Porky tackles alcoholism
8 August 2016 | by utgard14See all my reviews

Funny Porky short directed by Friz Freleng. The title is a pun on Calling Dr. Kildare; there's even a line at the start of the cartoon referencing it. In this one Porky is a doctor who gets more than he bargained for when a drunk comes in tormented by imaginary pink elephants. It's a wackier style of cartoon than I normally associate with Freleng but it's a fun one. Most of the humor comes from the drunk and the elephants. Porky's almost always the straight man in his shorts but here he's practically a background character. The animation is quite nice. Well-drawn characters and backgrounds. Lovely colors too. The music and voice work are also nice. It's not a hilarious cartoon but it's fun for what it is.
