A fun animation that eventually outstays its welcome...

A Town Called Panic review

You might recognise the look of this French-language animation from the Cravendale milk ads, but A Town Called Panic began as a TV series.

And perhaps it should have stayed that way. The plastic-toy cast compensate for limited expressiveness by charging around with abandon, but the crackpot plot – tracing the fallout when Cowboy and Indian accidentally order 50 million bricks for delivery – runs from inspired to tired.

Novel and fun, but like playtime with an excitable five year old, it soon wears you out.
