one of the most unpredictable cartoons
3 April 2007 | by (Portland, Oregon, USA) – See all my reviews

One of the things that I've always liked the most about the Looney Tunes/Merrie Melodies cartoons is their unpredictability. "Porky Pig's Feat" goes all the way, as Porky and Daffy come up with all sorts of elaborate schemes to try and escape from a hotel. You see, the effete manager has charged them for things like air (for breathing), while Daffy gambled away all the money. The whole thing escalates into full-scale war.

Aside from what Porky and Daffy do to the owner - and what he does back to them - the last segment was a surprise. Then again, movie studios and executives always like to advertise themselves (Porky mentions Leon Schlesinger). Overall, a really funny cartoon.

So, in conclusion, let's all help them get their "Feat" back on the ground (apologies to the Beatles).
