User Reviews

 
Very funny, if only the animation was better...
9 June 2010 | by TheLittleSongbirdSee all my reviews

Purr-Chance to Dream was decent, if nothing more than that. Starting with the good things, the visual gags are very funny, clever and well-timed. The music is suitably rousing and bouncy, while the characters are still their likable selves and the pacing is just right not too fast not too slow. However, a major downfall I am sorry to say was in the animation, I actually didn't think it was that great, it was somewhat cheap and lifeless and Tom looks odd here. Also the story is predictable and a little episodic too. Still this cartoon is not as bad as a cartoon like Switchin' Kitten and Carmen Get It!, the former of which was an absolute disgrace I felt. Overall, disappointing but funny and worth seeing if you can get past the cheap animation. 7/10 Bethany Cox
