  • The first episode was okay, but the latter grossed me out.

    7.1
    Lil Orphan Happy: On Mother's Day, Happy misses his long-lost mother. So Bessie, Ben, and Happy go look for her, but they have no stroke of luck. They soon enough come upon Rose, who has the same birthmark as Happy's mother. But Rose soon enough becomes an annoyance to Bessie. I liked this episode at first, but then I started hating it at the end. Rose makes Happy do bad things and she has a plan to steal meat, Rose soon enough ends up wettened by a bucket of water and turns out to be an imposter. At the end, Bessie says Happy does have a mother when the family has a hug. What disappoints me is that we never got to see Happy's mother, and that line was 100% cheap.

    GRADE: C+



    Body Rockers: I vomited from the crude potty humor, as well as the crude humor for the rest of the body. I can't finish my review since this episode was so disgusting!

    GRADE: F



    FINAL GRADE: C



    P.S. Writers, don't use potty humor or cheap lines ever again on the show.moreless
  • Two below-average cartoons, and the latter descends into potty humor.

    I didn't care for either episode- in Little Orphan Happy, its Mothers Day, and Happy is uh-not happy- because he misses his mom. Bessie, being Bessie, decides to search all of San Francisco for Mom. This episode starts out good, but once they find "Mom" the plot just kinda dies. Body Rockers started out very funny, with the Bee Scouts taking a trip to the Discovetorium. I liked the hippie tour guide, the "film of the future" that dated from the Lyndon B. Johnson Presidency, and the idea that Bessie and Penny think they've been shrunk and swallowed inside a human body, ala "Fantastic Voyage". Then Bessie starts to mention all the various ways they can exit the human body- she starts with the head, and then as she begins to get lower, Penny begs her not to stop. But they don't, unfortunately, and the result is one of the most blatant poop jokes I've ever seen. I'm not a fan of body function humor in cartoons, and this one was the ultimate. Too bad, because it ruined a fun beginning.moreless

  • NOTES (3)

  • ALLUSIONS (2)

    • Dogs Playing Poker: When they are the dog prison, a group of dogs are playing poker. The scene is taken off of C. M. Coolidge's series of paintings of dogs playing poker. Specifically it is referencing the work entitled "A Friend in Need", as it shows a dog passing an ace under the table to another dog.

    • Title: "Little Orphan Happy" is a take on the comic strip, Little Orphan Annie.
