Okay, but nothing special about this one.

This one is proof that nobody does great work all the time. UPA did wonderful work most of the time. But everyone can have an off day. Though this is cute in spots, it's not a terribly good (or bad) cartoon. It's just there most of the time, with a marginally interesting, ultimately silly plot. Worth watching once. For UPA fans.
