"Look at me fellas I'm a yo yo! I'm a yo yo!"
25 August 2013 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

As with most Looney Tunes cartoons, thoroughly entertaining and definitely recommended. One gag does fall flat though, the counting fish gag is not very funny and feels drawn out, and some of the middle can feel rather rushed and manic. The animation is very fluid and detailed though, with all the characters drawn well, the black and white is beautifully shaded. The music is orchestrated beautifully, especially when the fish is introduced, and is very characterful, matching the facial expressions remarkably. The story doesn't try to do too much nor does it feel too thin, and it is paced very nicely. It's also well-structured generally, the beginning gently sets things up while also providing some good laughs, and the ending is so funny it makes the sides split. The dialogue is fresh and sharp, the fish's lines are a riot, and the gags are cleverly timed and most make their mark, Porky imitating a fish is just hilarious, easily one of the funniest things he's ever done. Porky is a good lead, not as bland as he can be at times, and the cat is a gem of a character in facial expressions and such. The flying fish- the anchor character of The Sour Puss-, aside from a slightly grating giddy laugh, is wonderfully wacky and often steals the show. Occasionally though especially in the middle it can mean that Porky and the cat are a little sidelined in terms of humour, so the character rapport and such can be a little imbalanced. The canary's Now I've seen everything moment doesn't disappoint either. Mel Blanc does a fine job with all the characters, if slightly overdoing it with the fish. In conclusion, very good and entertaining. 7.5/10 Bethany Cox
