The copy of Timid Toreador that I own is in color, which I think was done in 1992. I would very much like to see the BW version because I think that everything should be seen in it's original state. But enough of that. Timid Toreador is, in my mind, a classic. It has some recurring Loony Tunes Jokes like refrences to The Brown Derby restaurant and waepons that suddenly go flacid at the site of danger. This gag can also be seen in another Porky Pig classic, Ali-Baba bound. Although Timid Toreador is no where near politically correct, I don't care. One can't help but laugh at the silly expressions that the singers at the begining of the cartoon wear. In classic Loony Tunes form, the viewer feels like he or she has been transported while watching the cartoon. At the begining we have an introduction scene that quite nicely sets up the scene. It is followed by a narrowing of the enviroment accomplished with an ad for a bull fight. Now that the audience has experienced the sights and sounds that he can expect, the hero is introduced. In walks Porky Pig, singing "Hot Tameles", a song that has stuck in my mind from youth when I watched Loony Tunes over and over again. Comedy ensues and at the end Porky is victorious. Overall, a good show from Clampett and crew.

This cartoon is on the same tape as my copy of The Timid Toreador. This one too has been colorized. Once again, our hero enters in classic form singing "She's the girlfreind of the whirling dervish..." He passes a "nasty spy" who gives him a secret message. This is accomplished through a gag that that still gets me and is one that I have yet to see repeated in another Loony Tunes cartoon. I won't tell you what it is, you'll just have to see for yourself. Anyway, "Tattle-Tale Nick" the spy tips Porky off that there is going to be an invasion of a remote desert stronghold by Ali-Baba and his 40 Sleaves. Porky waddles on down to rent "Baby Dumpling", a young camel, for the trip. The two make it two the fort. One thing that I'd like to say here is how much respect I have for the makers of this cartoon. For you see, the art of synchronizing action on the screen to music heard is perfect even this early in Loony Tunes history. As Baby Dumpling makes his way to the fort we hear a lively arabian tune with flute and drum that goes perfectly with his steps and the bobbing of Porky's headgear. At the fort, there are a series of gags there to make you laugh, but don't do much else. At this point, the cartoon looses it's course and suddenly Ali-Baba is in the fort about to stab Baby Dumpling. This sort of just happens seemingly because the animator has run out of gags and needs to end the cartoon. This happens frequently in many Loony Tunes cartoons that were created to just make fun of a region of the world. The show ends with a bang for lack of anyway better to end it. Overall, this cartoon is funny, but don't think too much about it like me. I've only recently started to do that after watching a cartoon for the 70th time or so.

When I was little I used to think that Yellowstone National Park was really called Jellystone National Park because of this cartoon. The animation in this production is top notch. I really like the scene where Elmer puts on his glasses and we are treated to a rare and relaxing shot of the sky, something hardly seen in a Loony Tunes show. The clouds are moving and the trees that tower to all sides are painted with great care. Then Bugs paints the glasses black and we see the same view, only darker like at night. This is equally relaxing, although short. I have often wanted to fall asleep looking at that same sky that Elmer fell asleep under. There is a bear and we are treated to a common joke in Loony Tunes about playing dead when confronted by a grizzley bear. The way the bear's nose glides over Elmer's body is funny to watch and his reaction is equally funny. The ending is good, too. Overall, the scenery is gorgeous and some of the stuff that Bugs does to Elmer is original, not seen in any other cartoon.
