There's a delightfully sinister edge to these seeminly-happy cartoons, one that takes them out of the sugary sweetness of Disney and into a darker realm altogether. Oh sure, they have the charm and the energy, they have the button noses and shiny eyes, but those two-tone stripes and oddly blank eyes suggest a slight curdling of the milkshake. Not just for kids, after all.
