Making Fun Of The Newsreels Of The Day
5 June 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The writers here poke fun at those newsreels that used to accompany feature films at the movie theater way back in the "classic era" days. They would be very short features highlighting a few news events going on during that time. This was long before TV would bring news from around the country or world that people could see.

In this cartoon, Porky presents his own newsreel. We see corny stories of parades, dog shows, an unveiling of a battleship, new airplanes, sporting events like a horse race - all kinds of things, more than what they really gave audiences back at this time.

You watch this cartoon and - believe me - you will wind up just shaking your head, muttering "How corny can you get?" It's unbelievable, but it's a fast-moving one and ridiculous as it was, still an entertaining Looney Tunes short.
