An American football game worthy of the Marx Brothers!
26 August 2002 | by (Tucson AZ) – See all my reviews

This is as bizarre a game as the one the Marx Brothers "played" in Horse Feathers! It's also an opportunity to see the main characters as children. Wimpy still looks like Wimpy and acts like Wimpy and the other characters are younger version of themselves as well. Wonderful cartoon and one of my favorites. Well worth watching. Recommended.
