Very, very, very uneven...but still well worth seeing
21 January 2013 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

bizarre addition--a 1940s Superman cartoon latter portion--TV animations such as Levis and 7-11

While I only give this collection of animated films a 6, I still recommend you see it--which might not make much sense. Let me explain. The quality of independent animation in the 60s and 70s was very, very poor. Much of it might have been because the great studios had either shut down (think Looney Tunes and MGM) or gone dormant (think Disney). In its place you had lots and lots of Hannah-Barbera--with offerings like "Speed Buggy", "Huckleberry Hound", "Inch High, Private Eye" and the godawful "Bionic Stooges". And, given the appalling quality of these cartoons (see them yourself now that you've grown up and you'll see what I mean), it's surprising ANY decent animations were created at this time. Now I am not saying the films are all great--several are pretty bad. But a few, such as "French Windows" and "Closed Mondays" are still marvelous to watch. And, to get a decent overview of the times, it is worth seeing.

By the way, the collection, at times, seems rather randomly tossed together. Among all these films of the 70s is a Superman cartoon from 1941 (why???) and some animated TV ads for 7-Up and Levis. Odd....
