I remember this same movie, but not the title. I remember at the end, the fat kid yells from the top of the mountain, "Kumatsu, thank you."

I Remember That! 2007/4/25 02:46
I saw that movie in B&W on TV long ago. I wasn't even in school yet. But I never forgot it. The movie was about a boarding school, and one of the dorms was occupied by one thin guy, and one fat guy who had thick glasses if I'm not mistaken. The two guys became good friends. When it was school sports day, the unlikely team won. At the end, the skinny kid transfered to another school. I remember him at the end getting a letter from his skinny friend, and I recall him yelling "thank you" from the top of a hill too! I've been trying to find this movie ever since!

A Very Realistic Theme 2007/4/26 04:40
I've seen this film entitled, both as "Fat & Skinny" and "Skinny & Fatty" in English. While a comedy, it has a very simple, but realistic theme: the power/value of friendship. This show is timeless classic about this virtue. Anyone know how I can get a DVD of this?

Fat and Skinny 2007/4/29 11:56
.Fat and Skinny
I love and remember that movie also from the children movies show on TV, It was Saturday early afternoons. I also remember seeing The Red Balloon. I loved that too. Both movies were introductions to foreign films for me and probably all of you. There were several movies but those two stick in my mind. I have seen The Red Balloon since as an adult still great and have seen the children's book. I am going to look for a place to buy Fat and Skinny. If anyone knows where? This may sound crazy but I was happy to find this sight nobody I know knows what I am talking about.

Is this movie available to buy 2007/9/10 13:49
I have been looking for this film in either vhs or dvd to show my kids. I tried next-gen video but couldn't find their site. Any other suggestions???

vhs videos here 2007/10/24 04:12
I loved this movie!!! I still, 40 years later, remember the end. Fatty, looking down on the old schoolyard (or village - it has been 40 years, after all) shouts out, "Kumatsuuuuuu..., than youuu....." Every time I think of it I am gripped with melancholy built of days long gone by.
Only $19.95 at:

...where to buy... 2007/12/18 15:26
I read the review and like it very much. Will be in Tokyo/Sapporo shortly, where to buy a copy of Skinny and Fatty in DVD?
Thank you!

Skinny and Fatty - DVD (I hope) 2008/4/2 07:59
If anybody here ever hears of a DVD of this movie coming out, gee, let me know. I love the VHS and all, but I sure would like to see the entire 50 minutes in it's original Japanese languge with English Subtitles - and hopefully restored too!! That would be soooo cool. Oh, and I'm so glad I'm not the only one who remembers this film. I was about 11-12 when I first saw it (around 1971-1972). It was only in 2004 that I remembered it again - don't know why, but glad the brain cells made this movie surface again. Hehehehehee.

I saw this movie too as a child. Here it is over 40 years later and I still have thoughts about it. A very good movie about the value of friendship.
