Reviews and Comments

From TibbyH :

Roland and Rattfink gets pretty boring the more it went on. The timing felt off, the drawings got worse, and something about the writing felt exhausted and tired. Yet, with all this being said, I really enjoy Roland and Rattfink....all of it. The main characters are fun, there's a sense of disdain for the Hollywood system, and every sense of child-friendly good will established in the industry was lovingly destroyed (though not nearly on the level as what Tex Avery did). This entry is one of my favorites in the series due to it's satire of Canadian film stereotypes, actual well written jokes, and fun corny music by Doug Goodwin. If you must watch one R&R cartoon, at least let it be this one.
