Urban where Disney is pastoral. However, by the 1940s Fleischer Studios feels as backwardly looking as Disney Productions of the same period - though to the 1920s rather than the 1820s. Misses the manic derangements of the vintage Betty Boop or Koko, which is what gave those shorts such zip. Nothing transforms here, save in a remarkable sequence in which Hoppity is electrocuted. Honey is typically winsome though!
