Storyline

It's the Giants vs. the Red Sox in the final game of the World Series, and Porky's doing play-by-play for the radio audience. The umpire is blind; the bat boy is, literally, a bat, and the catcher's a fast-talking turtle. The Giant's pitcher is literally a giant. And of course, as with any New York-Boston matchup, the Giants win. Written by Jon Reeves <jreeves@imdb.com>

Freleng Gags
9 December 2006 | by (New York City) – See all my reviews

Friz Freleng had one rule when doing movies: lots of perfectly-timed gags -- and if some aren't top-notch, the pacing carries you along. This one takes a while before you get to the good gags -- the first that I think top-notch is when the umpire comes out, but the pacing is always funny. As with almost any Freleng cartoon, well worth the few minutes it takes to watch it.

Note: when 'The Mayor' throws out the first baseball, it is a clear caricature of Fiorello LaGuardia, well-loved mayor of New York in this era. During a newspaper strike he went on the air to read the comics to his deprived citizenry, and here Freleng takes the opportunity to return the favor.
