Porky’s Phoney Express Review
Porky’s Phoney Express is a 1938 animated short film from the Looney Tunes series. It is quite solid.
This entry is worth remembering for finally giving Porky a good, great even ending as most entries by now had him suffer in the end. That was awesome and the poor guy deserved it. I loved how he eventually became the boss and bossed everyone around and that entire final scene is fantastic.
But the rest of the cartoon wasn’t that great. It had too many cooks in the kitchen from the boss to the delivery to the Indians. All were underutilized except for the boss who really was memorable with his constant yelling at Porky Pig. The entire film is very rushed in pacing and execution and not particularly memorable in animation or score.
Porky’s Phoney Express is technically weak and very rushed, but with a great finale where Porky finally got a happy ending.
