I can see how this might give people nightmares.
2 March 2007 | by (Portland, Oregon, USA) – See all my reviews

When Porky Pig was only about a year old - Mel Blanc wasn't even providing his voice yet - he starred in this mildly deranged cartoon. He goes fishing, only to dream that a fish catches him and tries to cook him. If the events portrayed in "Fish Tales" aren't what we usually expect from that most famous member of the family Suidae, we can probably excuse it, knowing that the animators might have not yet figured out what they wanted the porker to do (Leonard Maltin said that they eventually realized that he wasn't as much an actor as a reactor). And when they started pairing him with Daffy Duck, things really got good. As for this one, you may have misgivings about eating fish after watching it.
