The Wishbone episode “The Hunchdog of Notre Dame” presents a very simple telling of the Hugo’s novel.
The whole point of Wishbone is to communicate classic novels and stories to children and make them accessible so children will in turn want to read them. The wishbone version cares about the source and does make the novel accessible for children.
We do get the lesson about inner beauty but it doesn’t feel as forced or as hammered in as some other versions (Disney). And despite its lack of budget and the lackluster complimentary story about an underdog learning to play hockey it’s an enjoyable short version.
Plus this version has the cutest Quasimodo ever!
