Very exciting and well worth a view
21 December 2008 | by (Scotland) – See all my reviews

I have not watched all that many Looney Tunes cartoons where Porky is the main character (and he is accompanied by side characters), but I am starting to thoroughly enjoy them. Why more cartoons with Porky in the spotlight were not made is something that I cannot really understand, but in a way I guess that makes it all the more exciting to watch these kind of cartoons (ones where Porky is the main character). Here he is in Ireland(!) and is on his way to Dublin, when he realizes that it is: a) Late at night and b) That the rain is coming down in obvious torrents. Porky makes up his mind to stay in the "quaint little castle at the top of the hill" (yeah right) and makes his way up to ask for lodging. On the way he reads the sign "Beware of Leprechauns." If only Porky pays attention to the warning more carefully...

I very much enjoyed this cartoon for the Irish theme (I am partly Irish and anything with an Irish theme tends to excite me), which works very well. I also liked the leprechauns, who are mean characters but very likable. The other things I enjoyed about this cartoon was the randomness, the animation and the character of Porky. One of the reviewers here, magicunicorn, says this cartoon is not very exciting. I think his brain was not working properly. This is anything BUT not exciting. It's very exciting. :-)

I recommend this to people who like exciting cartoons (unless you find very odd stuff exciting), Ireland, Porky Pig and wacky cartoons. Enjoy "Wearing of the Grin"! :-)

8 and a half out of ten.
