| 'Cinderella' at its funniest, sexiest and most imaginative
Love animation, it was a big part of my life as a child, particularly Disney, Looney Tunes and Tom and Jerry, and still love it whether it's film, television or cartoons.

Also have much admiration for Tex Avery, an animation genius whose best cartoons are animated masterpieces and some of the best he ever did. It was truly wonderful and fascinating to see Avery put his own unique spin on one of my favourite fairy-tales and 'Swing Shift Cinderella' has as of now become one of his best cartoons (coming from a director who had so many very good and more cartoons, have yet to see a "bad" one) and one of my favourites in general. 'Cinderella' has never been funnier, sexier or more imaginative, and only Avery can achieve something like that.

The characters are an absolute delight. The wolf and the fairy godmother are a riotous duo and work so wonderfully together, and there has never been a hotter Cinderella. The voice work all round is a tour-De-force.

Can't say anything bad about Avery's direction. He does a wonderful job directing, with his unique, unlike-any-other visual and characteristic and incredibly distinctive wacky humour style all over it as can be expected.

Once again there is nothing sadistic or repetitious, instead it's imaginative, wonderfully wild, deliciously deranged, violent but imaginatively so and hilarious throughout from start to finish. The sight gags throughout are an absolute joy and are immaculate in timing, not a misfire in the bunch, nothing too tame and it retains the quintessential magic of the original story. The in-jokes are witty and inspired, and the topical issues are insightful and done in an entertaining way.

It is no surprise either that the animation is superb, being rich in colour and detail. The character designs are unique, Avery always did have creative character designs, and suitably fluid. The music, courtesy of Scott Bradley, is lushly and cleverly orchestrated, with lively and energetic rhythms and fits very well indeed.

Overall, simply amazing and one of my favourites. 10/10 Bethany Cox
