"Candy Capers is a gay little dance fantasy in animation, using lollypops, wafers and other familiar childhood sweets. It is gay, that is, until the entrance of the villain— a long black sinuous licorice snake. The wafers shiver in horror as one of them is captured by the intruder. Then they organize their attack and rout the enemy. Roy Fulmer jr. has achieved smooth animation of his puppets and accompanies them with a pleasant musical score. The result is a bit of confection that is a delight to the eye and ear." Movie Makers, Dec. 1953, 334.
"Taking the familiar 'Twas the Night Before Christmas as a theme, Bert Seckendorf and Vic Watson have put together an appealing children's holiday film combining live action with animation. The live action interludes show a father reading the poem to his young son on Christmas Eve, with the familiar lines superimposed at the base of the scene. These connectives then fade out to miniature sets in which animated figures re-enact the well known story of St. Nick. The film suffers from some underexposure and uneven animation in places, but it offers a very pleasant holiday item." Movie Makers, Dec. 1949, 455,468.

"That most difficult and painstaking of film forms known as animation also may be one of the most rewarding, especially when the result is as delightful as The Deserted Mill, by Irwin Lapointe. This film is, quite simply, a leisurely picturization of an old mill, with its placid stream and the animals, large and small, that live in and around it. Mr. Lapointe's art work is imaginative and his camera treatment of the material crisp and well paced. A stimulating musical accompaniment by Ferde Grofe complements the picture's mood and aids immeasurably in making this little film a rewarding one both to the filmer and to his future audiences — which should be legion." Movie Makers, Dec. 1953, 334.
"A puppet animation telling the story of Little Mutz, who, after his morning exercises, sets out in his sports car, leaving behind his father who is only interested in his newspaper and their black manservant who plays the banjo and dances. The car falls into a ravine but Mutz, unhurt, tackles the crocodile which then approaches, running it through with his sword. An ape-like, smoke-breathing monster - Nasobem - appears and after dispatching it in a like manner, Mutz returns home. In the next adventure, Mutz rockets into space and lands on Planet X. He finds he is the same size as Annett a porcelain model dancer. At midnight she comes alive and dances to his delight but falls from the shelf and shatters on the floor and Mutz walks off dejected."
