While there are no major flaws with this series plot-wise, but when compared to other cartoons from the same time period (I.E. Looney Tunes, Hanna Barbara) the animation quality is lax. Somewhat like modern Japanese cartoons, there is very little in the way of organic movements of the characters.
Instead, characters will be drawn holding a pose with only their mouths or eyes moving, or movement scenes may be looped. It's a good period study of Japanese film, but so far as animations go, not particularly good. If you're looking for a good quality 60's cartoon, doesn't compare to American cartoons.
