Trivia

While Porky Pig looks over characters and judges their talents, an unnamed wolf wants to be first, But Porky Pig's rules are strict and he tells the wolf to wait for when his time comes. When the unnamed wolf's time occurs, he commits suicide, and Porky Pig gives him first place. A similar suicidal scene is featured in the closing scene of Show Biz Bugs (1957), but this time by Daffy Duck. See more »

Absolutely great
23 December 2012 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Maybe not one of my favourites of all time, but still a cartoon that I enjoy enormously. True, the story is structurally episodic, but considering the whole idea that to me was inevitable really. Besides, the story is still well-paced and entertaining. I would also understand if anybody considered Porky as a bland character, there are definitely much stronger Looney Tunes characters including Bugs, Sylvester and especially Daffy. But there have been cartoons of his where he has been a surprisingly decent lead, and with his grouchy comments on the auditions or having to see them this is one such case. The spoofs are a lot of fun as well. The humour is what makes Curtain Razor, everything is razor sharp(intended pun here) with dialogue, gags and references really freshly and wittily done. I am in agreement that it is the sort of humour that may go over the heads of kids, though even they will find some amusement, but adults will find much pleasure spotting them. The animation shows a lot of fluidity and beautiful use of colour, while the music is lushly orchestrated and jaunty in its energy. Mel Blanc's vocals are superb as always. Overall, an absolutely great cartoon in my opinion. 10/10 Bethany Cox
