The last Little Audrey cartoon and one of her weaker ones
31 January 2017 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Like as was said with 'Surf Bored' and 'Fishing Tackler', 'Dawg Gawn' is very much one of the weaker Little Audrey cartoons from personal opinion, with the same strengths and flaws of those two. Not bad as such, just that it is a cartoon that doesn't really utilise what made the best Little Audrey cartoons work so well.

Starting with what is good about 'Dawg Gawn', the animation is rich and colourful, with very meticulous and beautifully drawn backgrounds, a darker but no less luscious colour palette and well-rendered character designs that don't look too stiff. Winston Sharples provides yet another outstanding music score, even in mediocre or worse cartoons Sharples' music was never among the flaws (if anything always one of the strengths or the best asset).

Also love the lusciousness of the orchestration here and how characterful, haunting and whimsical the music was without going overboard in either, even better was how well it fitted in the cartoon and how it merged with the action. The main song is very infectious too.

There are a couple of amusing and cute moments, while Little Audrey is charming without being too sweet and Pal is adorable. The voice acting is good.

However, the story is structurally thin, and is so slight (even for a Little Audrey cartoon) that it struggles to have enough material for the whole 6 minutes it runs. Yet another example also of a Little Audrey cartoon that doesn't work as successfully when not based around a dream or message.

'Dawg Gawn' is very much hit and miss when it comes to the writing. Parts are amusing but others feel tired and too much cuteness replaces imagination and consistent humour. The ending also has too much of a "that's it?" feel.

All in all, watchable but really not one of Little Audrey's best, in the way 'Song of the Birds', 'Butterscotch and Soda' and 'The Seapreme Court' are. 5/10 Bethany Cox
