Hi everyone. I am new here. Google has failed me again...lol.
When I was a little boy during the early 80s, lets say between 79 and 83, we had weekly readers in school. This would have been between K and 3rd grade. From time to time a tv special would be mentioned in the reader to remind us and our parents that it was coming on. Examples include Charlotte's Web, Watership Down, and holiday specials. One such animated special was about the California Condor. It was big news at the time and this was made to raise awareness. I saw it, it was an animated movie about a mom condor and her little condor. I recall them being captured and taken to a zoo or something. I think it was called The Last Condor. It was a Disney styled animated movie and was a tear jerker. Now that being said, I can't find anything about it online. Anyone remember this? Please help. Thank you.
I checked it out and skimmed all 3 parts on you tube. It looks very familiar, but I think it is just another one we were told to watch. I think the one I remember was more serious, like Watership Down. There were nets and they didn't understand that the people were trying to help them. The mother died in captivity and the one little condor tried to escape. I think he gets away and convinces his little siblings to come live at the zoo after he finds out that the humans are trying to help. The animation is more theatric and feature like. Amazing you found what you did that quickly. Thank you. If anyone can help, it's you folks. Also, the concept of being part live and part animated seems freakishly familiar. I'm not sure.
