Another Fun Porky Short
25 September 2017 | by Michael_ElliottSee all my reviews

Picador Porky (1937)

*** (out of 4)

Porky finds himself in a Mexican town where top dollars will be given to the person who can last inside the ring with a deadly bull. Porky puts a couple friends inside a bull costume but as you'd expect the real thing gets in the ring.

PICADOR PORKY is another winning short and one that is quite creative with its images and contains some nice laughs. Director Tex Avery brings his wild and fast style to the picture and we get some wonderful site gags including one dealing with Porky running with fear out of the arena and only returning to do a nice gesture. Another fine moment is when the two are treated as if they are boxers inside the ring. As you'd expect the animation itself is quite good throughout so fans of the series should enjoy this.
