The mouse that robs the trap Porky sets out quotes Baby Snooks' line, "I'm only three and a half years old". However, as house mice are adults at an age of fifty days and have a lifespan of two to three years, a three and a half year old mouse would be a geriatric case. See more »

"A Real Cat's Meow Of A Movie, Great Singing Porky!"
31 December 2004 | by (USA) – See all my reviews

"Warner Brothers where are you"...with the DVD or VHS for the short? I whole-heartedly agree with Mr. Litman's comments. This is truly one of 'The Best' movie shorts in history (my opinion only). The singing of "On Moonlight Bay" is absolutely SUPERB. Mel Blanc, as well as the rest of his family, should be very proud of this particular body of work. Even though I've only seen it twice in my life-time, unfortunately The Cartoon Channel doesn't show it that much any more, the memory is always the same. I wish I knew what was taking Warner Brothers s-o-o very long to put this movie on tape. Perhaps they feel it will not 'draw' as many customers for purchase as the more updated movies. I don't believe this for a moment. I'd be the first one of line to purchase it as soon as it's distributed. Maybe we should start a petition for the movies we "really" want to see on DVD or VHS? That'd really give the studios something to thing about, huh? Maybe.
