Trivia

Stage actress Lucille La Verne provided the voice of "The Bomber". It was surprising for La Verne to do a cartoon since, at that time, many stage actors refused to do film, much less a cartoon. About a year later, La Verne voiced the Wicked Queen/Old Crone, in Disney's Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs (1937). See more »

Formative Porky cartoon-formative Avery too
22 November 2002 | by (Tucson AZ) – See all my reviews

This is an early Tex Avery, with Avery still feeling his way. The cartoon is actually more cute than menacing and Avery seems to have more fun with the villain than with our hero, the rather hefty Porky (this was a formative cartoon, when they were still fiddling around with character design and Porky carried a good deal more weight then), with Porky's role limited to one running gag and the payoff at the end. This is a cute cartoon and there are quite a few sight gags, but pacing is slower and the gags are more repetitive in nature and form than later Avery shorts. Avery taking baby steps. But I like this one a lot, personally. The original black and white is far superior to the later colorized version (usually true, but in this case, the use of shadows originally makes colorizing this one an especially bad idea), so try and catch the black and white. Well worth watching. Recommended.
