The best of the characters created in the 1960s.
31 August 2003 | by Robert ReynoldsSee all my reviews

For a brief period, Warner Brothers got out of short animation in the early 1960s, closing the animation department in 1963, only to turn around roughly a year later and contract with Depatie-Freleng to produce more shorts at bargain-basement rates (the low budgets showed all too often. For a couple of years, they basically churned out Speedy cartoons and Coyote versus Roadrunner. Apparently, they realized man could not live on Speedy and Roadrunner alone (Lord knows, they tried) and they created some other characters, Cool Cat among them. Of the new characters, the ones for Cool Cat were probably the best conceived and effectively developed, mostly because of the voice work by Larry Storch. The shorts didn't always work, but Storch always made the best of it, often with some cheesy dialogue. The first is one of the better ones. Worth watching at least once. Recommended with above caveats, especially for Larry Storch fans.
