Storyline

Prolog: various animals enjoy winter sports. Beans sees a notice of a ski race, and decides to enter. But so does a bad guy (who looks more than a little like Disney's Pete). The bad guy sabotages the other contestants in various ways, takes short cuts, etc. But Beans manages to tie up the bad guy in his own trip line. A duck riding a dachshund knocks the bad guy out for a while; he and Beans trade places a few more times before Beans wins the race, just barely. Written by Jon Reeves <jreeves@imdb.com>

Little Man Vs. Big Brute In Entertaining Ski Race
12 November 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

"She was only an ice skater's daughter....." goes the song that accompanies the first minute of this old-fashioned cartoon centered around animals enjoying winter sports. After a bunch of silly but funny sights of different species skating and skiing, we come to the main characters.

A sign says, "Notice: Annual Ski-Race Today - $100,00,000 in prizes or a cool $2 in cash to the winner!"

Some little guy - the star of this cartoon - wants to win the race but a big bully comes by, demolishes his sled and walks away. The little man is undeterred. "I'll show that big stiff," he tells his girlfriend, "Kitty." and quickly makes a new pair of skis.

The rest of it - the bulk of the cartoon - is the big ski race. It reminded me of a Popeye cartoon with Bluto doing everything he can to sabotage the Sailor Man. Here, the big brute sabotages everyone in the race but you just know the little guy will find a way to beat him. Overall, it's pretty entertaining with some decent sight gags. It's not hilarious, but it will keep your interest as it maintains a high level of action.
