The Bioscope (31/Dec/1914):

Peppering His Own Porridge. — A good and well-performed “Winky” number, with just the right amount of broad fun. He gets an old Colonial to impersonate bis wife’s uncle, and the old fellow seizes the opportunity to run up a bill which staggers Winky. The cure is effectual, and its victim decides that bogus relatives are a dangerous experiment. (February 4th. 630 ft.)

Kinematograph Weekly (31/Dec/1914):

Peppering his own Porridge (C). — (Bamforth). — Winky gets a down-at-heel Colonial to impersonate his wife’s uncle, but the joke recoils on himself. Released Feb. 4th, length 630 ft.
