Porky the Leading Man
15 September 2008 | by (New York City) – See all my reviews

At this stage, Porky was still Termite Terrace's only star -- although Daffy Duck was pulling up fast and Bugs would be introduced shortly. So he got tossed into every cartoon, including this rather dull retelling of 'Jack the Giant Killer', with a Giant who looks and sounds like Bluto from Popeye but who was, undoubtedly, voiced by Billy Bletcher.

Jokes in this one are thin and rather stretched out. Nor, despite their hand in inventing Bugs, are Dalton and Hardaway real prime Termite Terrace directors. Hardaway would soon go to Lantz, where he would work long, hard and well on Woody Woodpecker. Dalton would continue working through the 1950s.

The wonderful staff that had already built up at Termite Terrace stops this one from being a stinker, but it's certainly no classic. Look at it and then move on.
