Hundreds of Beavers exists at the crossroads of Looney Tunes, Benny Hill, Cannibal: The Musical, Blazing Saddles, and Adult Swim mindsets. Chris Ryan’s score evokes the booming brass swells of frontier cinema, including original songs about Jean’s adventures like narrative explainers were once sung about Mel Brooks’ Rock Ridge. [Director Mike] Cheslik’s command of budget reminds of Matt Stone and Trey Parker maximizing slim expenditures on their cannibalistic Old West musical — and their ability to make it all one big farcical gag also resonates with the South Park boys. Hundreds of Beavers is a testament to working within your means and letting restrictions define your success because everything starts with a proper story and, in comedy, a pure sense of humor. Check and double-check.”
