Just As Great As Roger Rabbit, So Much So It Lives Up To It.
10 May 2011 | by (Hialeah, Florida) – See all my reviews

First of all, I remember seeing this show as part of the Disney Afternoon block and found every minute of every episode enjoyable. I also didn't know at the time I was watching it that this was originally intended to be a spin-off series starring Roger Rabbit. But the initial plan never came to be due to the copyright problems between Disney and Amblin, so Bonkers (who is a bobcat by the way, to the first reviewer who asked what he is supposed to be) was brought over from his own segments on Raw Toonage and was used to replace Roger and be the star instead. At the beginning of this series, Bonkers becomes unemployed due to his old show being dropped from first place in the ratings. But then, after an unanticipated turn of events, Bonkers finds himself inadvertently entangled in a case and is later asked to join the police force, which he agrees to do so.

This Disney 'toon has a definite Tex Avery/Bob Clamplett vibe to it and I think that must be the main reason why it's connected with a majority of viewers. Those who are familiar with the classic animated featurettes directed by them will find Bonkers reminiscent of their styles. This Disney 'toon is probably the one at its wackiest as well that's in the spirit of Looney Tunes and the like. Another thing I like about this show as among my favorite aspects (and why I'd recommend it to those who haven't already seen it) is the cameos made by various, established Disney characters like Donald Duck, Goofy Goof, Mickey Mouse, Mad Hatter, March Hare, the dormouse and many others I may have forgotten like Dumbo. I love it when a Disney project involves character cameos and/or walk-ons. Not only does Bonkers appear here additionally, but his co-stars Fawn Deer, Jitters A. Dog, Grumbles Grizzly, Roderick Lizzard and Tuttle Turtle do too. Although this show is supposed to be modeled after Roger Rabbit, it's technically, fully animated, rather than an actual mixture of animation and live-action. But Bonkers' first human partner, Lucky Piquel, is meant to be the more normal one, as are the other human characters, like his wife, Dyl, and daughter, Marilyn. Lucky also tries his best not to get as nutty as Bonkers is all while trying to do his duty. The series is split into two eras, with many episodes featuring Lucky and others featuring Bonkers' new partner, Miranda Wright (who he meets after Lucky and his family move to D.C., having obtained a promotion). Whoever Bonkers is partnered with, they go on cases that usually involved missing 'toons and' toon villains who are often behind the kidnappings. Albeit sometimes the general storyline detracted from those.

Despite what one nay-sayer or two on here wrote, I say this show should not be missed for at least the cameos it has and to best describe it and sum this up in my own words: It's just such a thrill of a joyride that will keep you at the edge of your seat as the hilarity ensues. And anyone not feeling this show in one way or another must lack a funny bone maybe.
