Great visuals, charming (if dated) sight gags and jokes.
23 November 2003 | by (Tucson AZ) – See all my reviews

This is a very cute cartoon that allows Iwerks to make full use of his color system. Charming, if by now overly familiar, sight gags and beautiful detail work make this an entertaining effort from the studio. The colors hold up very well almost 70 years later and match up with Disney for the most part rather favorably. Good to have in print and available. Well worth watching. Recommended.
