Review of ‘DC League of Super Pets’, furry heroes

Animated adventure in which we meet Krypto the Superdog, Ace the hound, PB the pot-bellied pig, Merton the turtle and the unstoppable Chip the squirrel.

    Here is the DC proposal, closer to his fertile, imaginative and risky television preserve (and animation: a garden from which Marvel has not yet learned anything), which in all probability will drive him and his army of bots out of their boxes netizens, to Zack Snyder, although if you reflect for a moment there is as much or more of conceptual simplicity in Snyder’s showy televangelist epics than in this simple Don Miki animated adventure with the pets of the members of the Justice League.

    ‘DC League of Superpets’ is the same or more childish than an episode of ‘Paw Patrol’ (to which he dedicates a gag that will make both children and parents smile exhausted by marathons of the animated series), but in it lies its charm (in addition to a visual design and a display of high-grade animation techniques), the same as Krypto’s four-color adventures had in the saturated color and print pages of the Mexican Editorial Novaro comics that we arrived in Spain in the early 1970s. The idea of ​​interanimal solidarity, the dethroned prince syndrome and humor as elemental as it is elemental is the idea of ​​a super group of mascots of the canonical superheroes of Superman’s house at the same level of powers that their not masters, but companions and friends. Family, sure.

    The film does not go beyond the minimal idea of ​​rescuing the human (super-human) element by the animal, a scheme that gives rise not only to an all-out bet on whether the same joke, in different variations, can continue being funny (which ends up being) and to humanize superheroes from the perspective of their pets, but to revive and claim the role of the eternal secondary. In fact (and I speak more for parents but recommending that they prepare their offspring) the members of this ‘DC League of Superpets’ (and supervillains) are twinned in time with the Baker Street Irregulars, that heterogeneous gang that helped Sherlock Holmes and that in some adventure not of Conan Doyle but of his canon he disappeared and had to be rescued by her.

    With all the ful animation that has been straining us with the excuse of being for children that we have had to swallow, ‘DC League of Superpets’ looks formal and despite not wanting (almost never) to please adults to focus on the smallest of the house is a very worthy product.

    For the fifth of the DC bottle

    The best thing: he knows what audience he is targeting, including that of DC.

    The worst: his excess of morality and messages.
