Looney TV: Dumb Patrol (1964)

Boomerang has put Looney Tunes back on the schedule, with a 1 hour block weeknights at 7 (ET). Tonight's set closed with 1964's "Dumb Patrol", starring Bugs Bunny & Yosemite Sam, with a silent, brief cameo by Porky Pig.

The plot: In World War I, Smedley (Porky) draws the assignment of going into a dogfight with the Baron Sam von Spam. However, fearing for his friend's family, Bugs takes Smedley's place. Some of the gags are recycled from past Sam vs. Bugs encounters, as any fan can tell. If I'm not mistaken, this may also be a remake of a 1931 short by the same name, which starred Bosko.

Now, let's take to the skies!:
