One of the better Sylvester vs.Hoppity cartoons
26 June 2011 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I am not a huge fan of this particular series either, though I adore Looney Tunes. Too Hop to Handle is for me one of the better cartoons with Sylvester vs. Hoppity cartoons. I do think the cartoon could've been longer and a little less rushed, but while the story was standard it was entertaining thanks to the good dialogue and the well-thought out gags. The animation is colourful and quite lush compared to some of the other entries of this series, and the music is as infectious as ever. Sylvester takes the laughs well, and Hoppity is cute and doesn't feel like a plot device like he can be. Mel Blanc does a stellar job with the voices. All in all, a good cartoon and one of the better ones featuring these two characters. 8/10 Bethany Cox
