Worth watching for Donald and Humphrey
3 April 2012 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

The story is routine, and it is not until about just under half-way through that something funny happens. And when that happens, while more amusing than hilarious(the HUMPHREY PINCHED ME line is an example of the latter though) the gags are still plentiful and imaginative. The animation is colourful and vibrant, even the lagging lip-sync and scratchy picture quality of the Youtube video couldn't hide that, and the music has great energy and beauty. But Bearly Asleep is worth watching for Donald and Humphrey. Donald is wonderfully temperamental, but I found the scene-stealer to be Humphrey. I find him adorable and very lovable, and on several occasions here I felt sorry for him especially when he was out in the cold looking for somewhere to hibernate, and was glad when he got a happy ending.

Overall, not amazing but amusing and worth watching for the two lead characters. 8/10 Bethany Cox
