History time with Little Lulu
16 February 2017 | by See all my reviews

The 26 Little Lulu cartoons made during 1944-1948 (and the two made in the early 60s) were uneven (individually and the series as a general overview) but watchable.

While there are, previous to 'Bored of Education', some good or more Little Lulu cartoons such as 'Hullaba-Lulu', 'Magica-Lulu' and 'Beau Ties', there are also mediocre or less ones such as 'Lulu Gets a Birdie', 'Lulu at the Zoo' and 'Lulu's Birthday Party' (two of those three having the character of Mandy as one of the main problems). 'Bored of Education' is for me one of the best Little Lulu cartoons.

Despite the slight story (over half of it is the historical dream sequence), 'Bored of Education' is just so much fun and pokes gentle and hilarious fun at history. Dream sequences are pretty over-used in cartoons, and when done in a way that's overlong or dull comes over as a clichéd plot device. However, 'Bored of Education's' dream sequence is full of imaginative and hilarious material, verbal and physical (such as the native Indians and fountain of youth gags) and enhances the cartoon.

Not that the classroom stuff isn't any funnier. It isn't as imaginative but Little Lulu has one or two juicy lines (especially her comment on Ben Franklin, was having a drink at the time of watching and actually nearly spat it out laughing upon hearing that line) and her chemistry with Tubby throughout the cartoon is wonderful. The classroom moments also provide a good look as to how teachers punished the pupils, like it or not it did happen then.

As to be expected, the animation is nice. The style of it may take some getting used to but when you compare this cartoon to Little Lulu's debut 'Eggs Don't Bounce' the difference is staggering, here the drawing is more refined and the colours more vibrant. Winston Sharples' music score is whimsical, beautifully orchestrated and characterful as always. The main song is infectious.

Little Lulu and Tubby are engaging characters with great chemistry. The teacher is suitably stern. The voice acting is solid from Famous Studios regulars Cecil Roy (one of the voices of Casper the Friendly Ghost) and Arnold Stang (voice of Herman in the Herman and Katnip cartoons).

Overall, great Little Lulu cartoon and one of her best. 9/10 Bethany Cox
