Leaves one hungry for turkey...
4 January 2014 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Cold Turkey is not much different concept-wise from Pluto's other cartoon shorts and the fighting over the turkey may be tiring for some, when the solution is so easy. However, The gags that aside are still hilarious fun to watch, especially the ones the commercials, the garbage can and cooler. The gag with things melting is potentially repetitive but the different objects still make it varied and funny. The animation is colourful and nicely drawn, while the characterful and lush orchestration and lively energy- also succeeding in enhancing the action- of the music is still maintained. The jingle Lurkey Turkey is very catchy, though not in an annoying way, and it is very hard not to love it. Cold Turkey is very well-paced and Pluto and the cat Milton are a delightful pairing, not just because their chemistry makes sense but they are treated equally in the writing department, there isn't the one-character-making-a-better-impression-than-the-other vibe as other Pluto cartoons have done. Pluto is still cute and likable and Milton is slightly funnier but also crafty and endearing.

In conclusion, a little on the routine side but Cold Turkey is colourful, has great chemistry between Pluto and Milton and provides a lot of laughs, definitely leaves one hungry for turkey. 9/10 Bethany Cox
