I can't tell you why a Looney Tunes style Pokemon short exists now, it just does. While Scraggy and Mimikyu are not the first pair I would have chosen, they work rather well as a Road Runner / Wile E. Coyote comedy pair.

While I wouldn't call this a revolutionary breakthrough in the history of animation, if you are a Pokemon fan, you will enjoy this. It's only 4 minutes long and available on YouTube, so what do you have to lose?

The only real downside I see with the cartoon is the story. As in there isn't really one. But the story was never one of read more

Want a Disney Pokemon? There you go.. Nothing more to it, very bland, and overall really nothing to it. It's kinda it's so bad it's funny, which I think was intended for the older audience, but then again Japan doesn't advertise Disney as much as America, so it's only natural they would try to do something reminiscent.

It runs on the classic 24 frames, while anime is usually on 6-12, so it's interesting to say the least, it also keeps the old Disney feel which was a bit nostalgic, but not enough to say I enjoyed it. Honestly I don't think I really got the read more

After finding this on MAL, I was curious and after some searching on YouTube, found it and sat down with some Popcorn to watch it.

It's cute and has that Disney animation quality like "Steamboat Willy" so that was enjoyable for me. And because I grew up with Disney shorts and Pokemon, seeing the two together just made me smile.

Story (5) - The story...there really wasn't one. It opened with Zuruggu (Scraggy) eating beans, and then went from there. There was zero plot at all, just a bunch of cause-and-effect scenes happening pretty much all at once. The main title is literally just two Pokemon names read more

As someone who was brought up on short western classics such as Looney Tunes, Popeye and Tom & Jerry, seeing that Pokémon spun out their own take on this type of animation had me intrigued to say the least.

While the story (if you can call it that) is nothing to really write home about, I feel this suits the nostalgic charm of the type of fast paced, slapstick style comedy that the creators of this animation were trying to nail.

Overall I'd still give it a 10/10 for making me feel like a kid again. Just sat there giggling with a big stupid grin read more
