'The Ant and the Grasshopper' Woody Woodpecker style
Was very fond of Woody Woodpecker and his cartoons as a child. Still get much enjoyment out of them now as a young adult, even if there are more interesting in personality cartoon characters and better overall cartoons.
That is in no way knocking Woody, because many of his cartoons are a lot of fun to watch and more and also still like him a lot as a character. 'The Redwood Sap' is a very well done Woody Woodpecker take on the story of 'The Ant and the Grasshopper'. It may not be one of Woody's best (hardly among his worst either), it is very easy all the time to see where the cartoon is heading story-wise.
While there are more interesting characters, Woody is an amusing character and never too obnoxious, one feels sorry for him somewhat actually. The other characters bring a lot of charm to 'The Redwood Sap' as well.
As ever, the animation is great. The characters are well drawn, but even better are the rich colours, meticulously detailed backgrounds and smooth backgrounds.
Music is another strength here. It's characterful, lushly orchestrated and is not only dynamic with the action it even enhances it. The writing is amusing and heartfelt and it's a famous story charmingly and amusingly if slightly unimaginatively told.
In conclusion, very well done. 8/10 Bethany Cox
