Hoppy lost in the Woods
18 December 2019 | by girvsjointSee all my reviews

There's not really any such thing as a bad Hoppy film, but this one comes close, for a start Russell Hayden's gone, then Hoppy spends most of the film dressed in lumberjack clobber, and looks like he may have borrowed one of Buster Keaton's hats? So, he doesn't really look like Hoppy for most of the film! I guess they were trying for something different, but for me, it didn't work.
