Raggedy Ann & Andy: A Musical Adventure is a 1977 live-action/animation hybrid musical film originally directed by Abe Levitow, but credited to animation supervisor Richard Williams following Levitow's death. It was released to mixed reviews and weak box office performance; Williams himself, who was also working on a film of his own at the time named The Thief and the Cobbler, was not impressed with the results during production.
Based on the Raggedy Ann and Andy characters created by Johnny Gruelle, the film follows the two as they embark on a journey to save their owner's new doll when she escapes out fo the window, encountering many strange situations along the way.
