One dark and stormy night, Porky, Petunia and their brothers learn from Lawyer Goodwill that they inherit a fortune from their late Uncle Solomon. But if something happens to the siblings, the fortune goes to the lawyer who assures them that nothing does and then adjourns to the basement. He walks into a secret laboratory, drinks a bottle of Jekyll and Hyde potion, and turns into a hideous monster. After he warns the audience that they cannot stop him, he has everyone except Porky and Petunia, but that guy in the third row exacts revenge and means business.Written by

This cartoon was colorized in 1968 by having every other frame traced over onto a cel. Each redrawn cel was painted in color and then photographed over a colored reproduction of each original background. Needless to say, the animation quality dropped considerably from the original version with this method. The cartoon was colorized again in 1995, this time with a computer adding color to a new print of the original black and white cartoon. This preserved the quality of the original animation.

My goodness, isn't that final line hilarious or what? I thoroughly enjoyed this early Porky Pig cartoon. It isn't my absolute favourite, but it is a lot of fun and pretty much perfect for Halloween especially. The animation is wonderful, the black and white really does add to the atmosphere much more so than the colourised version, and the music is also great, haunting, beautiful and sometimes tongue-in-cheek. The story is effective, and zips along quickly thanks to the fun gags, fast pace and the terrific dialogue. As much as I loved Porky and his siblings here, the best character was the Dr.Hyde-type villain Lawyer Goodwill who had the best lines(with the exception of the end line) and was animated really convincingly. Mel Blanc and Billy Bletcher both do brilliantly with the voices. Overall, great fun, well worth watching. 9/10 Bethany Cox
