I have never seen The NeverEnding Story, but according to this Honest Trailer, it was full of doom, gloom, misery, and sadness. In other words, it was a German kids' movie. It was a big hit in West Germany, which was still a country in 1984, and managed to make money in the US, although it was not what we'd normally think of as a blockbuster. However, people who were children in 1984 now run the internet, so The NeverEnding Story is a fondly remembered shared experience among them.
