Bootsy as toon
ingemar-4 from Sweden
3 August 2008
There is one reason to see this cartoon, and that is to see Bootsy
Collins essentially playing himself as a toon. His character is perfect
for a toon to begin with, colorful, high-pitched voice, all you need
for a bad toon, the perfect "loonatic". I think they would be better
off making an entire cartoon series with Bootsy instead of re-fitting
old characters like Daffy.
The story is not much to speak of (cheesy crime-fighting hero team on
endless missions, super-powers, boring fights... bah) and the music is
disappointing. Bootsy/Bootes says "I want you all to be fonk'in baby"
but I don't hear any funk, neither rhythm or tune. ("Get up for the
down stroke" would have fit perfectly.) But his voice is as weird as
ever and when Bootsy shoots missiles with the bass guitar, it is very
much in-character. He carries the show and the only thing that is
amusing except his voicing and character is Daffy/Danger Duck.
How about making a "Bootzilla" cartoon? But please, give it a stronger
soundtrack with heavy funk, and a story that hasn't been reused as
