Storyline

It is Groundhog Day so, naturally, Porky Pig goes hunting groundhogs and takes his dopey dog, Mandrake. They soon encounter Grover Groundhog, who is none too thrilled to be the objective of a hunter on his big day. Mandarke is good at what he does but Mandrake is also a sucker for a sob story and Grover outwits him at every turn. Written by Les Adams <longhorn1939@suddenlink.net>

Like Bugs cartoons but with different characters
15 November 2003 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

It's Groundhog Day and Grover Groundhog is preparing in his home for his big appearance in front of the cameras. However when he emerges he is turned on by hunters due to the meat shortage. Porky Pig and his hound dog go out to hunt the groundhog down and cook him up. However the groundhog proves to be a more difficult (and manipulative) prey that they first thought.

A little slow to start, this cartoon soon becomes a little like the usual Bugs/Elmer cartoons but with the groundhog playing Bugs and Porky playing Elmer's character. Keeping the same sense of humour (e.g. the groundhog outsmarting the hunters) the cartoon works out pretty good and is quite funny at turns.

Porky is an OK character and the groundhog is a good despite being a little too cute for it's own good. The downside of this is that I couldn't help but compare him to Bugs, a comparison that will leave even a strong character standing in the shadows. Of the three, the dog is pretty good and he covers for the weaknesses in Porky.

Overall this is a good little short that takes the usual Bugs jokes and puts them onto new characters. Despite a little bit of a faltering start with the groundhog singing the short is a mix of witty game playing.
