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 <>

That's brawl, folks.
19 March 2010 | by (Portland, Oregon, USA) – See all my reviews

While most Warner Bros. cartoons featured animals, I assume that Robert McKimson's "One Meat Brawl" marked the only appearance by a groundhog. In this case, Grover Groundhog has to leave his den to see whether or not he has a shadow, and the hunters are waiting for him, sending him into hiding. Meanwhile, Porky Pig and his dog Mandrake (Barnyard Dawg from the Foghorn Leghorn cartoons) are hunting groundhogs, but Grover knows how to get Mandrake on his side. Are hunts always doomed to go like this?! I guess that we could be cynical and say that this cartoon is no different from the average Bugs Bunny-Elmer Fudd cartoon, but I think that as long as cartoons make us laugh, they're good. I recommend this one. After all, who doesn't like hand shadows?
