The Adventures of Little Audrey is an upcoming American animated slapstick comedy television series, produced by DreamWorks Animation Television and aired on Universal Kids. It was the second television series in the Little Audrey franchise.
Unlike its online-streaming sister show, Harvey Girls Forever!, which consists two traditional 11-minute segments, each 22-minute episode consists three 7-minute segments, two featuring Little Audrey, and one starring the Little Audrey co-stars (including Little Dot, Little Lotta, Melvin, Lucretia, Tiny, Patches, Richie Rich and Gloria Glad). Each one have their own supporting casts.
Why It Rock
- It stays 100% to the classic Little Audrey theatrical cartoons.
- The very zany slapstick animation that takes full advantage of the Famous Studios style.
- The series brought back the characters (Little Audrey, Little Dot, Little Lotta, Melvin, Lucretia, Tiny and Richie Rich) back to their official counterparts.
- Little Audrey, Little Dot and Little Lotta switches back to their most iconic 1930s outfits (including a little dress with short, puffy sleeves, white socks and a pair of very shiny black Mary Jane shoes.)
- Like the Harvey Girls Forever! series, it was wackier and cartoonier than the Little Audrey cartoons and the Harvey Girls comic books.
- Jazzy soundtrack.
- Little Audrey's most iconic jazzy theme song, Little Audrey Says became jazzier, as it was rearranged by Glenn Miller Orchestra, and sung by a female jazz singer, Kat Edmonson.
- Cutesy character designs, in the style of Famous Studios cartoons.
- The voice acting is very good, because their casting is better and the cute Little Audrey and her boyfriend, Melvin now sounds like kids.
- Grey Griffin reprised her role as Lucretia.
- Several funny moments.
- The success of this TV series led DreamWorks Animation to create the feature-length musical comedy film, that bring the cute Little Audrey back to the silver screen.
- The series' ending theme song, "The Cutest Tomboy", was so adorable, with Little Audrey singing her cutesy, jazzy tune.
- Surprisingly, with a surreal universe, there's going to be a surreal comedy, despite being set in the 1930s New York City. Because, it has anthropomorphic objects (including households, radios, cars, clocks and even boats), with very funny-looking background elements.
- This series expands on the surreal universe present in most silent-era cartoons, and sound cartoons of the late-1920s and early-1930s.
- Little Audrey, Melvin, Lucretia, Little Dot, Little Lotta, Tiny, Patches, Richie Rich and Gloria Glad are the most adorable characters.
- Little Audrey's brother, Patches, finally made his screen debut.
- It marked the very first time that Little Audrey, Little Dot, Little Lotta and Gloria Glad wears white gloves.
- The series follows the newly-implemented Bob Clampett-esque slapstick and Tex Avery-style humor.
- Like Warner Bros. cartoons of the 1930s and MGM cartoons of the 1940s and '50s, the series had the amazing gags in the style of Tex Avery.
- The series making use of a wide array of various zany cartoon sound effects (mainly from the Warner Bros. and Hanna-Barbera cartoons).
- The gross-out humor is done right in this girl-oriented show, especially when Little Audrey belching and farting.
The ONLY Bad Quality
- While the show became so successful in America and around the world, it wasn't well-received in Russia, due to its infamous Russian dub.
This series received mostly positive reviews.
