Interesting and entertaining if a little too heavy on the risqué elements
7 September 2013 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

The Home Front is worth seeing definitely, but Frank Tashlin has done better and there are better Private Snafu cartoons around. That the cartoon is very risqué and daring for the time is very admirable and definitely one of The Home Front's interest points. Those elements are a little over-used though and can get in the way of the gags. The World War 2 references and the depiction of what was happening during the time are also of great interest, but it's also very firmly rooted in that time in history and people will find it somewhat irrelevant now. The Home Front is a long way from a bad cartoon however. It is very well animated in all respects. The music is characterful and lively as you'd expect and synchronises with what's happening on-screen really well. Having the use of Beethoven is a bonus and having it as kind of a code theme is clever, though once or twice is probably enough for the use of the opening bars of the 5th symphony in one cartoon, a great piece of music and surely everybody is familiar with(regardless of whether they like classical music or not) but when used several times it's a little overkill. The gags are well-timed and are at least amusing, the best of them are very funny. The story is nothing special structurally but crisply paced and not attention-wavering-inducing. And Snafu even when being the worst ever soldier/private is a very likable character, while having Mel Blanc on board for the voices is always going to bring a cartoon up a notch or two. On the whole, a good but not great Private Snafu cartoon, it's of good interest value too although the risqué elements are a little too heavily laid on and some may question its relevance now. 7/10 Bethany Cox
