Inferior to Three Orphan Kittens but cute all the same
I happen to love Three Orphan Kittens, it was cute, quite touching and fun. I find More Kittens not as good, with the story rather routine and lacking force, the Mammy character is rather stereotypical and could be seen as offensive to some people and the dog doesn't have much to do that is interesting, most of the time he is just there and the kittens and whatever lands in the folds of the dog's mouth do the work. However, while not the most technically accomplished or sophisticated, the animation is very pretty with the characters beautifully drawn, the colours lush and the backgrounds suitably colourful. The music also has a energetic and pastoral feel to it. The kittens are very sweet characters and it is easy to relate to them, even if there are more interesting characters in the Silly Symphonies series. I also loved the gag with the bird whistling Who's Afraid of the Big Bad Wolf, keeping being pushed out by the dog's tongue in cuckoo-clock style. All in all, cute and well animated but inferior sequel. 7/10 Bethany Cox
