p-p-p-Porky Pig: Rock Legend

Author: toon_dude from Auckland, New Zealand
24 April 2004

We see Porky Pig taking his teenage daughter (Peta Pig) to a rock concert. When he realises just how wild the concert is, he will stop at nothing to get inside.

This cartoon is very fast paced, especially for a Porky Cartoon and you can really see how he has stood the test of time. The cartoon has some good gags and even some funny theater jokes (the cartoon is a theater short but I caught it on DVD). Porky's voice is abit off and has hints of the new Woody Woodpecker, also voiced by West. The other Looney Tunes voices in this series of shorts have been very authentic but Porky still needs some work. Bob Bergen would be a good choice for future reference.

It was abit strange seeing Porky without that Darnfool, Daffy duck but It was good to see Porky was not toned down for his stuttering.

There is still hope yet for these new shorts. (Hopefully) Thats NOT all folks.

The main problem with this cartoon

Larry Doyle thought he could make the Looney Tunes funny again by hiring writers and animators from The Simpsons and Family Guy. Wow. He produced 6 Looney Tunes shorts after the Box Office failure of Looney Tunes: Back in Action. I've seen most of these shorts, and they are a huge letdown. This, in my opinion, is the worst of the half-dozen. The gags are stupid, poorly timed, pitiful animation (I wish Korean cartoonists didn't work cheap), and the usual hack job by Billy West. Now, WHY on earth they had West voice Porky in this cartoon is beyond me. Bob Bergen does an EXCELLENT job doing Porky. I know there was a behind-the-scenes falling out between Bergen, and some WB producers, but if they didn't want to use Bergen, than they should have gotten someone who sounds more like Mel Blanc. West doesn't even sound like Joe Doughtery! Honestly, why West accepts these voice jobs is beyond me. He bitched about how bad Eric Goldberg did Tweety and Marvin in the "Back and Action" and claimed that Goldberg needs to acknowledge his limitations. Okay, so why does't Billy do the same? He stinks at Bugs, Tweety, and Porky, so why doesn't he move aside and let Joe Alaskey and Bob Bergen voice these characters. I'll tell you why: MONEY. West only cares about the paycheck going in his pocket. He doesn't care about cartoon quality. He may say he's a Looney tunes fan, but in reality he is not. If he were, he'd admit that he CAN'T voice these characters correctly and shove off, and allow people who know what their doing to take on a professionals work.

Okay, with that aside, another problem I have with this cartoon is that it works in the awful stereotype that if a teenager goes to a rock concert that's wild and loud, than the concert is inappropriate, and the parent needs to get their kid outta there. This cartoon was clearly made by writers who are over-protective parents. Teens aren't like that. i wish they'd get that through their thick skulls. Okay, I'm done ranting.
