childhood without fantasies is nothing
29 October 2008 | by (Portland, Oregon, USA) – See all my reviews

Semi-sequel to Chuck Jones's earlier "From A to Z-z-z-z", about young daydreamer Ralph Phillips. This time, he accidentally breaks a window, gets sent to his room and has a series of fantasies.

While Ralph Phillips only appeared in these two cartoons (plus an educational cartoon in which he enlists in the army), his wild imagination shows childhood at its most innocent. Who didn't, as a child, imagine himself/herself having all sorts of neat adventures? In my opinion, the fine troika of fictional daydreaming characters is Ralph Phillips, Walter Mitty and Calvin (of "Calvin and Hobbes"). I certainly never would have thought up "Martians who got straight A's in arithmetic". I recommend "Boyhood Daze".
