"We just got rid of that sheriff. He just rapped his funnel on the tunnel"
28 April 2011 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Like Bunny and Claude beforehand, The Great Carrot-Train Robbery was decent. It is far from the best Merrie Melodies cartoon, but there have been a lot worse. This isn't as efficiently paced as its predecessor, though it is fast and furious it's just that Bunny and Claude was delivered at pretty much breakneck speed.

The animation isn't amazing, but it is of okay quality and I did love its wacky style. Bill Lava's music is as energetic as before, if not quite as driven or as fresh with the alternating of the 60s organ-guitar groove and banjo idea. But I still loved the main theme, which is rootin' tootin' catchy.

The dialogue is nice and droll, witty and fresh maybe not, but acceptable. I loved the sight gags, the closing gag especially cracks me up, and the sound effects are fun. Bunny and Claude are as sly and likable as ever, and the Sheriff is deliciously incompetent. And once again, Mel Blanc and Pat Woodell's voice work is top notch.

So overall, a decent cartoon, never reaching masterpiece status but it is not an abomination either. 7/10 Bethany Cox
