Storyline

Bobo the Elephant is baseball team mascot for the lean and meek Sweetwater Shnooks, all of whom are rendered unconscious by their opponents, the husky and brutal Greenville Goons. The Shnooks' manager, rather than forfeit the game, decides to bring in Bobo to play every position - and he does rather well! Written by Kevin McCorry <mmccorry@nb.sympatico.ca>

Very funny
6 June 2011 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

This is not the best of McKimson's animated shorts, I feel it is too short and one or two parts felt rushed. However, I loved the humour, the gags are plentiful and come by thick and fast, and there is some hilarious dialogue including the what I call classic quotes "there is nothing in the rule book saying elephants can't pitch, so PLAY BALL!" and "that was a strike...WHAM!...I don't like you". The animation is very colourful and vibrant with very nice colours and backgrounds and the characters are decently drawn, the music is energetic as you would expect from Carl Stalling, BoBo the elephant is so adorable and Mel Blanc's voice work is superb. All in all, very funny and enjoyable.8/10 Bethany Cox
