Pretty dull stuff.
8 February 2017 | by MartinHaferSee all my reviews

Ub Iwerks left the Disney Studio and started up his own cartoons in 1930. Here he was free to do what he wanted AND get credit for it. Unfortunately, his films were consistently out-performed by Disney's and due to very uneven writing Iwerks was forced to stop production in 1936.

Unfortunately for Iwerks, his first character he created post-Disney was Flip the Frog...a rather unremarkable guy with little in the way of charisma. Often he's just involved in some cutesy adventure--such as in this one. It's clever, it's cute, it's well drawn...and it's also pretty dull. Even when the evil pelican comes this isn't enough to breath energy into this flat cartoon. For a much better Flip cartoon, try "The Music Lesson".
