Storyline

Porky ventures into Darkest Africa in search of the last Do-Do bird, and winds up in Wackyland, a surreal place where the sun comes up atop a human pyramid, the Warner Brothers shield comes zooming from the sky, and populated by creatures such as a three-headed Larry Moe and Curly beast. The Do-Do finally appears, to great fanfare, and eludes Porky by pulling out a pencil and drawing himself a door. Written by Paul Penna <tterrace@wco.com>

the first TRUE Clampett Cartoon
31 October 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This 21 minute documentary on the work of Bob Clampett can be seen on Disc 3 of the Looney Tunes Golden Collection Volume 2. And is very much worth it for any fan of his, of which I certainly am. Featuring interviews by his daughter, fellow cartoonists, and other notables, it also features clips of his work as well as old stills of behind the scenes stuff. This is great stuff and i loved watching every second of it. Needless to say I feel that this is the best "Behind the Tunes" featurette of all that I've seen hands-down. There will never be another Bob Clampett in my or your lifetime.

My Grade: A+
