It's all right
20 May 2000 | by (Ardmore, PA) – See all my reviews

This was an all right Porky Pig short. Most of the jokes were not really stale and it had some really funny stuff here. The whole story is kind of interesting, not really at all boring. It wasn't excellent, but it was good. Thumbs up.
