You gotta love Bongo!, 1 October 2009
Author: TheLittleSongbird from United Kingdom

While just a minor classic to some, Bongo is very cute and memorable for others including myself. The animation is stunning, considering when it was made way back in 1947; a lot of detail went into making this and it showed. The music was a treat to the ears, with a mix of humorous and poignant motifs, and the songs were beautiful and I think memorable too. I love the character Bongo, he is simply adorable. So were the chipmunks, and all the other forest animals. I liked Dinah Shore's narration, it was quite sensitive and fun, and while the cartoon is very simple in terms of story, kids will definitely love it, and adults who grew up loving this will still find it easy to like. 10/10 Bethany Cox
