From Jon Cooke : Ludwig Von Drake Ludwig Von Drake is a very funny character, and I can't wait to see more of him. Whoever does the voice nowadays does a great impression of Paul Frees' original. One question: when did Ludwig become a wacky inventor? Originally, he was just a wacky professor/psychatrist. Still, that's just a minor nitpick - I thought this 90 second "Gag Cartoon" was funny.
From Juan F. Lara : Von Drake has this big setup of what the Time Reverser can do, and all it does is blow up? That's the best plot they came up with for a time-machine premise? Also, I thought the animation was sub par in this short. Von Drake was flailing a lot. He seemed to be moving faster than he was talking, and so the soundtrack clashed with what's actually onscreen. This was my least favorite of the shorts.
From John Renard : I love Von Drake but this short was just stupid. And why the heck is he living with his mother?! I hope these get better. The bunsen burner joke was poorly done, in my opinion. However, the voicing was good. Very good. Is kooky a family word?
From Aaron : My least favorite short in this episode. This cartoon is pointless. The Time Machine shouldn't have blown up.
