The cartoon is nice entertaining, but the 3d effects don't quite work
23 June 2010 | by TheLittleSongbirdSee all my reviews

As an avid fan of Looney Tunes, I looked forward to seeing Lumber Jack-Rabbit. It was nice and entertaining, but some aspects disappointed too. So what disappointed? Well the pacing isn't as secure as it normally is, while the cartoon is I feel too short at 6 minutes. But the let down were some of the 3d effects. Some of them work nicely such as the dog and the horizon but others are distracting and as a consequence fall flat.

However, the animation itself, the characters and backgrounds are crisp, colourful and lively, and the music is energetic and fun. There is also the typical Looney Tunes wit and irreverence that make these cartoons so enjoyable, evident in the witty dialogue and smart sight gags. Bugs has been better but he is good, while the dog Smidgen is a good foil. And as always Mel Blanc is stellar with the vocals. Overall, not the best of the lot by a mile, but definitely worth watching. 7/10 Bethany Cox
