Silly and sentimental mood piece
28 August 2004 | by MephitisLotorSee all my reviews

There's no story to speak of in "The Dingles", which is about Doris Dingle and her three cats, Donna, Dale, and Deedee, and the time they had to retreat from the backyard into the house in the face of a ferocious storm. Emma Levine's narration is entirely fitting for what amounts to a tall tale, complete with colorful descriptions and impossible events; the three cats are given clear (and very feline) personalities, and the animation, while very old-fashioned, is well-done, and features some good gags and acting. People looking for innovative or raucous animation will be disappointed; "The Dingles" is nothing more than a sentimental crowd-pleaser, and it does its job quite well.
