While I'm not sure just when Figaro moved to...wherever Pluto lived in the late 40's, I'm not complaining, because this is fun. The plot is good, and well-told... not a single spoken or written word, yet we follow it without any problems. This was featured on the DVD of Pinocchio, which is how I watched it. Recently, anyway. The humor is great, and universal. The gags and jokes are almost all realized skillfully and are entertaining, and this doesn't suffer too much under repetition of material. There is some cartoon violence in this, as with many of its brethren, young and old alike. The sound is well-done, though not as synchronized or as much of a tool as the Silly Symphonies pieces. The animation is nice, most everything is conveyed well. Music is spot-on. It's part of the drive of this entire short. There is no actual moralizing herein, but there is some moral to be found. The personalities are easy to relate to and understand. I recommend this to any fan of these animated cartoons, especially those who love the two already-mentioned characters. 7/10
