Solid Private Snafu cartoon
26 December 2014 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Not one of the best of the Private Snafu series, Spies and Booby Traps are my personal favourites but it is certainly worth watching. There are funnier Snafu cartoons around, by all means it is still fun and amusing but Snafu over-explaining things gets a bit too much, and there are others also in the series that are more daring and have more energy. The animation flows very smoothly though and looks good even now, while the music is lush and lively with good use of pre-existing tunes. Going Home may not be the funniest Private Snafu cartoon around but the humour still succeeds thanks to the witty rhyming dialogue and narration and never-less-than-amusing visual gags. If you are familiar with the formula the series adopts, all revolving around Snafu's ineptness in the army, the story isn't going to hold that many surprises but it's hardly tired or dull and it handles its serious message admirably, laying it on too thick or poking too much fun at it were very easy traps to fall into and Going Home manages to avoid both of them. Snafu as ever is endearing and lots of fun to watch and the narration entertains and teaches, good chemistry between the two too. Frank Graham fills the narrator role beautifully and even better is the versatile and always consistent Mel Blanc, making Snafu a hugely entertaining character as well as a touchingly likable one. All in all, there are better cartoons in the Private Snafu series but Going Home is solid stuff still. 7/10 Bethany Cox
