Cute and quirky
16 July 2010 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I too originally saw this on Daffy Duck's Quackbusters, and while Punch Trunk is not my favourite from the film I like it. Why? Because it is cute and quirky. The story is slight, and the humour isn't necessarily thick-and-fast and madcap, but what is funny is the surrealism, like one review said. Also the cartoon does have some very nice animation, some sweet music and the tiny elephant is simply adorable even if it does wreak havoc. The supporting characters are good enough, though the little elephant steals the cartoon. Overall, nice enough if nothing absolutely outstanding. It is very sweet, cute and quirky, and is just a nice watch really. 8/10 Bethany Cox
