Quite enjoyable
19 December 2011 | by TheLittleSongbirdSee all my reviews

Popeye and Son was a show I actually found rather enjoyable. I don't think it is as good as the original cartoons, which are classics, but I wasn't expecting it to be. The animation is not bad I feel, one or two character designs are not as strong as others perhaps, but overall the colours are not too flat and the backgrounds at least have life to them.

The music is also memorable, especially the theme tune. Likewise with the amusing writing, clever story-lines and the wonderful characters(apart from Swee'Pea all the original characters are here and every bit as fun as before). The voice acting is solid with Maurice LeMarche and Allan Melvin the notable standouts.

Overall, enjoyable series. 8/10 Bethany Cox
