After introducing the small town Bugtown, inhabitated by bugs, this short shows what happens to two honeymooning lovebugs at the Honeymoon Hotel in town, due to the fact, that their love is a little bit to hot.Written by

Love animation, it was a big part of my life as a child, particularly Disney, Looney Tunes, Hanna Barbera, Studio Ghibli and Tom and Jerry, and still love it whether it's film, television or cartoons. With significantly broader knowledge of different directors, animation styles and studios, actually appreciate and love it even more now.
'Honeymoon Hotel' may not one of my favourite cartoons or an amazing one, there are funnier, more inventive and livelier cartoons about. Not that 'Honeymoon Hotel' is devoid of any of those things, just that other cartoons do it better. It is a lot of fun still and is very charming with a lot to like. Deserving to be more widely known, having come from a period with stiff and more well known competition from major pioneers in animation.
It is very flimsy in story sure and is fairly familiar, it is not hard to figure out how the cartoon was going to end.
Did feel that the cartoon was slightly too long as well.
On the other hand, the animation is great. Full of beautiful vibrant colour, meticulously detailed backgrounds, smooth movement and crisply drawn character designs, one is convincingly immersed in the bugtown world. The music is lush and full of energy, with an infectious song. The choreography in how it synchronises with the music and animated dazzles and amazes in its surprisingly grand spectacle.
Much of 'Honeymoon Hotel' is amusing, with some wit, and despite the bug characters it never tries too hard to be cute. The charm factor is high and while the bug characters are not the most distinctive they are appealing all the same.
All in all, charming and enjoyable. 8/10 Bethany Cox
