Watchable but a bit of a disappointment compared to the previous cartoons
18 March 2017 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Despite Oswald the Lucky Rabbit and his cartoons being popular and well received at the time, they have been vastly overshadowed over time by succeeding Disney characters (like Mickey, Donald and Goofy) and those from Looney Tunes. It is a shame as, while not cartoon masterpieces, they are fascinating for anybody wanting to see what very old animation looked like and what Disney animation was like before Mickey arrived on the scene.

After the previous four cartoons ranging from decent ('Trolley Troubles') to very good (the other three but 'The Mechanical Cow' and 'Great Guns!' in particular), even if none of them are cartoon masterpieces, while still watchable 'All Wet' was a disappointment and easily the weakest at that point.

The animation is good on the other hand, for a cartoon so old and techniques still in early days, it's crisp and fluid enough with some nice detail (sure there are some rough spots understandably especially with Disney animation becoming much more refined later). The added soundtrack and sound effects (the 1927-1928 Oswald cartoons being silent) add a lot rather than distract, actually improving the cartoon's impact and making things easier to understand.

Oswald is very endearing still, and the "HELP!" gag is a funny moment in a cartoon with the laughs too far and between. The sound isn't static and the cartoon is cute enough without being saccharine.

However, the story is slight, unimaginative and very predictable, with the pacing also being rather too hectic.

'All Wet' is also rather low on laughs and what there is is not particularly funny other than the one aforementioned, and the lady rabbit a bit bland.

In summary, watchable if disappointing. Worth checking out but Oswald has done better. 6/10 Bethany Cox
