Not bad at all, in fact one of the better late-60s Merry Melodies cartoons
27 December 2012 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

My reaction to the late-60s Merry Melodies cartoons has either been indifference or negativity. So I was surprised at how decent Chimp and Zee was. It is nowhere near as good as the cartoons of the 40s-50s(early 60s weren't so bad either actually), but compared to most of the Speedy vs. Daffy and late Roadrunner vs. Coyote cartoons it is watchable. Admittedly the story is rather thin on the ground and most of the gags are more amusing than they are laugh-a-minute hilarity. Plus the main foible with Chimp and Zee is the quality of the animation, which is not too great, rather limited and flatly coloured for my liking. However, Bill Lava's music is awesome here, easily one of his better and catchier scores. If there is a moment in Chimp and Zee that is very funny, it is with the blow-gun and the elephant. The ape gets top billing and is a fun character, but the show-stealer is the hunter, a character actually that makes one wonder why he wasn't in any more of the Merry Melodies cartoons. Mel Blanc's vocals, mainly the sophisticated English accent for the hunter, are outstanding, not unusual considering that we are talking about one of the greatest voice actors ever here. In conclusion, not a masterpiece but for the period Chimp and Zee is quite good. 7/10 Bethany Cox
