I still consider Heidi Jetlag's best, but Curly: The Littlest Puppy is up there with the best of them like Magic Gift of the Snowman, Little Red Riding Hood, Black Beauty and Cinderella. While they are not perfect, I do think the Jetlag animations do deserve more attention, and not to be looked down upon as rip-offs. Sure some of them do have some corny dialogue and voice acting(but that is true of quite a few obscure animations I've seen of late actually) as well as some wanting animation quality, but I have always enjoyed the music, the stories sweet and meaningful and the characters on the most part likable. Curly: The Littlest Puppy has all three of those good things, and very, very little of the bad things. The animation is mostly not bad at all, a couple of the character designs are a little awkward but still better than the ones in Alice in Wonderland at any rate, but the backgrounds do have life and are clean in alternative to sparse and rushed and the colours have vibrancy. The music is wonderful, the score has a lot of whimsy, and the songs are ones with lovely melodies and good messaging. Close to Me was always my favourite, With You is also very catchy. The script is never too simplistic or childish, and the story is sweet without being saccharine and touching without being overly-sentimental. The characters are endearing, the titular character is simply adorable and definitely towards the top of the list of Jetlag's most relateable characters. The voice acting is good, not corny like Alice in Wonderland or A Christmas Carol, instead it is simple and dynamic while not being overly-cutesy or passive. In conclusion, one of Jetlag's best of a resume of charming and worthwhile if imperfect animations. 9.5/10 Bethany Cox
