'Pinhead' And The Gang
8 May 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The hero of this story is "Pinhead," a term I never hear outside of "The O'Reilly Factor," where the host calls dopey people "pinheads." Here, the neighborhood kids call the wimpy, little one "Pinhead." He's obviously the outcast of the group.

The gang wants to go fishing but don't want him around. However, they can't find any worms but Pinhead finds them (at the golf course, in a strange scene.) What happens with the fishing is pretty good; not laugh-out-loud stuff but mildly entertaining and better and better as the cartoon goes on. Without spoiling anything, let's just say Pinhead has some wild adventures.

I've read where this was the last of the Ub Iwerks cartoons, so it is noteworthy for that, if nothing else. It's also in color. This cartoon was viewed on a DVD called "Cartoons That Time Forget: The UB Iwerks Collection Vol. 1."
