A funny, manic cartoon
13 March 2004 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Called in from chasing a couple of cats, Wellington the dog is dispatched by his owner to deliver a package of great importance to a relative. Wellington is warned of the importance of not letting go of the package - a fact that the two cats play on in order to get revenge on the dog for chasing them in the first place.

What starts out as a sort of cats being chased by big dog cartoon quickly turns into a manic fight between three characters over a package. The action sees the cats pretending to be trains (by smoking cigars!), playing American Football with the package and generally doing all sorts of crazy stuff with it. It is all very rough but it is very funny at times. The ending is a solid punchline that only adds to the craziness that has gone before it.

The lack of famous characters is not a problem here, as the three players are rough and ready and really fit the action. The yare animated with character but not with smooth careful lines. Instead they have a manic look to them that really fits the comedy. Both cats reminded me of Daffy Duck in his crazy period and Wellington himself plays both the bulldog type character but also shares the laughs.

Overall, if you like manic imaginative cartoons then this one should please you. The gags will mostly be familiar to you from other cartoons but that's not to say they can't still be funny - and delivered in a fast paced and energetic cartoon like this, they are funny!
