Porky Pig as Mr. Moto
20 October 2009 | by (Louisville, KY) – See all my reviews

Porky's Movie Mystery (1939)

*** (out of 4)

Fun short from Warner has a mysterious creature known as The Phantom stalking various Hollywood studios. Actors are too scared to act, cameras are being destroyed and all productions have been shut down. It turns out that the Invisible Man is behind all the destruction so it's up to Mr. Moto (Porky Pig) to track him down. This is a pretty fun short from start to finish as we get a lot of winks to previous movies. It's obvious the film is spoofing James Whale's THE INVISIBLE MAN who, at this point, had only been in one movie but a sequel would follow a year after this cartoon. How ironic. The jokes are all pretty good with Porky getting a lot of laughs as Moto but obviously those sensitive to certain politically incorrect humor might not want to watch this. The stutter is still there of course and it makes for plenty of laughs. The scene with the Frankenstein monster being "bullied" into talking was quite funny but the final joke of the film pretty much falls flat.
