Good cartoon with some funny bit, but not a gem
13 February 2002 | by (Tucson AZ) – See all my reviews

Even Tex Avery's lesser work is enjoyable and this short is a case in point. Avery was still feeling his way here and his style was still in its formative stages. Porky was still being developed as a character as well. Some good sight gags here. Not the best short I've seen, by any means, but I've seen worse. Worth looking for and recommended if you like Tex Avery.
