Title: Porky The Giant Killer (technically in double quotes)
Studio: Warner Bros.
Ben Hardaway & Cal Dalton
Carl W. Stalling
Series: Looney Tunes
Running time (of viewed version): 8:13
Synopsis: Porky is more of a giant home invader (tho he has a stick for beating with him), and baby sitter/musician.
Comments: Interesting bendy angles on the low shot of the giant castle under the title. And it panned down as I expected it to. This makes for an external establishing shot. The doors of the castle open onto text, which the camera pushes in on. All in keeping with the zeitgeist. Porky looks funny (not in the good way); possibly more in keeping with the She Married a Cop look. Dog men in armor, and otherwise on the march. Pegleg Pete voice on the giant. The main giant in this is a baby, which makes Porky a baby killer. Fair amount of shading in this. The giant lives in a castle of more or less normal proportions. An example where Porky doesn't get ditched. I think the knight sticking his head out of his helmet has been used earlier this year. Lots of nice angles in this. Like Fagin, the giant is a good bad guy. Lots of white shock sweat coming off of Porky. The eyelids look good; it's not just being lower tho, it's the shiny look they have.
Edit 10/27/11: Sogturtle remains unbeatable. Nevertheless, we have pictures of a cel from this from an eBay auction. For color commentary, we have the following "I am selling this for a friend whose Grandfather had this hanging in his Upstate NY bar for many, many years." So there you go.
