"Why doesn't somebody fix these things"
25 August 2012 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

One of Porky's earliest cartoons and a great one. Porky's character animation was more refined later on, but is still acceptable. The rest of the animation is great, the transfer from black and white to colour gives it a sumptuous and haunting visual style which works very well. The music is lush and characterful, while the dialogue from Gabby's "why doesn't somebody fix these things" to the boss' "Well, well! If it isn't the rover boys! and only two hours late too!" is very funny. The gags are equally clever, though also done in a way that you do sympathise with Porky and Gabby's predicament of not being able to sleep. Porky I can find bland at times when paired with Daffy later on, but he is very good here and works well with Gabby, who is every bit his equal. Mel Blanc's voice work is stellar. On the whole, a great short and one of Porky's better ones. 9/10 Bethany Cox
