From Ted :

One of my favorite "anthropomorphic machine" cartoons. Not only do you have the wonderful narration by Sterling Holloway, but the uncredited Stan Freberg provides 5 or 6 character voices (including Susie's drunken hiccups!)

From Ryan :

I do not care too much for this cartoon as I find it to be rather boring. The background art is nicely done though. This short is said to be in the public domain, but I have read that it isn't and that it is one some of those PD tapes illegally.

From Fausto Flores :

I think this short reflects the real life and tell us that no matter the time, age or problems we face, it's important to keep a youthful spirit to "keep in shape" and "keep running".

From Nikki K. :

I give it a 10. I watched it all the time when I was little. I love that little blue coupe!

From JJ :

10! This is the best cartoon of all time! I used to watch this all the time when I was younger! I miss those days.

From Jeff :

This is one of my FAVORITE animated shorts! It makes me smile as much today as it did when I first saw it as a child. It is a great example of how life goes through cycles.

From Baruch Weiss :

I didn't enjoy this short too much as I found it boring as well, but I did of course like the music. Particularly during the title presentation. It kind of sounded like Chip 'N' Dales theme. I also enjoyed the part where the traffic light screams STOOOOOOP! This cartoon can be seen as a bonus feature on the DVD The Adventures of Ichabod and Mr. Toad, but you have to play a trivia game in order to see it.
