The Lemming likes the old Fleischer cartoons - but not their habit of applying superfluous, nasal, running dialog to the soundtrack. The Lemming acknowledges that it's a creative decision: to have the characters chat back and forth - or to each other - in a casual manner. In its own way it's a sort of slice-of-life style. And may have been entertaining in the late '30s.

That's the down side.

On the up side, the Lemming enjoys the Fleischer technique of mixing three-dimensional settings with two-dimensional animated drawings. Your experience may vary.

The music? The Lemming likes it - although it took a little effort to get it out of the Lemming's brain, after viewing. It's 'catchy.'
