Aria Noelle Curzon,
This is the continuing adventures of Charlie and Itchy of "All Dogs Go To Heaven" movie fame. Now the pair are living in San Francisco, doing missions for Heaven on Earth, as directed by the head canine angel, Annabelle. Whenever they're not working, Charlie has some sort of scam going that tends to need Annabelle to teach him a lesson. Written by

I really like, if not completely love, the first All Dogs Go to Heaven especially for the animation, characters and how touching it is. I always have felt however that it does get a little clumsy and too dark in places and I don't care for the songs. On the whole though it is one of Don Bluth's more memorable movies. All Dogs Go to Heaven 2 has a lot of problems like the poor animation, the rushed storyline, Annabelle's voice irritating me and the fact that Carface is reduced to a bumbling sidekick, but it did have some pleasant songs, a great score, good voice acting and I do like Sasha. Plus it is far better than the Secret of NIMH sequel, that is awful. All Dogs Christmas Carol I thought was good, it was a nice twist on the famous story if not on the same level of the original film.
This series is also good, I'd say it is the best since the original, if not as good. The animation is nice and colourful, not the dark lusciousness of the original but much less scrappy than the second. The songs on the whole are lovely, some are more memorable than others but the overall standard is sweet and not too sickly. The dialogue does have some corniness but is mostly amusing and well-meaning and the story-lines are engaging, not rushed and sometimes touching. I've always liked the characters and I still do here. True, Carface for my tastes could have been more ruthless and calculating but this didn't actually bother me anywhere near as much as it did in the second film. However, Itchy and Killer are very funny, Annabelle while not as angelic as in the original is much less irritating, Charlie is still the rough-around-the edges but likable canine we either warm to or know and love and Sasha is very appealing as ever. The voice acting is very good, the standouts are Dom DeLuise, Sheena Easton and Ernest Borgnine, though Steven Weber also does a good job, Charles Nelson Reilly has good comic timing and Bebe Neuwith is much more subtle than she is in the second.
Overall, a good series. 7/10 Bethany Cox
