One cafe you'd want to go to
6 September 2017 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Love Looney Tunes, and while Porky is not one of my favourite Looney Tunes character, tending to fare better paired with stronger personalities (particularly Daffy Duck) than as a lead character (where he can be too much of a supporting character or outshone).

Porky does not feel like too much of a supporting character and he isn't outshined here. He is a very likable and amusing enough lead, and Conrad the Cat (in perhaps his best appearance of the few cartoons he appeared in) is a good partner. 'Porky's Cafe' is a great cartoon, but do agree that it looks better in black and white than in colour, the drawing in the black and white version is smoother and more natural, though the colour version looks lovely elsewhere. Also agree that, while admittedly entertaining, the ant/pancake subplot sags the momentum just a tad.

On the other hand, the animation is very good. The black and white is crisp and there is meticulous background detail and smooth character drawing.

Carl Stalling to me was always the best Warner Brothers/Looney Tunes composer as well as the most consistent. 'Porky's Cafe' is another example of consistent greatness, his music is lushly orchestration, cleverly synchronised, vibrant, characterful and not only fits and adds to the action but actually enhances it.

In terms of gags and the cool gadgets, they are clever and funny. Can't fault the voice acting at all.

All in all, great cartoon and one café you'd want to go to. 9/10 Bethany Cox
