Even the lesser ones in this series keep a high standard
7 February 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

It took me quite a while to come around to this one as a favorite, but there's a helluva lotta animation expertise and comic timing that go into it. High Points Of Animation: Art Davis' virtuosic rendering of Sylvester wrestling with the crab (and the crab's immediate dancing back into the sea); also, just about all of Gerry Chiniquy's work--but especially the seagull sequence, and also the scene of Sylvester waterskiing (for a while I thought this was Davis, but Chiniquy's apparently responsible for the last couple minutes. Pink Panther fans take note: Sylvester's surfing routine here bears a very strong resemblance the the big cat's famous wipeout!
