 'The Little Mermaid' or 'Beauty and the Beast.'" "FernGully" also received the Award of Excellence from the Film Advisory Board for quality family entertainment.
 Created by some of the world's finest animators, "FernGully" is a film for the whole family -- an exciting tale of adventure and magic that will charm adults as well as children. Character voices are by Tim Curry, Samantha Mathis, Christian Slater, Jonathan Ward and Robin Williams. The soundtrack includes songs sung by Sheena Easton, Elton John, Raffi and Tone-Loc.
 And, in an extraordinary move, the producers of "FernGully" are donating a percentage of the movie's profits -- including video sales -- to the Sierra Club, Greenpeace, the Rainforest Foundation and a special fund administered by the Smithsonian Institution to aid environmental groups around the world.
 Destined to become an animation classic, "FernGully" is a gift that families can enjoy for years to come. All those who love family entertainment, animation and musical fantasy will want to add "FernGully" to their home video libarary.
