One of the better late-60s WB cartoons, but also under-appreciated, 30 May 2013
Author: TheLittleSongbird from United Kingdom

I have been a lifelong fan of the Looney Tunes/Warner Brothers cartoons, but the late-60s output(the dark age I've heard it being called) has been largely disappointing. There are a few good ones though, and Norman Normal is one of the better ones. The animation has been more fluid and detailed before Norman Normal, but it's still colourful and nice to look at, much better-looking than the Daffy/Speedy output in particular. The music is memorable, more than listenable and fits well with the humour, one of Bill Lava's- his scoring I have been mixed on- better late-60s WB efforts. The theme song is very catchy. The writing is very satirical and it is suitably witty and the best of it makes your sides split from laughing. The visual gags and sound effects are clever and imaginative too, the modern atmosphere is very nicely depicted, done in a way that never jars, and there are effective scenes like Norman refusing to laugh at the minority group joke. The characters are fun and Norman is a likable protagonist. The voice acting is solid too, though you do miss Mel Blanc. All in all, under-appreciated and highly effective cartoon, not WB at their absolute best or in their heyday but considering we're talking about their dark era here Norman Normal is one of their better ones by quite some considerable margin. 9/10 Bethany Cox
