The last Chilly Willy release has him and the polar bear in an environmentalist fight with a man on an icebreaker who wants to drill an oil well in the arctic. The point of the movie is admirable, although, understandably in a short cartoon aimed at children, hardly balanced; certainly few adults make serious efforts to be balanced in their positions.
The animation is, for the era fairly good, although the story is limited to a few relatively unadorned efforts at mutual destruction. Although Chilly Willy was never a great cartoon character, this was the end of the line for Lantz and a weak, although serious coda to a long and happy career.
