An exceptional Flip the Frog!
9 November 2003 | by (Tucson AZ) – See all my reviews

For the most part, the screen career of Flip the Frog was undistinguished and that's being kind. In a handful of cases, however, the style was almost matched by the substance. This is one of those times. The cartoon is funny, biting and satirical. Flip actually displays some energy and a bit of personality in spots. There are some touching moments as well as some exceptionally funny sight gags. There's a certain pancake with maple syrup and butter prominent in its future! Visually fine with enough story to actually hang something somewhat solid on. This one more or less holds its own and is worth the price of admission. Ub Iwerks would probably have lasted considerably longer as an independent if he'd done quite a few more as good as this one. Good to have it on DVD. Well worth having and highly recommended.
