The best of a very short and not terribly effective series.
This was the best of a very short series of cartoons that was a misfired attempt playing on the Three Bears, with thoroughly unlikable characters, including Papa, a lazy, mean and obnoxious fellow, Mama, not much better than Papa and Baby, a cute cipher with no real personality to speak of and consequently most irritating. Production values are good and the story is good, with some funny moments, but MGM fared much better with the character of Barney Bear, with some endearing qualities mixed in with the gruffness. This series isn't anywhere near the same league as the considerably funnier Warner Brothers take on the same fairy tale and died quickly. This particular short has a good ending, but I've seen better (and worse) in my time. Average at best. Worth watching, but don't try too hard to find it unless you collect MGM cartoons. For completeists.
