Aw, shucks
19 October 2004 | by (The Penumbra) – See all my reviews

Honestly, who in their right mind would turn down Charlie Dog? He's so cute and lovable. And his desperation to be loved as much as he loves back just makes him even cuter. I would love to Charlie Dog as my pet. Why does Porky Pig feel such a strong resentment towards him? You guess is as good as mine.

After Charlie stowaways in a bird cage to infiltrate Porky's apartment this get out of control. The usual game of cat and mouse (or dog and pig) follows as Charlie takes to increasingly insane measures to prove to Porky that he's a loyal and trustworthy pet, far better than any bird. Unfortunately it doesn't work out in the end.

But Charlie, I'll have you any time you want.
