Concept: 2/4 (Indifferent)
Story: 2/4 (Indifferent)
Characters: 3/4 (Good)
Dialog: 3/4 (Good)
Pacing: 4/4 (Great)
Cinematography: 4/4 (Great)
Special effects/design: 4/4 (Great)
Acting: 4/4 (Great)
Music: 4/4 (Great)
Subjective Rating: 9/10 (One of my favorites, 4/4 5/4). Wow. I always love Clampett's style, but there's usually something disconnected about his cartoons. In this case, everything comes together in beautifully depraved harmony. And when Clampett's energy is successfully focused, it is an awesome force.
Objective Rating (Average): 3.4/4 3.5/4 (Very good)
