| Animated crime drama with Porky Pig
Love animation, it was a big part of my life as a child, particularly Disney, Looney Tunes and Tom and Jerry, and still love it whether it's film, television or cartoons.

'Porky's Double Trouble' is a very different cartoon for Frank Tashlin, Porky Pig and Looney Tunes in general. Due to it being more dramatic and film-noir-like than the usual norm and focusing far less on the comedy, this is definitely more serious than funny. People may not like this change of pace, but while it is hard not to miss the humour 'Porky's Double Trouble' handles this change of pace really well and it's pretty fascinating.

Didn't think that Petunia was anywhere near as interesting as Porky and the villain or the dynamic between those two characters and the ending is a bit strange.

However, the voice acting is solid with Mel Blanc showing as ever why he was the infinitely more preferable voice for Porky and his multifaceted talents as a voice actor. Sara Berner also fares well.

Animation is excellent and has that crime drama atmosphere. It's fluid in movement, crisp in shading and very meticulous in detail.

Carl Stalling's music score as always is outstanding. It is as always lushly orchestrated, full of lively energy and characterful in rhythm, not only adding to the action but also enhancing it.

The cartoon's more dramatic tone is executed in a way that's taut, suspenseful and full of tension and energy. Porky as ever is endearing and the villain injects a lot of menace.

Overall, very good indeed even though a change of pace. 8/10 Bethany Cox
