Beans Deserves Another Chance
19 October 2011 | by roocadillac85See all my reviews

There are two things that make a cartoon character: cuteness and funniness. The characters in this film (Beans, and Ham & Ex) possessed considerable measures in both categories. It's so hard to believe why those three have such a short run in the Looney Tunes series. When some critics give their take on why this is, chances are they'll say it has something to do with personality. I just wonder how some people define the word "personality"? Well, whatever the meaning is, the three aforementioned characters are still worth featuring.

For some reason, WB retired them in favor of Porky. True, his stuttering speech is funny. But at the same time it could be quite a drag in trying to understand what his trying to say. This guy maybe quite hilarious. But when it comes to cuteness, he probably doesn't come close.

The Phantom Ship is an entertaining film. It does feature sufficient thrill and humor.
