Just lovely
4 September 2013 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

The Sleepwalker doesn't see Pluto at his best and is not one of his best shorts. It does have the odd repetitive moment that are effective the first time but not sustained for the others. That doesn't matter, as The Sleepwalker is still very cute and touching and does provide some laughs. They are not the laugh-out-loud-hilarious kind, but they are at least funny which is much more important. The premise was a good, sweet one to begin with, and the storytelling itself is every bit as cute and heartfelt and doesn't underwhelm its premise at all. The ending is very touching, Pluto is an energetic and endearing character who is easy to root for and Dinah makes a most charming debut. The puppies are also very sweet. And visually and musically The Sleepwalker is without complaint either. The animation is of the bright, colourful and fluid quality, while the music is lively, lushly orchestrated and adds so much to what is happening in the gags and the animation. Overall, a just lovely short that does live up to its premise. 9/10 Bethany Cox
