I'm glad I'm the first reviewer
7 December 2016 | by jonathan_k80See all my reviews

That's so I can warn everyone to avoid this horrible series of cartoons from DePatie-Freleng Enterprises (DFE).

Stale jokes, predictable plot lines, cheap animation and, worst of all, humor based on ethnic stereotypes. There's nothing funny about this first entry in a series featuring two dimwitted Mexican toads. Absolutely nothing. And to think they made seventeen of these sleep- inducing pieces of garbage.

It isn't even an original concept. The two toads are carbon copies of the two cats from "Mexicali Shmoes," a 1959 Looney Tunes short directed by Friz Freleng. It appears Freleng thought he could rehash the same idea when he and David DePatie established their own studio. This time it didn't work.

It's one of those mysteries of the universe how these cartoons ever got released in the first place. They are an embarrassment to the studio that produced them. Something to avoid for sure.
