Trivia

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 »

Average cartoon, but the visuals are pretty funny.
21 December 2003 | by (Karachi, Pakistan) – See all my reviews

Trap Happy Porky is nothing above the average Looney Tunes cartoon of the mid-40's, but it's always good to watch.

The story is good in the beginning, but after the cat goes wrong, it's simply too predictable. Everything you expect happens.

The animation is good, but Porky is rather weird when he sleeps. But the drunk singing is hilarious. You watch it and you burst out laughing.

My favorite part, though, is the start, when the mice are flawlessly dispatched by one of those great running jokes. I wonder why those elaborate traps became so rare post-1948. They really were riots.

For once Hubie and Bertie lose. I can't say I was too happy to see Jones betraying his own characters. But they barely have a part to play.

So, if you like Looney Tunes, this cartoon should be good news when it comes on, but it's really nothing above the average cartoon of the day.
