Boom Boom

warner bros, looney tunes, merrie melodies, porky pig, Bugs Bunny, daffy duck

An early Porky war cartoon, with Porky as a doughboy in World War I. This one also has Beans, an early character who was in a few shorts, but didn't pan out as well as they probably wanted him to at Termite Terrace. Decent cartoon, moves fairly fast with very good animation.
