A dated curio lifted by Clampett's energetic direction
1 October 2008 | by (Lincoln, England) – See all my reviews

Bob Clampett's 'Baby Bottleneck' is a satire on the post-war baby boom in which Porky Pig and Daffy Duck run a factory to assist with the preparation and delivery of new born babies. This entails an automated production line which dresses, burps, feeds and dispatches the young animals. For the most part, 'Baby Bottleneck' is a spot gag cartoon with Porky and Daffy simply pulling levers and answering phones. They only get to really do anything towards the end of the cartoon when they get into a war over an unhatched egg. Often when he was assigned spot-gag cartoons, Clampett's wild on-screen energy would be dulled but 'Baby Bottleneck' is an exception and Clampett manages to infuse the quickfire gags with a pulsating vitality. Unfortunately, 'Baby Bottleneck' is full to the brim with long forgotten references which inescapably dates the cartoon and makes it more of a curio than a laugh riot to modern day audiences. There are, however, a couple of typically risqué Clampett gags. Especially conspicuous is a joke with a baby alligator trying to suckle a mother pig. When she finally turns to the alligator the cartoon quickly cuts away before she has chance to speak. The cut line was apparently "Ah-ah-ah, don't touch that dial"!
