Reviews and Comments

From TibbyH :

A groovy short made by the hottest cats in town. In one of Friz Freleng's last directed animated shorts, "The Ant and the Aardvark" is a tightly written, humorously performed, and gorgeously simplistic cartoon. Sure, like most DFE shorts, it's reminiscent of Warner Bros cartoons and can be a bit hit and miss in terms of comedy. However, look at this in terms of its own merits and you'll have a grand ol' time.
