Hilarious
20 May 2000 | by (Ardmore, PA) – See all my reviews

This a hilarious Looney Tune. Unlike most early Porky Pig cartoons, this one was actually funny which something of a surprise. It was somewhat refreshing in a way. Some of the stuff they did here would become classic gags in later shorts. Really good.
