How was Winston Churchill as a baby?
14 September 2006 | by (Portland, Oregon, USA) – See all my reviews

This time, Porky Pig has to baby-sit a bad-ass infant named Butch, while the baby's mother goes to work in the factory, a la Rosie the Riveter. Obviously, the wartime stuff is probably going to make us cringe a little nowadays, particularly since the mother uses a derogatory word for the Japanese.

But otherwise, it's really funny to see how the baby tortures Porky, and even goes so far as to imitate Winston Churchill in one scene. So even if it's not the greatest cartoon ever, "Brother Brat" is still pretty funny. Worth seeing.

And yes, use a book. In fact, stop reading this review and read a book.
