The Film Fan is a 1939 Looney Tunes short starring Porky Pig.

Plot

While on his way to the grocery store to pick up groceries for his mother, Porky stops by a sign that says that the local movie theater is "Having a kids admitted free day". Porky excitedly runs in and views various spoofs of things such as Newsreels, movie trailers, films, and also the Lone Ranger. But when the usher discovers that a boy disobeyed his mother by coming to the movies (namely Porky), everybody dashes out, causing the theater to deflate.

Availability

Censorship

  • The redrawn colorized version of this cartoon that aired on Nickelodeon was missing the brief scene of the on-screen news commentator identifying himself as Cold Promise.[1]

Notes

  • The short was remade and inspired from the Merrie Melodies short "She Was an Acrobat's Daughter", with the similar premise of a character at a news movie theater finding the right spot to get a good view of the picture; some scenes from that cartoon were rotoscoped.
