Porky Pig is a martial arts instructor, Wile E. Coyote buys sound-proof earmuffs after being tired of beeping; Bugs and Daffy compete in a Looney Tunes parody of the popular cooking show, “The Iron Chef.” This was fun. I hadn’t read a Looney Tunes comic in a while, but I thoroughly enjoyed it. I particularly enjoyed the first story, as I am a martial artist myself. Plus, the story ends with an appearance from one of my favorite Looney Tunes, Taz. I liked the clever title: “Pork Chop”.
The second story in Looney Tunes #265 features another rivalry between Wile E. Coyote and the Road Runner, with Wile being fed up with the constant beeping, so he buys a pair of soundproof earmuffs. I can relate, as I have a pair myself. In typical Looney Tunes fashion, rather than take a break from stalking his prey, Wile E. Coyote continues to go after him while wearing the earmuffs. It is surprising to see Wile E. Coyote briefly speaking, as he is usually mute in cartoons where he chases the Road Runner.
The final story in Looney Tunes #265 shows Bugs and Daffy in a cooking competition with Sylvester as the host, Tweety as the chairman, and Granny, Porky Pig, and goofy gophers Mac & Tosh as judges. Daffy tries to sabotage Bugs’ dishes and ends up making it worse for himself.
I enjoyed the humor of Looney Tunes #265, like Granny using her age to her advantage to fool Yosemite Sam, and the judges complaining about Daffy’s cooking. Plus, the artwork was pretty standard in what you would expect in a typical Looney Tunes comic.
This is a fun comic for all ages. Looney Tunes fans who like martial arts, the Iron Chef, and stories featuring characters like Porky Pig, Bugs Bunny, Tweety, Sylvester, Daffy Duck, Taz, Wile E. Coyote, and the Road Runner will really enjoy it.
