The 26 Little Lulu cartoons made during 1944-1948 (and the two made in the early 60s) were uneven (individually and the series as a general overview) but watchable.
While there are, previous to 'Bored of Education', some good or more Little Lulu cartoons such as 'Hullaba-Lulu', 'Magica-Lulu' and 'Beau Ties', there are also mediocre or less ones such as 'Lulu Gets a Birdie', 'Lulu at the Zoo' and 'Lulu's Birthday Party' (two of those three having the character of Mandy as one of the main problems). 'Chick and 'Double Chick' is one of the best Little Lulu cartoons, very like as was said with the previous cartoon 'Bored of Education'.
Even though the story is slight and slightly repetitive in places, the chemistry between Little Lulu, Pal and the cat is inspired and the physical comedy is never less than very amusing and often induce good hearty laughs without being gratuitously violent, mean-spirited or over-engineered.
As to be expected, the animation is nice. The style of it may take some getting used to but when you compare this cartoon to Little Lulu's debut 'Eggs Don't Bounce' the difference is staggering, here the drawing is more refined and the colours more vibrant. Winston Sharples' music score is whimsical, beautifully orchestrated and characterful as always. The main song is infectious.
Little Lulu is engaging without being too cutesy or bratty, while Pal manages the perfect balance of sweet and entertaining, also one feels bad about his potential situation. The cat is a wonderfully sly adversary. The chick's adorability factor goes sky-high through the roof, though one doesn't like Little Lulu's father much here.
On the whole, very nice and entertaining and one of the better Little Lulu cartoons. 9/10 Bethany Cox
