Cartoon Hell is TheKarpuk’s attempt to review every single installment in an awful $5 collection called “150 Classic Cartoons” purchased at his local Wal-Mart. Your prayers are welcome.
There is not a man or woman in France who has not had their hearts warmed by the antics of the cartoon characters, “Les Escargots”. To this day the presence of Les Escargots lunch boxes, video games, and even fanciful snail hats indicates that the cartoons series still holds a vice-like grip on the hearts and minds of the French population. To see this, their first appearance on such a heinous collection is both an insult and a faint hope that this under-appreciated classic might finally find an audience stateside.
Before the film even begins, we see a list of the prizes “Les Escargots” has won. It has not be translated to English, because that would have a detrimental effect on its pride. Note also that there is a hair on the frame. We would make a joke about the French and hair removal, but that would sully this cinematic classic.
As you might have noticed on the title card, the film starts with one woman on what looks like a peach and sounds like a creaky balloon. The frame expands outward to show that this is apparently some sort of creaky peach aerobics class.
