    80's animated kids movie. Gentle giant? PLEASE HELP!!
    Ok so I always used to watch this movie when I stayed home sick from school. I don't remember much, but here goes...
    It was animated kind of like the last unicorn, but the colors were mainly fall colors... very orange. It was set among the hills... I think on a castle or there was some sort of wall and there was a character that danced all along the wall, or roof, to a percussion beat. I can't remember much about the plot, mainly the music and the animation. It seemed like it was mostly set in the fall. My mom thinks the title of the movie was The Gentle Giant, but I can't find anything online except for a remake of Gentle Ben called Gentle Giant and the Iron Giant, which is also a good movie, but not the one I want (the music was better in the older movie, I think it was the 80's... could have been late 70's, most likely 80's though). She also vaguely remembers something about them hating the giant until he planted flowers or some such thing like that. Please help! I've been trying to figure this out for almost a decade.

    Is it 'The Selfish Giant'? The Selfish Giant (1971) It seemed to have some of the plot elements you talked about with the garden and animation technique. I hope this helps!
