Love animation to bits. It was a big part of my life as a child, especially Disney, Looney Tunes, Hanna Barbera and Tom and Jerry, and still love it as a young adult, whether it's film, television or cartoons. Actually appreciate it even more now, having more knowledge of the different animation styles and directors and what work went into them.

Am most familiar with the 'Mickey Mouse Works' cartoons from them featuring on 'House of Mouse', a show still held a fondness for by me. With the colours and sound effects, that 'Mickey Mouse Works' makes a real effort to retain the spirit of the old/classic/golden age Disney cartoons is to be lauded. The characters' original personalities are admirably stuck true to as well, particularly Goofy and Donald, while also expanding those for a few, Mickey being more interesting here than before. The hyperactive energy present here is one of few things that is different.

'Mickey's Mix Up' is a cartoon held with fondness by me. Not just because Mickey is amusing here at times but he'd do anything to not hurt Minnie even if he resorts to drastic measures by the skin of his teeth. Pete and Mortimer are tremendously fun support, Pete providing a good antagonist and Mortimer being purposefully but amusingly obnoxious. Chief O'Hara (a parody of the character of the same name in the 1960s 'Batman' show?) is as usual a bumbling dimwit and one may argue a stereotype but he's a fun one. Minnie is appealing, but the highlight for me was the priceless ending.

Donald is once again in a scenario perfect for his temperament in 'Whitewater Donald'. One can identify with him too in a cartoon that is charming and funny and Daisy isn't too annoying, though she is a little at times when she gets a little pushy, like she can be in the 'Mickey Mouse Works' cartoons.

Anybody who likes Mickey and Mortimer together will like a lot 'Mickey's Christmas Chaos'. The two work so well together, there are some very funny gags, a lively pace and the festive spirit is there. It doesn't come over as too mean-spirited, apart from perhaps the ending.

While not surprising in outcome, the stories are lively and engaging, kept afloat by the character interaction, characters and the atmosphere.

The writing is clever and very funny, even with the deliberately corny moment and pun which made me grin rather than groan.

Really enjoy the spontaneous flow of the episode and Donald's spotlight stealing/accident with the blimp is very funny indeed, one of his funniest.

Furthermore, the animation is very colourful, smooth in movement and with some meticulous detail. The music is suitably groovy, jaunty and cleverly used.

Voice acting is very good with some of the best voice actors in the business involved. Wayne Allwine, Bill Farmer and Tony Anselmo are more than worthy successors to Walt Disney/James MacDonald, Pinto Colvig and Clarence "Ducky" Nash. Jim Cummings is great fun as Pete as is Maurice LaMarche's Mortimer.

Overall, a lot to enjoy. 8/10 Bethany Cox
