No doubt. After all, he left her the washing up, and allowed Sam to finish off the beer. ;)

Oh, lovely. :rolleyes:

Errr...no. As much as I like (in some ways) Bakshi's film, I agree with this classic website's (http://flyingmoose.org/tolksarc/bakshi/bakshi.htm) take on the matter:

If it's wildly successful, I fear it will be due to a disconnection with what I consider the "spirit" of Tolkien's works.
