A Porky Pig Halloween cartoon
28 October 2007 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

This one of my favorite Porky Pig cartoons directed by Frank Tashlin. I thought it is really very funny, like it has scenes that you will remember off the top of your head.

I love the scene when the lights go out the four brothers (Patrick, Peter, Percy and Portos) disappear. And when the light is on, X marks the spot where each brother stand. I also love it when Porky got scared, after seeing "Evil" Lawyer Goodwill, he ran down (or is it reverse?) the stairs like a flash. Then he jumps right into Goodwill's arms, stuttering "I just saw a..." This cartoon is a also great cartoon for Halloween too, I highly recommend it.
