Not Much Said, But A Lot To See
25 April 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

There is a lot to see in this old Flip The Frog cartoon. For instance, right near the beginning we see a farm scene with about a dozen animals in it, all doing cartoonish-things, along with dancing trees. Everything is moving to the music. Actually, that's how the things goes throughout as only a word or two is spoken. Most of it is either pantomime or singing a song or two.

A horse pulling an attractive female frog throws a shoe. Luckily for them, the village smitty is right there so the horse - the most entertaining character in the cartoon - goes to get re- soled. A few wacky things happen after that, thanks to a pretty funny but brutal horse fly.

Overall, it's dated but it has enough sight gags to make it worth a look. This was the fourth cartoon in a series of old ones in a DVD called "Cartoons That Time Forget: The UB Iwerks Collection Vol. 1."
