| how far north, I wonder
When animal refuge owner Porky Pig sets up signs prohibiting hunting, trapping, fishing - in fact, pretty much everything - a hunter naturally decides to engage in all these illegal activities. So, Porky has to free his animal friends, and thereby incurs the hunter's wrath. But when the animals see the hunter abusing Porky...well, were Bugs Bunny present, he would affirm just one thing: Of course you realize this means war! And brother, let me tell you: not even in any of the grade-Z horror movies about nature's vengeance do you get to see any of what you see here! They don't identify where specifically "Porky in the North Woods" takes place, although I presume that it's in northern Canada. If so, then it corroborates every good thing that Michael Moore says about our northern neighbor.

But anyway, this is a pretty neat cartoon. Obviously, it was an early one, so we shouldn't expect any of the really crazy stuff that became the cornerstone of the Looney Tunes/Merrie Melodies cartoons of the '40s and '50s. But it's still an OK one.
