A simple plot and a funny cartoon.
21 December 2003 | by rapt0r_claw-1See all my reviews

The Eager Beaver (1946) is a funny 40's cartoon, and Jones's unique style is just beginning to surface.

The use of music is excellent, as the beavers construct the dam with perfect synchronization. A good "Hard at Work" theme.

Dialog is minimal besides the narration, but I like it. It has some clever lines, like when the narrator tells the beavers to dam the river. And the annoying beaver who supervises the construction is just a set-up for the ending.

The plot is simple, but I like the story it tells. The weird tree-felling methods of those beavers never cease to amaze me. The Eager Beaver's attempts at cutting down some trees are good.

The animation is excellent, but typical of the day. It's pre-1948, so it's not exactly like what we're accustomed to.

Overall, just a funny cartoon, with some good jokes and good artistry. It entertains, which is all it needs to do.
