Has its moments but personally I didn't find it that great
29 April 2010 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

There are some good things to Conrad the Sailor, primarily the excellent voice acting of Mel Blanc and Pinto Colvig(original voice of Goofy). The music was very nice, Conrad singing Shoving Right Off From Home Again was a nice touch. One or two of the visual gags are funny, namely the chase around the deck and when Conrad fires the deck gun with Daffy in it. However, what didn't impress is that the other jokes don't work, they are either unfunny or repetitive and the dialogue is lame on the most part. Also the animation isn't up the usual standard, instead of being colourful and solid, it looks somewhat dull, and Conrad especially is drawn poorly. Speaking of Conrad, the only exceptional element to him was Colvig's voicing, other than that he is a very dull foil for Daffy. As for Daffy, we all know he has a wacky, manic and outrageous persona, though he can be cruel as well, but the poor dialogue does not put him to good use. Finally, the pacing, there are some cartoons that suffer slightly from being a little too quick, though others are perfect, but the pacing if anything was too slow here. Overall, it had its moments but sorry I didn't think it was that great, that was furthermore spoilt by an abrupt ending. 4/10 Bethany Cox
