Works absolutely beautifully in every way
19 July 2012 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Maybe Polar Trappers is not quite one of Disney's very best, however it is a cartoon that I am very fond of. The idea is simple, but is effective in that. Also as much as I do like Mickey, when the trio were together or individually I always found Goofy and especially Donald funnier characters. Goofy and Donald are here as a duo, when you discover that before watching it just screams of comedy gold. And it is exactly that, although like with other cartoons with just the duo I find Donald to be the stronger character(I just love the gag where he dresses up in a black tuxedo to impersonate a penguin and manages to fool a female penguin) Goofy is just as likable and his big gag with the icicle-covered cave was just as inspired. It isn't all funny though, Donald fooling the penguins in Pied Piper-style is exceedingly cute and the finale is one of those crash-landing action-packed ones. The animation is full of colour and smoothness, and the music especially in the penguin impersonation gag and the march of the penguins really helps to enhance the action. The sound effects are also well-incorporated, with the best being that of the baby penguin's tears evolving into the snowball. In conclusion, a great cartoon that works beautifully. 10/10 Bethany Cox
