    Old 80's (maybe 70's) animated movie
    OK, I can't remember what the movie is actually about, or what the characters look like ((except that the main hero is a young boy)), but I recall one scene in the movie where they (he and his two companions... I don't recall what they look like), have to perform certain unfesable tasks:
    One involves removing water from a well using an eyedropper
    And the other involves moving a mountain of sand from one location to another, grain by grain.

    I do recall that the animation was kind of psychadelic...

    Help me, this is driving me mad!

    The Phantom Tollbooth (1970)

    The book was one of my faves when I was a kid; I recognized the eyedropper/grins of sand thing right off.
