| Believe it or not, I see a connection to "The King of Hearts", "One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest" and "House of Fools".
Wise-guy canine Charlie Dog tells fellow hound Rags McMutt the story of how he kept trying to get Porky Pig to adopt him. Obviously, the cartoon's main premise rests on Charlie's wacky tricks, but I notice something else. After everything, Rags has doubts about life outside the pound from which he earlier escaped. Maybe "Little Orphan Airedale" is reminding us that the real insanity isn't necessarily inside the asylum (or equivalent thereof). The feature films "The King of Hearts", "One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest" and "House of Fools" also looked at this point.

Maybe I'm the only person who sees that. Taking the cartoon at face value, it's a pretty fun romp, as were all Looney Tunes cartoons from back then. It'll certainly please you.
