Outstanding animation and music, but the cartoon is a little too cutesy
16 January 2010 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Don't get me wrong, I really liked this. The animation is outstanding, with excellent character movements and very nice colours. The music is absolutely beautiful, lyrical and bouncy, and I thought I even heard a snippet of Schubert's Unfinished symphony, great stuff that. And there seemed to be a sort of variation on the Midsommer Night's Dream Overture by Mendelssohn. Also the voice work from Mel Blanc and Bernice Hanson is truly excellent. And I liked the story, and the characters; the squirrels are sweet and the fox crafty. However, the cartoon is a little too cutesy for me, especially the song about the Robin Hood fighting. Also whereas there are cartoons that are loaded to the brim with gags, this is merely one joke. No problem with that strictly speaking, but the cartoon could've done with more humour and less of the whimsical feeling. All in all, too cute for me but nice to watch. 7/10 Bethany Cox
