One of my favourites
30 December 2010 | by See all my reviews

I like Rupert the Bear, he isn't my favourite animated character but he is very likable and charming like his adventures. Rupert and the Frog Song was a big childhood favourite, and I am not afraid to admit I have a big spot for it now. The animation is very colourful and beautiful, and I also loved that in some parts of the cartoon it was dark and mysterious as well. The music is wonderful too, not just the incidental music which is full of charm, atmosphere and magic but also the song We All Stand Together, which is very spirit-raising and by far my favourite asset of Rupert and the Frog Song. The story is memorable and brimmed with likability and charm, the writing is funny and sharp, the pace is just right and the characters- not just Rupert but the cute frogs- are engaging. The voice acting is also spot-on, so overall, this childhood favourite is still a winner. 10/10 Bethany Cox
