Reviews and Comments

From TibbyH :

It's sad when the meme is better than the actual cartoon. Terrytoon's 1939 rendition of The Three Bears is a waste of time as it slowly meanders around to constitute as a short film. The animation is amateurish, the jokes (if even wanna call them that) are poorly timed out and fall flat on their face, and the voice acting sounds like one employee drunkenly spitting out lines with no real direction. You could do much better things with you than watch this trash. A perfect example that the Golden Age of Animation wasn't safe from garbage like this.

From Pokey J.Anti-Blockhead :

Yeah, Tibby you're right, and the studio's LATER vanity-project-named Terry Bears wasn't that much better. Happy dubious anniversary [blah] to this short[blah].

From Fortnermation2003 :

A popular Terrytoon that has the famous "Somebody Toucha My Spaghet"!

From PopKorn Kat :

The Woolworth's of animation could churn out some off-kilter and bonkers cartoons even during their tenure under the conservative Paul Terry. This is one of several pre-Jim Tyer examples of such ridiculousness. Stereotypically Italian bears? A sudden musical number? The beautifully imperfect animation? It's all here, and frankly I love it.
