Rip Van Winkle
5 August 2008 | by (New York City) – See all my reviews

Rip van Winkle gets the musical cartoon treatment, and the result, while not a rip-roaring success, does show how Friz Freleng (here credited under his given name of 'Isadore') came to produce some of the best musical cartoons of the next twenty years, like RHAPSODY IN RIVETS, PIGS IN A POLKA and THE THREE LITTLE BOPS. Although Termite Terrace's musical department was not as strong as it would become, Freleng keeps the musical interludes filled up with good gags -- again, not as good as they would become when writers like Ted Pierce and Michael Maltese were available, but they certainly don't stop the entire cartoon, as his fellow cartoon directors would complain that using Warner's musical Library forced them to.

He is assisted in this one by future director Bob McKimson, who was a good animator here. The result is very pleasant.
