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.
The name, “Audio Productions Inc.” inspires about as much confidence as a grocery store with the monicker, “Food N’ Shit”. Cartoons and fairy tales only avoid coming up crap when it’s outright parody or came from Disney when the founder still called the shots. “Once Upon A Time”, a generic title released from a studio with a generic title does not have either safeguards, making it an appropriately unlucky 13th entry for this series.
We’re dealing with a fairly tale metaverse in which all characters of various stories interact on a daily basis. As the picture indicates, you can’t tell who the hell most of them are without labeling. Humpty Dumpty is identifiable only because he’s one of the only eggs I can think of in fables.
And of course there’s a terrible song. More of these songs have lyrics that I don’t bother to repeat, since they’re quite often garbled, warbling messes with all the grain and hiccups of your great grandmother’s phonograph collection.
