Notes: Pleasant, sweet movie of a group of children who, as an award for personal heroism or good works, get to travel throughout Spain and abroad. Naschy worked behind the scenes in this movie, and appears briefly as an extra, being most evident in the film's opening credits walking next to one of the selected children. He also appears (masked) in a hospital scene playing a physician. Film composer Anton Garcia Abril would later score several classic Spanish horror films, including Klimovsky's LA NOCHE DE WALPURGIS (Naschy's fifth Waldemar Daninsky movie, known in the US as THE WEREWOLF VS. THE VAMPIRE WOMAN) and De Ossorio's Blind Dead films.
