A Minor Contributor To The Death Of Saturday Morning!!
27 December 2005 | by (Atlanta, Gee-oh-ja) – See all my reviews

Q*Bert was one of a seemingly endless spew of cartoons specifically designed to draw kids down to the local video game arcade and bleed them dry of all of their allowance. Or their Granpa's rare quarter collection. In the game, a long nosed orange Pac Man / Muppet mutation struggles to uniform the colors of a series of blocks on a pyramid while avoiding snakes, pygmies and trolls. This premise, like all of the games of the early eighties, doesn't offer a whole lot to a cartoon studio to work with, but that didn't stop whoever pumped this out from trying!

So what we have is a redesigned Q*Bert - now with arms - in what amounts to some kind of bizarre homage to American Graffiti. No, I'm not kidding. Q*Bert, his débutante girl-thing, and the rest of his pals are the clean cut 'good kids', just trying to get by and have fun. But the Snake (SSSpike?) is a crusty greaser type and he and the rest of his gang of baddies like giving Q and his pals thrills at the end of a shining switch-blade!! Okay, not exactly, but you get the idea. Somehow the studio (who apparently decline to take responsibility) work in the whole color changing premise, but gimme a break! It's amazing I remember as much as I do!!! Maybe now I can forget.

In its favor, the actual animation WAS a cut above the vast majority of the crap on at that time.
