Critics reviews

It’s hard to pinpoint exactly why it failed to achieve [a status similar to Disney’s Snow White and Pinocchio], though the watered-down style may have had something to do with it. That’s not to say it’s bad, per se, just that it’s markedly different from the animated shorts for which the Fleischers were best known. Regardless, it’s worthy of examination as an artifact of neglected film history, and the 35mm IB Technicolor print will be a real treat.
