everything's fun when it's a joke
30 September 2007 | by (Portland, Oregon, USA) – See all my reviews

One of the many short cartoons from Porky Pig's early days has him sneaking into a movie theater chock full of every pun imaginable. I should identify that these puns are basically groaners that one would expect to find in math homework or in crossword puzzles. But you gotta admit that there are some funny ones in there.

Even beyond word jokes, the cartoon never misses an opportunity for a sight gag. Whether it's the guy's legs, or what happens in the Lone Stranger movie, they keep the surprises coming at you at full speed. So, even if "The Film Fan" isn't the greatest cartoon created by the Termite Terrace crowd, you should still at least watch it for some laughs. It's sure to elicit at least some.
