The only thing that keeps Cool World from imploding is that Bakshi turns it into a series of animator's riffs, with little explosions of toon action erupting like video game novas into the foreground of the story that isn't happening. [10 Jul 1992]

Cool World is less artful, short on scripted finesse, and is lacking technical acumen. [11 Jul 1992]

Underdrawn and overheated, Cool World will leave you cold. [13 Jul 1992]
