"Sports Blab!"

Sports Blab is a webtoon duology from Looney Tunes that stars Porky Pig and Tweety Bird. It is a parody of sports newscasting, with Porky and Tweety giving viewers all of the day's sports news in three minutes.


Contains examples of:

  • Anvil on Head: Those who don't succeed in Anvil Catch get this on their head. Even Porky got it by the end of the first cartoon.
  • Call-Back: Taz does Shakespeare again.
  • Never Say Drown: For the Seabiscuit swimming race, it would have been a photo finished but the cameraman "dr-dr- couldn't swim".
  • Shout-Out:
  • That's All, Folks!: Porky was about to say it at the end of the second cartoon, but got cut off from all the thrown tomatoes at him (see a below example).
  • Visual Pun: There are tons of them in the second cartoon.

    • Porky takes a look at the Diamond. An actual diamond, not a baseball diamond.
    Tweety: Aww, how pweety.
    • Taz does a triple play by acting in three plays. When there's a flag on the play, Taz gets hit by a flagpole (carrying a pirate flag) while doing Shakespeare.
    • Foghorn Leghorn gets clotheslined in the last seconds of a football game. As in he's left hanging from a clothing line.
    • Elmer Fudd does a hat trick by pulling Bugs Bunny out of his hat. When he later gets called for icing, Elmer is in a block of ice that falls onto Yosemite Sam.
    • The B-Ball is a game of basketball but where a hive has replaced the basketball.
    • The Sheboygan Bratwursts were given an actual technical foul from Daffy Duck (along with a disclaimer from management that the "writer" behind the "joke" didn't work for them anymore).
    • The Badmitten champ is Pepe Le Pew, who ironically is disgusted by the smell of the bad mitten.

    • Last but not least, there is a Drag Racing final which has Sylvester, Taz, Daffy and Yosemite Sam in drag outfits at a starting line. Instead, Sam leads the other toons to rebel against Porky and Tweety because he believed the pair were making all of the news up.
