30+ Years Ahead of R. Crumb, 28 June 2003
Author: Erich Young (erichyoung) from USA

Watching this fabulous pre-WWII creation, I was immediately reminded of the American cartoonist R. Crumb. What is interesting is that R. Crumb admitted to taking hallucinogenic drugs to draw his strange comics in the late 1960's. Of course, this cartoon with Porky Pig doesn't include Crumb's sense of pornography (thankfully). Crumb's comics are simply rehash seeing some of the inhabitants of Wackyland. I wonder what the illustrators back then did to create such fantastic off the wall stuff. Sure, there were some obvious inspirations in this cartoon (3 stooges) but just about everything is going insane!

Thoroughly enjoyable and liberating cartoon for 1938! I saw it in color on Cartoonland. I wonder if I saw the colorized version (It was in color...)
