Bluebeard - The Mouse - Is The Best Character
7 June 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This is one of those cartoons which is much funnier seen than described. It's the little things, the sight gags of the little mouse's face and grin, Porky's reaction to bad things, and a bunch of other details that would make this review too long to describe.

Suffice to say it begins with Porky Pig against "that unsanitary rodent, that lowdown thief" - the mouse - who tries to steal food off of Porky's table in the opening scene, but winds up with Porky up against a 6-feet, 11-inch, 350-pound giant.

While the pig is muttering to himself, the radio says, "Stop! We interrupt this program with a special news bulletin. Bluebeard the killer is at large. Use every precaution to protect yourself."

Back before television, many people had their radios on all day to entertain them with music, humor, sports and all the news bulletins of the day.

Anyway, Porky is petrified. Suddenly he hears a nasty laugh and sees a shadow on the wall of a pirate and big knife. It's only the mouse dressed up as a pirate! Nonetheless, Porky is so dumb he thinks it is the pirate so he feeds him anything he wants....until the radio comes back with a height and weight description of the real Bluebeard, who happens to be under Porky's table. Mayhem ensues!

The best of the three characters is the little mouse, who is one clever little dude. He winds up coming to Porky's rescue in a neat twist. He, and the whole cartoon, can be seen on the Looney Tunes Golden Collection Volume Three.
