Cute in spots, but formulaic (and an old formula at that)
5 October 2004 | by See all my reviews

Famous Studios was nowhere near the top of heap (not that they'd ever been very close to start with) by the late 1950s. A prime example is this short.

While it's a cute cartoon and has its moments, it's a travelogue style cartoon. Tex Avery, who perfected the style, did Detouring America in 1939.

Even if this cartoon had been done ten years earlier, it would have been in the middle of the pack. There's nothing special here. Children will probably enjoy this, but there's a very quaint, "been there, done that" feel here for anyone who follows animated shorts. It's by no means a bad cartoon, but it's not a very good one either. Several days late and a great many dollars short. Good for kids and for completeists.
