Storyline

Little Audrey, while fishing, falls to the bottom of the sea, where she encounters all types of sea-life and then is arrested by the local fish-constable. She is tried by a jury of sardines who find her guilty, and she is sentenced to the 'eelectric chair." She makes an escape attempt, and wakes up to find it has all been a dream. She has a nibble on her fishing line and reels in a small fish, which she quickly returns to the water. Written by Les Adams <longhorn1939@suddenlink.net>

Got to love those fish/sea puns and characters
25 January 2017 | by TheLittleSongbirdSee all my reviews

Along with 'Butterscotch and Soda' and 'Song of the Birds', 'The Seapreme Court' is one of my personal favourite Little Audrey cartoons.

There is very little to fault here, the slightness of the story pretty much being the weak link and the sole one. However, as is the case with many Little Audrey cartoons it has the right amount of confectionery sweetness without feeling too sugary or making one sick, and has a lot of charm. Loved the more than welcome return to the dream concept. This is the same for Little Audrey herself, an adorable and charming character that falls on the right side of sweet thankfully and not only learns from her mistake here but things are put right right at the world with a well delivered message.

Furthermore, the animation is rich and colourful, with very meticulous and beautifully drawn backgrounds and well-rendered character designs that don't look too stiff. Winston Sharples provides yet another outstanding music score, even in mediocre or worse cartoons Sharples' music was never among the flaws (if anything always one of the strengths or the best asset).

Also love the lusciousness of the orchestration here and how characterful and whimsical the music was without going overboard in either, even better was how well it fitted in the cartoon and how it merged with the action. The main song is very infectious too.

Plenty of amusement and beautifully timed gags here, as well as some great visual imagination. The fish court world is very imaginatively rendered, and sees some very colourful fish characters, a surprising amount of tension and some very funny writing and ideas with some deliciously loony fish and sea dialogue and puns.

There were some nice ideas that will delight children and also hold interest for adults as long as not too much is demanded, like Little Audrey's imposed sentence. Everything here has the right amount of sweetness without being too sugary or making one queasy with sickness.

Voice acting is good.

Overall, great Little Audrey cartoon. 9/10 Bethany Cox
