Figaro the kitten vs Cleo the goldfish
24 April 2012 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I love this cartoon. It is funny and cute, with great chemistry between the two title characters and good gags. Mammy Twoshoes is a tad stereotypical I agree, but not in an offensive way. The exuberance of the music and the beautiful animation are the best assets of Figaro and Cleo. And Figaro and Cleo, two great characters from the Disney masterpiece Pinocchio, are just wonderful, Figaro is so cute with facial expressions to die for and Cleo is just as beautiful and endearing as the animation.

Overall, Figaro and Cleo is a great cartoon. It is not one of my favourites of all time, but I still love it for the quality of the animation and music and also because these two characters work so well together. One would wish there were more cartoons of them together. 10/10 Bethany Cox
