| Dreaming of Wackyland
Bob Clampett, director of this cartoon, was one of the great cartoon directors that made Looney Tunes and Merrie Melodies so great. His greatest strength was his ability to take images and ideas and stretch them endlessly and his great masterpiece, PORKY IN WACKYLAND is the great exemplar of that.

But here, in this short where Porky dreams of being an ancient Greek hero who fights the gorgon, we see that same sensibility. This is a riotous cartoon, full of puns both verbal and visual, and wild images. This would be, I feel, a great cartoon, except for one small flaw: it is all couched as a dream. But even with that, it is still excellent and a rarely seen cartoon. If you have a chance, don't miss it.
