A solid Frank Tashlin Porky cartoon
24 October 2013 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Not among his best though, Porky the Fireman was a real standout. The beavers are on the annoying side, though admittedly they do work alright with Porky, the ending is rather mawkish and somehow it does feel odd not having Mel Blanc voice Porky, Joe Dougherty from personal taste overdoes the stutter too much. The animation is beautifully shaded and drawn though, and Tashlin's directing style really comes through in his camera angles and the quick cuts technique. The music has always been a strength with Looney Tunes, Porky in the North Woods is not an exception. The character, lushness in orchestration and energetic rhythms can be heard and very effectively. The writing is witty and warm-hearted, the story may be on the unexceptional side but the slick pacing and energy still makes it entertaining. Porky is not the strongest of lead character, though he acquits himself quite well still. Jean-Baptiste is the best character in Porky in the North Woods however and whoever cast Billy Bletcher as the character deserved a medal, Bletcher's voice work was spot on. Overall, solid if not great cartoon. Recommended but not an absolute must. 7/10 Bethany Cox
