This rather pedestrian canine outing pretty much brings up the rear . . .
23 May 2017 | by (The Gutters of Baltimore) – See all my reviews

. . . of the 270 Looney Tunes from the 1930s (NOT counting THE TALK-INK KID of 1929, which technically wasn't a Looney Tune since it was a pilot that Rudolf Ising and Hugh Harman were shopping around to all the studios as the waves of the Rich People Party's Depression Tsunami began breaking upon America's shores). While THE CURIOUS PUPPY may not be the worst of these 22 1/2 dozen animated shorts, few would argue that it's closer to the cream of the crop than the dregs at the bottom. The Warner Bros.' always prophetic cartoon prognosticators are murkier than usual in spelling out scenarios for Americans of (the Then) Far Future's Upcoming Doom, as well. But some of the Seasoned Explicators of these Nostradamus-like forecasts will see that the title pooch who gets his butt spanked and salted in the automatic popcorn machine (perhaps it's best not to discuss in front of a mixed audience which part of him gets buttered!) represents U.S. White House resident Don Juan Rump and his big brown watch dog playmate is, of course, none other than Rump's handler, Red Commie KGB Chief Vlad "The Mad Russian" Putin.
