Looney TV: The Case of the Stuttering Pig (1937)

Porky Pig is up to his neck in trouble, trying to protect Petunia and their brothers (yes, they're all family in this one) from a double-dealing legal weasel in "The Case of the Stuttering Pig". Note how "Uncle Solomon Swine" bears some resemblance to Oliver Hardy. Cheap shot, perhaps?

Good thing Petunia got a makeover in the intervening years. That's all I can say.

Rating: B-.

This is one of the few black & white LTs I actually enjoy. It really creeped me out as a kid. I try to watch it each year around Hallowe'en, but I didn't get around to it this year (I was a bit too busy). It's got a great spooky atmosphere, probably helped by the fact that it's B&W.

It's been colorized, as well, but I opted for the original black & white, because that's the version I'm familiar with, as everyone else is.
