Full of sight gags as well as renditions of "La Cucaracha"
16 February 2002 | by (Tucson AZ) – See all my reviews

This early Porky as done by Tex Avery is early Avery form-sight gags that play with the conventions of the animated short. Porky as bullfighter. Listen for the singing of "La Cucaracha", as Mel Blanc does the vocals on it at one point. It's a wonderful song anyway, particularly if you understand Spanish. Well worth seeking out. Recommended.
