The Timid Toreador is a 1940 Porky Pig cartoon directed by Robert Clampett and Norm McCabe. In this gem Porky is a tamales vendor working near a Mexican Bullfight who finds himself in the ring being chased by a bull. Things aren’t looking good for Pork until the bull gets a taste of those spicy tamales.
I remember watching this gem as a kid in both its colorized and B&W version. I very much preferred the B&W version, so that is what I am presenting below.
