Cartoon Comments:

Frankenstein 6 out of 5 stars

Reviewed by: expo66, February 05, 2002

Ferociously intense Magoo tale that is pure suspense and horror and not a light moment in the entire piece. An original and brutal take on the Shelley novel that is a brilliantly compact 23 minutes (not 15 as mentioned in description in that all the half-hour slots were 23 min. of cartoon). The finale where Magoo must commit suicide in order to save the world of an onslaught of Frankenstein clones is scorching and no wonder 1964 family audiences shied away from this! the Frankenstein voice is a terrifying bass and the whole enterprise is laced with genius. Screaming....SCREAMING!!! To be rediscovered! HELP!
