Alternate Versions

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 1992, 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.

I like the remake better
3 July 2017 | by bugsspongeSee all my reviews

Clampett made some good cartoons and I like his style of directing. However, in 1937, he didn't develop that style that he would be known for. Porky in Wackyland was probably one of the first black and white shorts I actually liked. I'm not a fan of the BW cartoons up until 1940, but I give Bob some credit for his first few toons. Personally, I like the color Merrie Melodies better than the BW Looney Tunes. Gabby Goat just wasn't funny enough for primetime, thankfully they got rid of him. The remake has Daffy instead and when he shoots the moon, I laugh.
