Storyline

The audience enters Porky's movie theater, with a collection of quick gags: A firefly acting as usher, a kangaroo taking tickets and putting the stubs in her pouch, a chicken buying child tickets for her eggs. A skunk tries to buy a ticket, costing a nickel, but he only has one scent. He looks for a way to sneak in. Meanwhile, Porky introduces the show: a collection of cartoons, drawn as stick figures. At the end, the audience is all gone because the skunk managed to sneak in. Porky's cartoons include: Circus Parade, Choo-Choo Train, Soldiers (Marchin), Horse Race, and Dances (hula, Mexican hat, and ballet). All accompanied by a self-parody musical score.

Watching "Porky's Preview", I was surprised that it wasn't wackier, given that Tex Avery directed (here he's billed as Fred). But even so, it's still fairly entertaining. The cartoon features Porky Pig showing a group of animals some work that he did as a child. Probably the cleverest gag comes early on: the entry fee is five cents, but the skunk only has one (s)cent.

I get the feeling that this one was sort of a place holder in between the really great cartoons (1941 also saw the release of "Tortoise Beats Hare" and "Wabbit Twouble"). Still, it's always great to see these classic cartoons. Worth seeing. As it's a special feature on the "Sergeant York" DVD, I wonder whether or not it preceded that movie in the theater.
