Cobweb Hotel (film #12 on Cartoon Crazys: Sci-Fi (WinStar Home Entertainment, 1999). Also, film #7 on Weird Cartoons (Rhino, 1987)). [Category: Hollywood]

This cartoon is not really all that weird, not in comparison with a lot of others of its time (1930s). It has the standard 1930s cartoon plot of a bunch of cute little characters battling a big ugly bad guy––in this case, a bunch of flies battling a big ugly spider who runs the "Cobweb Hotel", which is really a front for his web! For all that, though, it's a pretty fun cartoon with great artwork and animation. Rhino gets docked 10 points for cutting off the ending, though.

Ratings: Camp/Humor Value: ***. Weirdness: ***. Historical Interest: ***. Overall Rating: ***.
