If you are like me and live in USA you may have to endure football on the TV. Or not maybe something else is on in the background or your like football.

If only there was a Hunchback meets football that you could watch instead this Thanksgiving day….

Oh wait! There is!


You can watch The Halfback of Notre Dame on Amazon Prime though you may need the Faith and Family add-on, Because you know Hallmark and stuff.

    I remember watching part of this on Fox Family when Fox Family was a new channel and still in existence. Please tell me the movie is out there for streaming…or on DVD! It looks too cheesy not to watch.

      Well the “good” news is that it looks like you can watch it Amazon Prime but I’m unclear it you need the Faith and Family add-on.

      I’ve added a link in the post if you want to try and watch it.

        I found it on Tubi; it’s a free streaming service…not a ton of commercials though. The service also has the short-lived animated TV series, The Magical Adventures of Quasimodo.

            I have the DVDs. If you go into it, expecting anything close to the book-beside character names-it’ll be a disappointment. But, as a Saturday morning cartoon from the ’90s, it’s actually not bad. From what I’ve seen, the episodes are entertaining..in a laughable and nostalgic sense. A lot of what gets changed from the original story is laughable…Claude Frollo is a sorcerer and brings gargoyles to life. Esmeralda has a mother, who is a gypsy-not using it as a derogatory term, there’s a running joke where the character (I think her name’s Angela) constantly reminds other characters that she’s a gypsy-and Pierre is Esmeralda’s brother. Esmeralda and Quasimodo do seem to have reciprocal feelings toward one another (it’s been a while since I last watched so I could be wrong on some of this). Most of the episodes revolve around something magical/supernatural. As a kids show, it’s not bad; it’s a run of the mill 90’s action/adventure/fantasy kids cartoon, but some executive decided to make it NDDP related because reasons (that’s just my guess)-or maybe they were a major fan of the story and wanted to get more young people interested. The fact that it’s NDDP related has almost no bearing on the plots and premises of episodes…it’s basically NDDP related in name only.

            I have never thought that it looked like a cartoon that was trying to be like the book given the title. But umm given what you have said, I may have to give this show a watch/review. We shall see.
