Very Funny and *Almost* Prophetic
27 July 2001 | by See all my reviews

This is a fantastic although sadly forgotten cartoon. Sourpuss's encounters with various new inventions, such as dehydrated food and a very large television which features a lovely lady greatly resembling Jessica Rabbit are hilarious. There's something fascinating about 1940's images of the "future," and this one isn't terribly far off (although I'm still waiting for that robot butler). This film also has a great and very catchy score by Philip Scheib.
