Lesser Private Snafu cartoon, but still amusing
10 July 2014 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Snafuperman is a good-looking and amusing cartoon, but as far as Private Snafu cartoons go I do prefer The Goldbrick(apart from the Japanese Goldbrick character). The story does feel a little thin even for a cartoon so short a length and the point about the concept not been particularly inspiring or interesting is understandable and to me that is also the reason. Snafuperman does put its moral across well enough, if on the forceful side. It's also one of the tamest Snafu cartoons, after seeing parts of The Goldbrick and especially The Home Front- though you may argue that The Home Front is a bit heavy on the daring stuff-, not that it's a problem as such but with not as interesting a subject matter and compared to those two it does feel a tad bland. Snafuperman is very well-animated though with fluid character designs, detailed and not sparse backgrounds and lively colours/shadings. Carl Stalling always did write outstanding music for the many cartoons he scored for and Snafuperman is not an exception, the orchestration is very lush and the pacing is characteristically lively. The instructional parts of the cartoon may not as come across as effectively as it could have done but the humour still shines visually and verbally, the beginning is priceless and the dialogue is appropriately as sharp as a razor and delivered with zany zest by Mel Blanc(one of the most talented, versatile and consistent voice actors there ever was). Snafu is still endearing but is very funny in how inept he is at everything, which provides much of the laughs in his cartoons. All in all, amusing and pretty good but not one of the best Private Snafu cartoons in my humble opinion. 7/10 Bethany Cox
