Storyline

World War I, apparently. There is a series of quick blackout gags, including a soldier that throws the pin, is blown sky-high by the grenade, and is caught in a net by an ambulance driver; one soldier's encounters with very smart bullets; a machine gunner with the jitters. Porky leads a charge, but with no support from his company, he runs back and dives under Beans' bunk. After a quick chorus of "You're in the Army Now," a messenger pigeon drops in with news that General Hardtack is being held prisoner. They dash off in a motorcycle/sidecar, chased by another smart bullet, and arrive in the nick of time to dispatch the general's captors. They fly off in a plane and get shot down to end up together in the hospital. Written by Jon Reeves <jreeves@imdb.com>

Ain't war fun, kids?!
24 September 2013 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

There is something a bit unsavory about this old Warner Brothers cartoon. While I have seen and enjoyed quite a few wartime cartoons, this one is different. Instead of focusing on life in boot camp, this one is set on the front lines during WWI. And, most importantly, it sure looks like a lot of fun. Who cares that 11,000,000 people lost their lives—it's all a giant laugh here! Perhaps I'm being overly sensitive, but I just cannot see trench warfare as a funny thing—crazy as that must sound.

So is this cartoon complete crap? No. While I hated the way the film made war look so gosh-darn fun, the animation was exceptional. Warner (Looney Tunes) was still using black & white stock when this was made in 1936 but the quality of the drawings and backgrounds is top-notch. And, while this incarnation of Porky Pig is the morbidly obese one with a strange voice, it is a quality cartoon. Bad in many ways, but still quality cartoon.
