First things first I adore One Froggy Evening, for me it is one of the all-time great cartoons with beautiful animation, wonderful music and Michigan is just a joy to watch. I wasn't sure about this sequel at first, but I was all for seeing it. And I am glad I did, Another Froggy Evening is terrific, and a worthy sequel to a timeless masterpiece.
Is it as good as One Froggy Evening? For me, not quite. That said, this is not pointless. It is funny(I'd actually go to say it is funnier than One Froggy Evening), charming and well worth watching.
So what are the many good things of Another Froggy Evening? The animation is a definite plus. It is vibrant and colourful, it doesn't look plastic, and makes some effort to stick to the style of One Froggy Evening while having a promising sheen to it. The music is amazing as well, some I recognised and others I wasn't quite familiar with but it made me somewhat nostalgic. The plot-line isn't exactly original as it kind of follows a similar structure to One Froggy Evening, but it isn't at all hackneyed and has many memorably funny parts to it. Then there are the characters, the caveman especially looks exactly like the demolition man and all the characters from the Roman to Robinson Crusoe were put to good purpose. But of course it is Michigan's show all the way, such a funny and charming frog who is so much fun to watch and will continue to do so. His singing voice isn't quite as limpid this time around, but it is still beautiful and mellow and does perfect justice to the music. Also not only the pacing just right, but the moral is well judged without it preaching and the ending with a cameo from a I feel underrated Looney Tunes character is a delight.
Overall, a terrific cartoon that deserves more recognition than it does. It isn't as good I agree, but it is a worthy sequel that doesn't lack in any fun or charm of its original. 9/10 Bethany Cox
