Worth seeing for Pogo and Chuck Jones fans
27 January 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This came out when I was seven but I only just saw it recently (on YouTube). It had been out on VHS but is not yet on DVD. I enjoyed seeing Kelly's characters come to life via the animation directed by Chuck Jones and Ben Washam; as for the voices, Jones himself is Bun Rab and Porky Pine and Kelly winds up doing P.T. Bridgeport, a song-and-dance-bear at the start--with June Foray just perfect as Pogo and Mlle. Hepzibah. The characters are cute and the backgrounds attractive (I feel like moving there to be with the critters!)

It's too bad more wasn't done with Pogo in animation (I have yet to see the 1980 "I Go Pogo" claymation effort).
