Nice and entertaining
27 June 2011 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

While I am not the biggest fan of the Sylvester vs.Hoppity cartoons, there have been some that I have liked very much and Hop, Look and Listen is one of them. Sure some of the cartoon is very slapsticky and predictable particularly in the middle and Sylvester's character animation lacks consistency here. However, the colours and backgrounds are very nice and colourful, and I loved the quirkiness and energy of the music. Sylvester has some very witty and funny quips, and Hoppity the baby kangaroo is very cute and has the more entertaining visual moments towards the beginning. Mel Blanc does a fine job with the voice characterisations and he always did. In conclusion, a very nice and entertaining cartoon. 8/10 Bethany Cox
