| Beautifully designed and engineered cartoon
Maybe the repeated line "Yob! Yob! Where's my Yob?" gets a little tiring and less funny eventually, that aside Rocket-Bye Baby is excellent. It looks great, the stylised look is coloured strikingly and drawn with a wacky elegance that is in keeping with the tone and Chuck Jones' style. The standout here was the facial expressions of the characters, beautifully done and often priceless. The music is energetic and characterful, more importantly it fits with what we see in the animation and goes even further in enhancing the fun factor. The writing is fresh and witty, but in a way that is natural in alternative to forced, and the gags are very imaginative and cleverly staged. The chase sequence and the one with the elderly lady's using a harmoniser to get her scream right were particularly well done. The characters are not iconic but work excellently in their own way, the father is the best character while the baby is cute without being in a sickly way. The mother doesn't get much to do though. The voice acting is wonderful, there's no Mel Blanc but Rocket-Bye Baby doesn't suffer from that seeing as Daws Butler and June Foray are just as talented as voice actors and do a wonderful job in their roles. To conclude, beautifully done and as a cartoon it's excellent. 9/10 Bethany Cox
