An all-but-forgotten but charming Creator/DonBluth television special. It was his very first non-Disney production, and was essentially a test run for his newborn studio; though it was made before Bluth finally quit Creator/{{Disney}}. Originally conceived as a a full-length feature film (but was cut short due to budget restraints), and later as a ChristmasSpecial (which also didn't stick), the story tells the tale of a kitten who runs away from home and has adventures in the big city, but soon begins to get homesick for his family and deeply regret running away. With the help of some colorful locals, he eventually makes his way home again. The film can be considered an UrExample of a typical Don Bluth film, as it employs many of the same tropes that would resurface in his later works.

* GainaxEnding: Upon his return home, Banjo's parents don't look the least worried or seem at all curious as to where he's been. The movie just stops before we find out anything else. Hilariously {{Lampshaded}} in the DVDCommentary:
--> '''Gary Goldman''': Hey, how come his parents aren't angry?
--> '''Don Bluth''': Shh! Roll the credits! Roll the credits!
