Fun short with great animation
22 September 2015 | by (USA) – See all my reviews

Radio reports of a killer on the loose named Bluebeard have Porky scared out of his wits. A mouse in Porky's home decides to use this to his advantage, donning a disguise and convincing Porky he's Bluebeard in order to get food. It works for a second but Porky quickly discovers the ruse. Then the real Bluebeard shows up...

Fun short from Arthur Davis with many amusing gags. Great voice work from Mel Blanc. The music is lively with a nice nod to the standard "Bye Bye Blackbird." Excellent animation with well-drawn characters, objects, and backgrounds. Lovely Technicolor is always a plus. There's a Tom & Jerry feeling to this one, perhaps because of the house setting and all the food, etc. Not to mention the mouse playing such a big part in the plot, which isn't common for a Porky short.
