love's labor's crossed
5 October 2007 | by (Portland, Oregon, USA) – See all my reviews

Love may be blind, but some people may need it like that. Such is Porky Pig's fate in "Porky's Romance". After he goes to all the trouble to buy his dream girl Petunia flowers, candy, etc., the holier-than-thou sow rejects him. But what if she accepts him? Apparently, she and her worthless dog Fluffnins (can't these women ever give their dogs better names?) spend all day eating candy - and both growing fatter than Rush Limbaugh - while Porky is their slave.

OK, so this cartoon asserts that women are cute but shallow creeps (Petunia falls for Porky after seeing the candy), while men are angry jerks (look at what Porky does at the end). Or maybe these two are like that just for this one cartoon. Either way, it's a little bit weird, but not terrible. Maybe the Termite Terrace crowd was on the verge of finding the zany path that their cartoons would take but hadn't quite found it. I see that this got released a week or two before Daffy Duck made his debut; I guess that his debut solidified their wacky repertoire.
