predictable, but still very funny
6 October 2006 | by See all my reviews

You know, I had never really liked Baby Huey much until I saw this cartoon. Baby Huey really can be appallingly stupid, which is unusual for a cartoon's protagonist. But watching poor Huey's mother try so desperately to have a child, only to end up with an enormous and doltish Huey, is somewhat endearing, as is her never-ending optimism and love for her son, even after everyone else declares him a menace and a loser. Huey's enormous size and appetite frustrates everyone in the barnyard, and they eventually banish him and his mother. As they're leaving, their fellow ducks are attacked by a wolf. Thankfully Huey's size also comes with super-natural strength and resilience, and the poor wolf proves no match for Huey's innocent "games." This cartoon is fairly well-animated and very entertaining, even if the ending is obvious from the start. It's still sweet and actually has me now rooting a bit for poor, brainless Huey.
