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 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.

I laughed...but the violence!
2 June 2007 | by preppy-3See all my reviews

This is black and white. Porky decides to go on a picnic in the city park with his girlfriend Petunia. They leave Petunia's little brother (Pinky) asleep. But he wakes up and follows them and produces considerable mayhem.

The animation is just great, the sight gags are inventive and this moves like lightning...but (even for a cartoon) this was a bit violent. Porky was battered quite a few time with a wooden board and Pinky goes after a squirrel with a pair of scissors! I don't think this would bother kids at all but, as an adult, I found it quite violent. Still, lots of fun.
