before Charlie (but still on Termite Terrace)
4 September 2007 | by (Portland, Oregon, USA) – See all my reviews

If the average person thinks of a pesky dog trying to get Porky Pig to adopt him, s/he will probably think of Charlie, who invaded Porky's life in "Little Orphan Airedale" (which I interpreted as having the same gist as the Alan Bates movie "King of Hearts"*), "Often an Orphan" and "Awful Orphan". Well, a few years before all those, there was "Porky's Pooch", featuring Rover. As always, the wise guy mutt stops at nothing to try and become Porky's pet.

I noticed an in-joke: Porky's building is called Termite Terrace. Hard-core Looney Tunes fans probably know that Termite Terrace is the building where the Chuck Jones/Friz Freleng/Bob Clampett crowd created the cartoons.

Overall, I preferred the Charlie cartoons better, as this one had sort of an abrupt ending. But it still worked as brief entertainment. Worth seeing.

*"King of Hearts" shows that the people in the insane asylum weren't as crazy as the people behind WWI; "Little Orphan Airedale" portrays Charlie's friend deciding...well, I won't spoil it. As it is, I may have been the only person who interpreted a link between the two.
