No Laughs To Be Had

Simple Simon (1935)

** (out of 4)

Ub Iwerks directed this animated short, which is based around the famous fairy tale of a simple man who gets involved with a pie man. To say this cartoon is politically incorrect would be an understatement because the Simon character is basically made to look retarded. I'm going to guess that quite a few people aren't going to be thrilled with the way Simon is played and that would be understandable. As with the other films in this series, this one here really doesn't feature too many good things. There are certainly no laughs to be had and the characters are all rather lame. The one saving grace is the animation, which looks very good but it's not enough to save the picture from being a complete bore.
