| Hilarious and a great cartoon in its own right
One of the best and funniest cartoons seen recently. The animation is nicely stylised and fluid with expressive colours and well drawn backgrounds. Not quite as refined as other cartoons seen with somewhat of the TV animation look at times with the character designs, but it never becomes distractingly bad. The music is energetic and characterful, adding so much to the action as well as sounding great. Always one of the best things about a Warner Bros cartoon and not a disappointment at all in this regard in Dough Ray Me-Ow. The story is crisply paced and amusing though with Louie's attempts to kill Heathcliff deliciously dark. While the writing is fresh and witty, the banter between the two characters is a joy to hear and highlighted by the brilliant one-man show vocals of Mel Blanc, and the gags are hilarious to the point you're in hysterics while watching and after(the cracking nuts, dynamite, birth certificate and ending fare the best). Louie and especially Heathcliff carry the cartoon wonderfully and while an unlikely pairing are vastly entertaining in chemistry, they are not the best characters but are underrated ones that deserved to be much more than one-shot. Their personalities range from almost sadistic to very stupid, but the writing helps them to be endearing in their own right. To conclude, a truly great cartoon and has great entertainment value, one of the better and funnier cartoons seen personally in about a month or so. 10/10 Bethany Cox
