...Favourite Looney Tunes cartoon to date! Before I watched "Another Froggy Evening", my favourite WB cartoon was "Yankee Doodle Daffy" and now it is this! This is definitely not a pointless remake and one worth watching (although its original, "One Froggy Evening" should be watched as well, it is also a very good cartoon). It is cheerful, has good songs and a good singer in it, good surprises, an amusing and original (ok, not totally original) plot-line and theme and to top it all - a longish unexpected cameo appearance of...

Here are the things I like about the original cartoon which are not in/changed in the remake:
1. I prefer Michigan's animation in this version to the other version. 2. I thought the man with Michigan in this cartoon was better than all of the men in "Another Froggy Evening". 3. There was very little slapstick in this cartoon, as in the remake there is quite a lot.
Here are the things which I like about this cartoon which are not in/different in the original:
1. I love the surprises in the remake. 2. I love the historical settings, which create excitement for me. 3. Unlike in this cartoon, there is a cameo appearance in the remake (which I include as one of the surprises), which is delightful.
I recommend this cartoon to people who like different, cheery and slightly history-orientated Looney Tunes cartoons. Enjoy "Another Froggy Evening"! :-)
9 and a half out of ten.
***SPOILERS HERE*** ***SPOILERS HERE*** The surprise appearance is Marvin the Martian! I do not think anyone will expect this character to appear unless they had been told, I certainly did not! It was very exciting to see Marvin, especially as he is one of my favourite Looney Tunes characters.
***SPOILERS OVER*** ***SPOILERS OVER***
