Speedy vs. a slow-witted crow
8 May 2010 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

The story here is fairly routine, but this Speedy cartoon is very watchable. The animation is a considerable improvement over most Speedy cartoons, and the music is a nice touch. Also helping are some sharp dialogue and funny sight gags as Speedy outwits a slow witted crow. Speedy is tolerable and funny, while the crow is a great foil, personally I think he is better a foil for Speedy than Daffy and Sylvester put together. As always, the vocal characterisations from Mel Blanc are absolutely stellar, I love Blanc and always have, he is so entertaining and pretty much immortalises the Looney Tunes cartoons on his own. Overall, if you ignore the routine story line, this is lots of fun for a Speedy cartoon. 8/10 Bethany Cox
