Ub Iwerks closed his studio with a bang!
29 November 2003 | by (Tucson AZ) – See all my reviews

At least one source lists this short as the last release from Iwerks studio. If that's so, then their swan song was a most impressive finale. The sad thing is, this cartoon is better than the overwhelming majority of the shorts that preceded it, but likely got booked in far fewer theaters, because by that time there was no major studio distribution contract. A beautiful cartoon that's inventive, entertaining and has a cast of characters capable of engaging audiences and sustaining at least a short series, particularly a little wisecracking twerp who has more life and wit in an eyebrow than Flip the Frog and Willie Whopper combined ever did or probably could have. A good script helps out here too. What could have been. Ah, well-that's life. Perhaps it's just as well, as Ub Iwerks eventually wound up back with Disney, where he could work on the technical aspects of animation, virtually to his heart's content. Excellent cartoon, very much worth seeing. Highly recommended.
