GENERAL THOUGHTS

This is what launched me into the Get Along Gang, and I'm thankful for it. The only thing I didn't like about it were the voices, especially Montgomery's and Leland's. They were just a little . . . . I don't know, weird for my taste.

One thing that's been bothering me about this. If the Gang members are supposed to be kids, how did Montgomery know how to drive a car? Well, I guess in cartoons, you can do anything, am I right?

The animation was done by Nelvana, which is a Canadian animation studio. They have done the animation for the Care Bears movies, and the Care Bears TV show, among other things.
