Hewy Lewis Toonmore, a.k.a. Logan Ridenbaugh, gives his thoughts on animated films sometimes aided by a guest reviewer. For more recent movies, he explains the premise of the show without spoiling the ending. Older animated movies generally have much longer reviews. Each movie gets a rating out of five stars, although the lowest score he has given is just one star.
