Chilly Willy and Wally Walrus together
2 August 2017 | by TheLittleSongbirdSee all my reviews

Chilly Willy's best cartoons were perfect examples of how a potentially one-joke character and concept could end up actually being a perfect mix of the cute and the funny with a lot of colour and good comic timing to go with it.

Notable for the first appearance in a Chilly Willy cartoon of Wally Walrus, better known as one of Woody Woodpecker's opponents, 'Clash and Carry' is one of the stronger Chilly Willy cartoons of the 60s. That it is directed by Jack Hannah may have something to do with it, and Hannah does wonders with the limited budgets and time constraints. Wally is a great opponent for Chilly, and unlike other cartoons not featuring Smedley one does not miss Smedley too much. Wally brings everything to 'Clash and Carry' to what worked so well with him and Woody Woodpecker.

Even if minimal and limited budget-wise, the animation is bright, colourful and has more detail and imagination than most of the Chilly Willy cartoons from this period. The music is full of lively bounce and character, with luscious orchestration. It not only adds to the action and visuals but enhances them too.

Every single one of the gags do amuse and beautifully timed. The chemistry between Chilly and Wally sparkles, and it is always remarkable at what Chilly has up his sleeve and how he does it. Underneath all that irresistible cuteness he is one clever, funny and at times fairly brutal penguin.

Chilly is adorable and is also a lot of fun, with his actions speaking far louder than words, even having gestures, movements and actions reminiscent of Charlie Chaplin. He may be a nuisance to his opponents but he wins the viewer over with his cuteness and timing.

Paul Frees provides some characteristically solid voice work for Wally.

In conclusion, great and a lot better than a lot of Chilly Willy cartoons that followed. 9/10 Bethany Cox
