Toby Tortoise returns in a sequel in a sequel just as good as The Tortoise and the Hare, 11 June 2012
Author: TheLittleSongbird from United Kingdom

I have always loved Disney Silly Symphonies, and I always found The Tortoise and the Hare to be one of their best. Toby Tortoise Returns is just as great. The animation doesn't quite have the stylistic touches of Tortoise and the Hare, but is still of the colourful and fluid quality, and the music has much energy and helps to enhance the action. The story is interesting and constantly entertains whether you are a boxing fan or not, and of the scenes making up Toby Tortoise Returns the standouts were Toby's dream sequence showing Jenny Wren lookalikes, showing what Toby would rather be doing instead, and the gag where Max Hare(still a conceited bully) puts the fireworks in Toby's shell and it backfires. Toby Tortoise Returns is also worth watching not just for Max and Toby's contrasting personalities but also the cameos the Mae West caricature of Jenny Wren(from Who Killed Cock Robin?), the Three Little Pigs and the ambulance driver from Pluto's Judgement Day. The referee reminds me very much of Droopy Dog. Overall, just as good a sequel to one of Disney's best. 9/10 Bethany Cox
