a Scots dog, a smart dog, and our Porky friend
28 August 2007 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

One of the better Porky cartoons, this one centres on Rover, a smart dog from the street who decides to find himself a master and fixes on our favourite pig, disturbing his bathtime and making himself a general nuisance.

Porky of course is eventually taken in after some riotous behaviour and manipulation by Rover, as the dog explains to down on his luck Scots dog Andy - Andy has just been hypnotised by the sight of fresh meat being cooked before his eyes but not offered as food.

Like Mickey Mouse with Pluto, it seems preposterous that a pig would own a dog, but that's animation for you! This Looney Tune is fun, snappy, and clever.
