The Pelican Brief
12 October 2012 | by See all my reviews

Andy Panda is scrubbing the deck of the ship when he comes across a pelican sleeping on a coil of rope. He gets it off the ship, only to find it has been setting on an egg, which promptly hatches.

There were several attempts at introducing pelicans as regular cartoon characters in the movies. With their ability to get along with people and their silly-looking bills, they would seem to be a natural. None, however, took. This pleasantly done Dick Lundy cartoon has all the hallmarks of an introductory cartoon but, despite its nice composition, including large, bright, simple Technicolor areas, just right for pleasing youngsters and its abundance of pleasing blues, this one is merely average good.
