Concept: 2/4 (Indifferent)
Story: 1/4 (Bad)
Characters: 3/4 (Good)
Dialog: 2/4 (Indifferent)
Pacing: 3/4 (Good)
Cinematography: 2/4 (Indifferent)
Special effects/design: 3/4 (Good)
Acting: 3/4 (Good)
Music: 4/4 (Great)
Subjective Rating: 7/10 (Good, 3/4). Always amusing, but uneven. Once it finally gets to the part with Porky and Daffy, it's loads of fun. Unfortunately, the first third or so of the cartoon consists of set-up and a few less-than-amazing gags.
Objective Rating (Average): 2.6/4 (Good)
