Dated, but in a good, nostalgic way!
15 May 2012 | by speedolitecSee all my reviews

The first episode of this brilliant, classic series, it certainly seems very tame compared to most of the episodes that would show up in subsequent seasons, and the difference in the quality of animation is more noticeable than in every other episode since, I think it's still very enjoyable. I've lost count how many times I've seen it over the years, but any time that this is the episode that airs, I'll still watch it. I guess it's mostly because even though I've basically memorized every line by now, I'm kinda nostalgic thinking of the first time I saw it back in the day. I actually also enjoy the crudeness of the construction paper animation, with the shadows behind the characters, no matter how far away the background was supposed to be! If there are still people out there who haven't seen this show yet, I'd say check this one out first, if for no other reason than to get a fresh look at it from how it basically started (there are a couple very crudely drawn animated shorts that were done before, but I think those are mostly appreciated by the more hard core fans).
