Don't escape from seeing this (that is, no escape claws).
19 October 2006 | by (Portland, Oregon, USA) – See all my reviews

In one of the many classic Looney Tunes cartoons, Porky Pig and Sylvester spend the night in a desert town. The only thing is, this town appears to be haunted or something. So, Porky, completely clueless, goes about doing his business while a gaggle of nasty mice try to kill him. Sure enough, every time that Sylvester narrowly saves Porky, Porky believes him to be insane.

Some of the stuff in here might seem a little far out for a cartoon, especially in the '50s. But that's just why the Looney Tunes were so great: they weren't afraid to do whatever they wanted. You'd better believe that they were all about trashing the rules; and that's just what they do here. These cartoons were truly the gold standard of their era. Really funny.

So yes, do give me a home...
