"Watch me make like rigor mortis."
26 August 2016 | by utgard14See all my reviews

Fun Porky Pig short from Chuck Jones that's basically a reworking of Bob Clampett's Porky's Pooch short from 1941. The story's about a dog named Rags escaping from the pound and meeting up with another dog, who brags to Rags about how he met his master (Porky). We flashback to the dog's meeting with Porky and in the end there's a cute twist. Love the animation. Everything is well drawn and the colors are lovely. Great voice work from Mel Blanc, as usual. Carl Stalling's music is quite nice. A fun cartoon even if it's not going to be on anybody's "best of" lists for Porky or Jones. It's a pleasant way to pass a few minutes. If you're an animation buff watch it after the Clampett original and compare.
