"One of these days, Alice, one of these days, POW, right in the kisser!"
29 May 2013 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I know of The Honey-Mooners, but I've never seen it. That didn't stop me from really enjoying The Honey-Mousers, which just goes to prove that anything when done well can work on its own. The animation is clean and luscious with good attention to detail and well-drawn characters. Milt Franklin's music compliments everything beautifully, I am more a Carl Stalling fan myself but Franklin also has that ability to write jaunty orchestration and to make it merge with the action with no problem at all. The writing and gags are delightfully fresh and witty, Alice has the best lines and the Trojan Dog sequence is a classic, Ralph's closing remark also(the Sylvester and Tweety cartoon Red Riding Hoodwinked also uses it). Admittedly a couple of the references went over my head, which is mostly likely due- as said already- to not being familiar with the originating material, but that wasn't a major issue really. The mice- Alice being the tougher and possibly funnier of the two despite her size suggesting otherwise- are hugely entertaining characters, and June Foray and Daws Butler help to also make very lovable too. To conclude, great fun and highly recommended. 9/10 Bethany Cox
