Not your usual Warner Bros cartoon, but very cute
2 January 2013 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I say this as a fan of Merrie Melodies/Warner Bros/Looney Tunes since goodness knows how long. Anybody expecting the usual will be surprised for either the better or worse depending on who you are. While unusual for me Bartholomew Versus the Wheel was still a well done cartoon. Sure, some of the backgrounds are rather crudely drawn and the colours could have done with being less sparse. The music though is catchy and fittingly orchestrated, if not in the same league as Carl Stalling, and the stylised character designs were interesting and easy on the eyes at least. There are some amusing moments too, while the story is endearingly cute without being overly sentimental. Bartholomew as a title character is delightful and immediately identifiable. Mel Blanc's voice work is outstanding as you would expect from one of the greatest voice actors of all time.

All in all, very cute if unusual. 8/10 Bethany Cox
