"Good morning, my little chickadee."

Friz Freleng Merrie Melodies short about Mrs. Hamhock, a pig widow with a house full of precocious little piglets. A con man (that looks and talks like W.C. Fields) tries to woo her for money she just inherited. Mrs. Hamhock must have had a loveless marriage as she seems very eager to get with this new guy before her husband is cold in the ground. Anyway her piglets see right through the con artist and do their best to sabotage the courtship. The animation is nice and colorful. Nothing compared to Disney at the time but not too shabby. The music is very quaint and nice. You could just imagine people sitting around their parlor eighty years ago listening to this sort of music. It's a cute cartoon, as was the style of the time. Not particularly funny or noteworthy, just cute. The W.C. Fields character is amusing and the little piglets running around doing their thing is adorable as all get out. Worth a look if you're a fan of the period but don't expect a classic.
