Well, the consensus so far seems to be, 'I'll give this 1.5, but look it up only if you're a CB fan'. Well it was on TV locally: I recorded it and watched it thre times. So here is a review from a non CB fan. I think it deserves equal air-time. I think the earilier reviews require/invite it.

It is utter, godawful, uber-saccharin, nonsensical fingers down the throat utter garbage.

It is so nauseatingly cute, incoherent and horrible; so full of desperately dire nursery rubbish that it made me want to smash my own face in. THERE'SI haven't seen the first movie, and after this trauma I absolutely do not want to.

Not perhaps the first animation, but certainly the first stop-animation (1899). This is simply a short ad for Bryant and May encouraging the viewer to buy matches so that Bryant and May might send money to the troops in the Boer War (it would seem more logical to just send matches to the troops, but nevermind: apparently animation was born of crass commercialism, since the only confirmed animations which pre-date this were also advertising shorts from the same producers).

It's interesting as a museum piece, but in no other way whatsoever, AFAIC. Anyone who can watch this and claim to have actually enjoyed it has to be pulling your leg.

Ghastly rubbish. Look, this is the sort of thing I used to moan on about re English things such as Beano, Cor, Whizzer and Chips et al, and which was gloriously kicked in the nuts by Viz and Peter Cook's 'Roger Mellie the Man on the Telly'. I read the comic Dennis the Menace when I was a kid, and I thought it was cobblers. Then some brain-dead nonce decided to make a cartoon series of it (this is not an exclusively British perversion. The yanks made a feature film of 'Richie Rich') - but OMG, it's ghastly. The humour is 1950's. It's just bloody awful. Can you imagine Innuits sitting around watching this and being amused? NO? What about Belgians? Well, Belgians only laugh at the Irish government.

Umm... yeah, Dennis is a kid and he has a couple of other kid friends, and he has an antisocial personality, dumb parents, and there's a stupid policeman, and an ugly dog, and... look, just don't bother.

Hideous, cringeworthy, soppy rubbish. When they first played 'Return of the Jedi', it's said that they got the reels back to front, and nobody noticed. Now, take the worst thing from that movie, make it into a cruddy TV series, and you might guess why, by this stage, I would rather have watched a documentary about ant-lions mating.
