Why was this cartoon made?
25 August 2002 | by (Tucson AZ) – See all my reviews

While I've seen worse, I kept thinking that this cartoon would have no reason to exist save for the fact that Warner Brothers had a contractual obligation to supply a certain number of shorts to movie theaters, so they fiddled around with film stock, yawned and sent this one out on an unsuspecting and somewhat indifferent world. While my view of the later Warner output is more charitable than others feel is warranted, a few miss the mark for me. This is one. Worth watching once. Recommended for completists.
