The original story from the book has been expanded to three intertwining story lines with a cast of characters that includes the towns-people who are discouraged because the railroad has passed them by and a handful of charming, talking animals. After John Sonneman rides into town and sets up his candy store, their lives are never the same.
The animated artwork, drawn by the top-notch cartoon production company that produces a number of cartoon shows for television, follows the style of the book. Well-known actors such as Florence Henderson (The Brady Bunch), Paige O'Hara (Belle in Disney's Beauty and the Beast), Bruce Marciano (Jesus in the Visual Bible: Matthew), Tom Bosley (Happy Days, Murder She Wrote), Ossie Davis (Dr. Dolittle, The Client, A Vow to Cherish), Jay Underwood (The Boy Who Could Fly), and Malcolm-Jamal Warner (The Cosby Show) provide many of the voice-overs.
