A great cartoon western and some plot twists

this is a story about Huckleberry Hound. He is named sheriff of a Western town. Unfortunately, there are these outlaw brothers who want to kill him, and his friends (such as Yogi bear and Boo-boo)desert him. Eventually, he meets and falls in love with an American Indian princess. Will he prevail? Will his friends come back? See the movie and find out.

Probably the best in the series

I was interested in watching this movie only because it was the highest rated animated Hanna Barbara movie on this website. I admit to not being a fan of Huckleberry Hound. I also admit to not even being a fan of any of the shows these characters came from! This was still quite a decent film. The funniest part is when Huckleberry inspects the cake to make sure there isn't a file in it. While he does that, Stinky gives his brothers jackhammers and pick axes!

The pacing is quite nice and the romantic subplot with Desert Flower was quite enjoyable. I admit it is kind of weird to see them get married after meeting each other so soon, but what do I care? I'm just a sucker for romance! Huckleberry himself is quite likeable. The animation, while not great, is certainly good looking. It does seem like a reference to classic Tex Avery cartoons. ***

The best of the "Hanna-Barbera Superstar 10" series

While liking the character of Huckleberry Hound himself, his show was not one of my favourites from Hanna-Barbera. It was still a good show, though with some animation limitations and repetitive story lines every now and again but the title character, voice acting, "My Darling Clementine" and the humour were great.

'The Good, The Bad and Huckleberry Hound' to me is the best of the "Hanna-Barbera Superstar 10" series with 'Yogi's Great Escape' being the weakest. The "Hanna-Barbera Superstar 10" series ia a collection of specials/films made during the late 80s featuring Hanna-Barbera stars like Scooby Doo, Yogi Bear, The Flintstones, The Jetsons and Huckleberry Hound. None of them are great or masterpieces, but none are bad.

Most of 'The Good, The Bad and Huckleberry Hound' works very well indeed. My only complaints really are the out of place modern technology jokes, that juxtapose too much with the jokes that are true to the style of humour of the show, and that some of the characters while still delightful could have had more screen time and more to do.

For those few faults, there are a number of great things. The animation is vibrantly colourful and crisply detailed, not exactly true to the show's animation style but for something not made on a high budget this was pretty good. The music has a lot of character and energy and fits dynamically.

The writing and jokes are some of the most imaginatively timed and funniest of the "Superstars 10" films, and this is the film of the series, advantaged by the ingeniously rendered Western setting, with the best story, kept simple but not feeling padded, confused or repetitive.

Characters all entertain despite the too little screen time for some, and the voice acting from some of the most talented names in the business is terrific. What a masterstroke to have Daws Butler in particular in multiple signature roles, but nobody disappoints.

Overall, very good and entertaining. 8/10 Bethany Cox
