Watchable, but it isn't that great, 28 February 2010
Author: TheLittleSongbird from United Kingdom

Don't get me wrong, I love these Disney cartoons they were part of my childhood, but this is one of my least favourites. There are a few funny moments, such as when Pluto gets the boomerang lodged in his mouth, the music is excellent and the voice acting from Pinto Colvig and James McDonald was well done. However, the cartoon gets stuck by being too routine and predictable, there are a few funny parts but the rest is only mildly amusing. While there is some vibrant colouring with the Australian rain forest, some of the character animation looked somewhat awkward. I also want to say I loved this cartoon when I was little, but watching from a 17 year old perspective, it has lost its magic. Overall, it is watchable, but I for one was disappointed being an avid Disney fan. 6/10 Bethany Cox
