Bob Clampett
24 July 2008 | by (New York City) – See all my reviews

Clampett left Warner Brothers, did the Beany & Cecil puppet shows and seems to have dropped from the consciousness of animation fans. Yet there was no one with a wilder sense of cartoon stretching than he. He spent much of the late 1930s doing Porky Pig movies (when he produced his first masterpiece, PORKY IN WACKYLAND), but mostly he was confounded by the fact that Porky, although Termite Terrace's major star in the period, seemed to lack much of a personality; through the 1950s he remained more of a character actor than a star.

In this one he sets up the situation, which is a cat-versus-mouse routine. It's a very funny movie -- by this time, Warner's had developed its cartooning style, so that its shorts were all good -- but not one of the amazing ones. Still, it's well worth your time.
