Days, of Saturday Morning Cartoons!
Perhaps I JUST have an afinity for monsters, but I found the MILTON cartoons to be far and away the best segment of the MTMS collection.
It was interesting to see vintage'60s TV animation where the cells were still hand inked and NOT transfered to cells with a Xerox process, which shortly would become the norm for TV animation. I was also pleased to see just how much original ANIMATION was done for each episode. Limited TV-style Animation, of course, but compared to what the MASTERS of LIMITED ANIMATION at FILMATION would be passing off in the coming years, MILTON looks more like theatrical cartoon quality in comparison. In addition, I found the background art, if at times, somewhat simplistic, to be very well executed and stylish. The shows are beautifully restored and of excellent visual quality.
Unfortunatly, on the downside most of the OTHER segements that were part of the MTMS, Fearless Fly, Stuffy Durma, Muggy Doo, Flukey Luke, Penny Penguin, etc. were much more formulaic and derivitive.Read more ›
Watch three or four a day and relive your childhood in stages. I still am.
Fearless Fly is an imaginative supporting feature in which timid Hiram, putting on his special glasses, becomes a superhero crime- fighter. The other supporting feature rotated between Muggy-Doo, Boy Fox; Stuffy Durma, a millionaire who longs to return to his hobo lifestyle; Penny Penguin; and cowboy Flukey Luke, with his Irish-Indian assistant. Eventually this third segment was replaced by a second Milton cartoon.
By the mid '60s, there had been a handful of truly amazing, unique cartoon shows, from Rocky and Bullwinkle to Beany and Cecil and Underdog, not to mention Hanna-Barbera's numerous hits, including Huckleberry Hound, Quick Draw McGraw, and Magilla Gorilla. But throw your mind back to 1965, and you'll see why audiences were riveted on Milton. The Addams Family and The Munsters were already making a sort of light-hearted gallows humor the biggest hit of the day; "limited" TV animation had managed to captivate kids with unforgettable characters and imaginative scripts. But the writing on Milton, and the one-liners, especially on "Fearless Fly" take it to a whole new level.Read more ›
