Stallings' Music About The Only Highlight
23 May 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I really don't know why this is called "Little Boy Blue" since his character plays a minor role in this story.

The hero of the fairy tale is the scarecrow, not Little Boy Blue who only enters the "action" in the last 30 seconds of the cartoon after the scarecrow had defeated the "big, bad wolf." Earlier we saw scenes in which led to the climactic final, how one black sheep in the group inadvertently helped the wolf in going after the other lambs.

Overall, this is a very weak Iwerks' effort because there is almost no humor to this cartoon. The only saving grace is an excellent "score" by one of the best-ever in the business, Carl Stallings. The music is here will get your attention more than the story or visuals.
