One of the Weaker Tashlins
29 January 2008 | by (New York City) – See all my reviews

Until the rise of Daffy Duck and Bugs Bunny at the very end of the 1930s, Porky Pig was Termite Terrace's biggest star, but he was largely a straight man. In this one he is a farmer doing his spring planting, beset by a lazy watch dog ("I must be a watch dog -- I'm full of ticks") and raiding chickens. Part of my lack of enjoyment may be due to the poor coloring imposed on the print I saw.

Tashlin tries his best, using some of his interesting compositions. In the beginning scenes, while Porky is harrowing the ground before planting, he is shown in a tight shot from a very low angle -- almost a worm's-eye view. Tash would go from directing cartoons with very live-action compositions to live-action movies with very cartoonish set-ups. but this is not, alas, one of his better efforts.
