    80's or 90's kids show or movie-Fantasy
    This is driving me crazy because I can't find out if this a real show or a collaboration of show in my mind from when I was a kid.

    The main characters are a brother and sister or maybe just a girl that have this magic crystal that takes them to another "fantasy land" where they meet up with these puppet type creatures and befriend this little red guy. He shows them around, and long story short they get caught by an evil witch and need to somehow find their way back home again.

    If anyone remembers anything like that I would appriciate any information that you can give me.

    Thanks

    First off, it isn't labyrinth. That was with david bowie and an labyrinth. It's one of my favorites. Get it right people. It is the dark crystal. Another one of jim henson's darker muppet type movies. Its really good and you need to rewatch it!

    I think I might know. I had this movie called the Argon Quest, that might be it.

    Argon quest stars a brother and sister who get a special item that takes them to a fantasy land. And all the creatures save for them are puppets. They have to save the land, and there is an evil witch that tries to stop them. And they also need to find a way home. And they do meet up with a creature and befriend it, and it's a pinkish kind of color, and he shows them around, they even save his life as well.


    I really think this is the show you want.

    Has anyone checked out Argon Quest like I suggested and said if it is or isn't yet?
    Cause that fits the bill, hell there's even a giant later on they have to wake up, the Great Argon, who's in blue.
    Come on people.

    Argon Quest:

    Siblings Tracy and Wayne find a mysterious artifact that teleports them to Blizzard Island, a magical place full of strange creatures. They discover that the island is slowly dying, and the only way to save it is by finding and waking up the giant Argon. However, the evil witch Sidney won't have any of that.

    nope, not the dark crystal or the labyrinth, both of which are my favorite movies... I'm interested in knowing what this movie is called though so I can get it. It sounds really good. Let me know when you find out the name.

    At the end, does the witch get her hand stuck in a rotation door trying to get to the crystal?


    EDIT: I found the movie I was thinking of: The Hugga Bunch movie.

    I just read another question and it sounded like they were describing the same movie- they also couldn't think of the name. Another person answered them, saying it sounds like the movie Hugga Bunch. Check it out, maybe it's what you're thinking of. Hope this helps you!
