A Cute Little Toon
19 January 2004 | by travisimoSee all my reviews

The Cobweb Hotel is a cute little cartoon but it doesn't really stand out much. A huge part of the cartoon revolves around a song of the same name that is cute too but not all that memorable. Although I will say that The Cobweb Hotel benefits from the fly newlyweds that are the heroes of the picture. They're kind of fun and have their own personalities, particularly the husband who's a `flyweight champion.' I especially liked his fighting stance every time he felt he or his girl were in danger. It kind of reminded me of Donald Duck whenever he gets mad and is ready to fight. Overall, this is not too shabby of a cartoon.

My IMDb Rating: 6/10
