Nice enough, but nothing particularly memorable
27 June 2011 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Cheese it, The Cat! is a nice enough cartoon. However, in my view it is nothing particularly memorable either. The animation is quite good, the characters are drawn well and the colours and backgrounds are attractive. The music is energetic and tongue in cheek, the characters are likable and Daws Butler's voice work is outstanding. Mel Blanc as the cat is also good, while he only has one line excluding the numerous meows and such he is required to me, he does do something fun with it. On the other hand, the story is rather predictable and thin, and one or two of the gags had the sense you knew what was going to happen. The writing was decent and the gags in general are interesting, but they aren't particularly funny in my opinion. The funniest Cheese it, the Cat! gets is the last thirty seconds, and those last thirty seconds are actually very amusing. All in all, nice but somewhat unmemorable apart from the last thirty seconds and the voice work. 6/10 Bethany Cox
