A good animated version of a classic story
28 August 2012 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Coming from somebody who mostly enjoyed the Burbank Animation Studios animations, I did enjoy the animated version of The Canterville Ghost. It is not as good as Bubank's versions of The Count of Monte Cristo(their best), White Fang(their best looking), Hansel and Gretel and Hans and the Silver Skates but is infinitely better than D4: The Trojan Dog(their worst), Hercules, Anna and the King and The Little Drummer Boy. The biggest flaw was with the voice acting. A lot of it especially that of the little dog is very cheesy. Some of the character designs also come across as on the crude side, and it does feel a little rushed towards the end. However, most of the animation quality is quite good, colourful with some nice backgrounds. The music is rousing without interfering with the basic tone of the story, while the story itself is haunting and charming and The Canterville Ghost contains some of the better dialogue of Burbank Animation Studios' animations being witty and sweet without it being overdone or cloying. The characters are mostly engaging, especially the titular character. Overall, I found this animated version to be good if not great. 7/10 Bethany Cox
