Bill Martin in The Point

The Point

1971 NR

Rocker Ringo Starr narrates this version of Harry Nilsson's trippy musical, first broadcast in 1971, about Oblio (voiced here by Mike Lookinland), a boy who lives in the Land of Point and loses his stature in the community when he becomes "pointless." Should he try hard to fit in and be just like the others? Oblio eventually discovers the value of being true to himself, no matter what everyone else expects.
