The Librarian from the Black Lagoon

Welcome to the web page for the film The Librarian from the Black Lagoon! The animated film centers around a boy named Hubie, the star of the many "Black Lagoon" books by Mike Thaler and Jared Lee. Hubie's class is going to visit the library for the first time, and rumor has it the library is a dark dungeon of rules and misery. Presiding over the ghastly proceedings is Mrs. Beamster, better known as: The Laminator! Hubie is sure he's doomed...but when he actually gets to the library, will things be as he expected?

 

The film The Librarian from the Black Lagoon is based on the book of the same name, written by Mike Thaler and illustrated by Jared Lee. Galen Fott adapted and directed. Alexander Gould (voice of the title character in "Finding Nemo") stars as Hubie, with Diana Canova as Mrs. Beamster. Animation is by Bigfott Studios. The music is composed by Scotty Huff and Robert Reynolds. The film is produced by Paul R. Gagne and Melissa Reilly at Weston Woods Studios, Inc. Running time is 9:36.

REVIEWS AND PRAISE

 

“In this utterly delightful animated adaptation of Mike Thaler’s hilarious book...Jared Lee’s fanciful cartoonlike drawings are vividly animated, and atmospheric background music and monster growls balance Alexander Gould and Diana Canova’s sprightly narration ... Pure fun.” -- Booklist (starred review)

 

“Mike Thaler’s humorous ‘Black Lagoon’ series is always popular with youngsters, and this title is no exception. Jared Lee’s hilarious illustrations have been animated and augmented, and backed up with original music. A variety of voices add flavor to the production. This is not only a delightful introduction to the book, but librarians will welcome it as a great way to start the school year, introduce rules, and dispel myths about their own libraries.” -- Teresa Bateman, School Library Journal (starred review)

 

“A tailor-made hit for kids and librarians alike.” -- Video Librarian
