Sports Cartoons: How do I love thee? Let me count the ways....
24 July 2004 | by See all my reviews

I remember watching Sports Cartoons when I was a kid, renting it nearly every Saturday much to the dismay of my grandpa who would plea with me to pick something else.

Sports Cartoons parodied nearly any sport you can think of, from tennis to karate to hot air balloon navigation (if you call it a sport). The stories often had little morals like don't cheat and junk like that, but they were simplistic and just meant for a few laughs to entertain kids. There was no dialogue, just short sequences of sporting events among the selected animal characters. Often, there was the idyllic hippo who basically enjoyed everything around him. He wasn't stupid, just pleasant and often the target of pranks by the little twin blue cats who often tried to get the hippo angry, to no avail, and using getting their comeuppance in the end. There was the smart dog who I can only remember from the hot air balloon and tennis sequences, and the little wart hog looking thing (it may've been a pig...I don't remember any horns) who usually had some trouble with the sports and, too, was the target of the twin cats.

I remember one tennis sequence where the cats were playing double against the hippo and the dog. The dog ran all over the court to swing at the ball while the hippo stood off to the side admiring a fluttering butterfly (even yawning so hard at one point that he caught the butterfly in his mouth). The cats, angered that the hippo never did anything and was having such a swell time just looking at this butterfly floating around, that they tried to swing away his object of interest with their tennis rackets. In the end though, the hippo, angered that the cats would swing their rackets at the butterfly, finally (and I think the only time in the whole movie he gets angry) huffs and puffs and swings back at the cats. As usual, their crass attempts to annoy someone backfired.

There were a lot of funny cartoons and 'Sports Cartoons' is one that I will always remember and always love, no matter how old I get. Unfortunately, it looks like very few people are aware of it (I notice only one review as I write this) and it is so hard to get a hold of, if at all. It's really a nice children's cartoon. Vive Sports Cartoons!
