Fun stuff and one of the better 60s Looney Tunes cartoons
31 July 2013 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Saying that Mouse and Garden is one of the better 60s Looney Tunes cartoons is saying a fair bit actually. Some cartoons like this were good though not up the standards of the Looney Tunes cartoons of the 40-50s, some like the middling Roadrunner/Wile E. Coyote efforts ranged from mediocre to relatively decent and it also saw some dreck like Pre-Hysterical Hare, Devil's Feud Cake and the worst of the Daffy-Speedy cartoons. The cartoon at times is a little rushed and some of the detail and character designs in the animation can lack finesse. The colours are nice to look at and the main setting is effective. The music is composed with beautiful orchestration and energetic character, Carl Stalling is a superior composer but Milt Franklin stands very well on his own indeed. The writing has freshness and wit, and the visual gags are well timed and never less than amusing. Sylvester is still his usual funny and charismatic self, but fellow cat Sam steals the show this time round, a hilarious character that makes you ask the question why you don't see him more. Mel Blanc and Daws Butler give superb vocal characterisations, no surprise as they are two of the greatest ever voice actors who added so much to everything they did. Overall, fun stuff indeed. 8/10 Bethany Cox
