Reviews and Comments

From PopKorn Kat :

Up until I examined this cartoon more closely, Angel Puss was my least favorite Looney Tune of the "beloved" era. While this cartoon does tackle the leaders of the Axis, it more often than not just attacks the people of Japan just because the country supports the Axis. While one could argue that the remaining WWII cartoons (Snafu, et al) were racist (and some of them genuinely were), at least they had the audacity to confront the leaders and not just an entire nation which may not have even supported the abhorrent actions. Furthermore, the jokes, more often than not, simply aren't funny, generally resorting to bad puns.
