Great cartoon
30 March 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I am watching it at the moment off the Golden collection #2.

I love cars and auto racing, so I probably give it a higher score than someone who's not as in love with cars and auto racing as I am.

I dig scenes in car race movies with a villain I am not familiar with a lot of the celebrities represented. I did know some of the more famous ones, mentioned above.

You see so many gags over and over, some of the gags in this one are a bit unique. Porky hammering away, and then the car in front of him drives away, and you realize his engine is really small. Hilarious.

The artwork is simple at times, and great at other times. I loved a few shots of car engines with lots of valves opening and closing. The Laurel and Hardy scene with them pumping up a tire was cool. The actual racing looks cartoonish, but, well, you know, it IS a cartoon :)

I am not that into the black and white cartoons, but I liked this one. Porky was just along for the ride, so to speak, which was fine by me. I am not a big fan of him, for the most part.
