The brochures in a travel agency come to life. After a series of quick gags (flying fish in airplanes, a wave washing swimmers out to sea and back, etc). , there's a musical interlude featuring a tuba from Cuba. Two Hungary boys are lured by the Cook Island; they grab the Twin Forks from Montana, and add Turkey to their plates, then stop by the Sandwich Islands, Hamburg, Chili, Oyster Bay, and finally a cup of Java. A thief from Bagdad visits the Kimberly Diamond Mines, but awakes a sleeping baby, who Wales. This alerts Central (America), who calls Radio City, which contacts all countries. A group of bobbies, Mounties, Scotland Yard, and others pursue, while the thief is visiting a Pawnee shop. He tries to hide in the fog of London, but it's blown away by a windmill. A dude ranch hand ropes him, then drags him through the Red, Black, and Yellow Seas, and onto the back of the Lone Stranger's horse. They ride off, noting that he's not alone any more.

Not on the same level as Have You Got any Castles and Book Revue, still makes for good entertainment though
18 October 2013 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Have You Got Any Castles and Book Revue are classics and proof that the object-come-to-life formula can work. It still does work in You're An Education, just not as well. Travel brochures are not the most exciting of objects to base a cartoon on admittedly, but You're An Education does a credible job still. The cartoon could have been paced more crisply, and the middle section is not quite as inspired or as funny as the beginning and end, it drags a little here and the gags are much stronger at the start and end. The animation is beautifully drawn though and the colours are done very charmingly. The music is put to really clever use, maintaining the character of every gag, place and character it's accompanying and making it sound good. The gags are on the most part very well done, they come thick and fast at the beginning and they work, but the cleverest part is the final one, also where the visuals are the most impressive. There isn't much of a story to speak of, in fact You're An Education is pretty much plot less, but it doesn't come across as too much of an excuse to string the gags together and it could have been easier to do that. The characters and locations are colourful, and we have exuberant vocals from Billy Bletcher and especially Mel Blanc. Overall, good entertainment but not the best example of the formula that it bases itself around. 8/10 Bethany Cox
