“Goldilocks and the Jivin’ Bears” (1944)

And the final of the infamous “Censored Eleven” is, perhaps rather fittingly, the cartoon with the least amount of objectionable content in it. This is probably the most palatable of the eleven, but it’s also the most okay. It’s got some good music, and some decent gags, but nothing that you can’t see in other cartoons; there’s not really anything here to help push this beyond anything other than standard. This isn’t a bad short at all, since it is enjoyable and a pleasant watch, and it doesn’t really do anything that wrong; it’s just that it struggles to find its own unique voice, which means it’ll easily be lost under the tsunami of the other Looney Tunes cartoons. And if it wasn’t for its reputation, it would be hard to remember that this even exists.
