Storyline

This one features a cat-versus-mouse football game between two cat-and-mouse colleges, called Harbard and Quinceton, and there is nothing Ivy-League about either school. The highlights are a screwy college fight-song and a statute-of-liberty misdirection football play in which the Statute of Liberty participates. Written by Les Adams <longhorn1939@suddenlink.net>

Very standard but with a lot to enjoy
1 March 2015 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

For a while I have not been the biggest fan of Herman or his cartoons, but that doesn't stop a fair few of his cartoons being good. Campus Capers fortunately is another of the good ones without standing out as one of the best.

Campus Cleaners is colourful and entertaining, but it is also very standard. Not that that is a bad thing necessarily but when the story is just a basic cat and mouse game with not much original, basically a more violent version of Tom and Jerry, and when you can smell the outcome/ending from a mile away that does hurt the cartoon a bit. This was a big flaw, but that aside there was little else wrong and there was a huge amount to enjoy. The animation quality was getting stronger with each cartoon with that for Campus Capers being on the same for the very, very good animation seen in Naughty But Mice. It's very lively and smooth and the colours are vibrant, the characters are drawn well too.

The music is as great as ever as well, it's very distinctive 40s cartoons orchestration and in a good way and it's full of non-stop energy. It doesn't just sound good, but it adds a lot to the energy of the cartoon too, enhancing the humour instead of trivialising. Love the opening title tune and the Mice's song at the start was tuneful. The gags are not really very original but they are still funny and well-timed. They are violent too but they don't get sadistic, certainly not down to the level of Gene Deitch's Tom and Jerry cartoons. Herman is not at his most likable, nor at his least, he at least is quick-thinking, appropriately cunning and witty. Knucklehead, looking like a feline version of Bluto, is an entertaining adversary. All in all, Campus Capers is a standard but enjoyable Herman cartoon. 7/10 Bethany Cox
