Fun if not wholly remarkable
26 December 2012 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I have said many times that Disney was a huge part of my childhood and I still love many of their movies, shorts and shows. R'Coon Dawg admittedly was not one of those shorts that I grew up with so it's not really something that deems as particularly special to me. It is also not really a favourite now, the story while fun and energetic is not much new and is very routine in places. But the pluses far outweigh the minuses in R'Coon Dawg. Starting with the animation, which is, as is almost always with Disney, wonderful with its lush colours and fluid and detailed backgrounds. The music and sound effects I have always deemed as an asset that adds so much to an animated short, whether it is Disney or not. The music is still the catchy and beautifully orchestrated music I love to hear, and serves its expected purpose with no problems to speak of. I am especially fond of that of the opening credits. The gags are not the most original, but they are still very amusing and don't feel too brief or drawn-out. The characters are what drive R'Coon Dawg. Mickey and Pluto are their usual likable selves, but the star is the raccoon, a character that is not just smarter than them but also the one that we actually feel the most sympathy for. To sum things up, R'Coon Dawg is a fun short but at the same time I don't consider it a remarkable one. 8/10 Bethany Cox
