Porky's in the foreign legion. But he's not allowed to fight; all he can do is scrub camels, and he's not particularly good at that. The other soldiers ride off to find the evil Ali Mode, leaving Porky behind. Ali Mode notices, and tries to gain entrance to the fort, first by tricking Porky, then by tunnelling, then by military assaults, but Porky rebuffs all attempts, ultimately landing Ali Mode in a big vat of "Cairo Syrup" and collecting a chestful of medals.

Not among Porky's but still hugely enjoyable
3 November 2013 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Porky is not one of WB/Looney Tunes' strongest or funniest characters and his effectiveness as a lead character has been a mixed bag but he is likable and works very well as a support character with other stronger personalities. Here he takes on a lead role, and is quite funny and endearing. And Little Beau Porky has a huge amount to enjoy, Frank Tashlin was a great if underrated animation director and you can see that clearly. It does have a couple of drawbacks, the pacing is not always consistent with a build up that sets things up a little too slowly and a slightly rushed ending and somehow it does feel odd without the presence of Mel Blanc, Joe Dougherty tries his best as Porky but his stutter has always been overdone to me. The Arab stereotyping will go either way too, I personally wasn't offended but others might. The animation is fluid, well drawn and shaded/coloured with care. The camera angles are very clever and are the prime reason why Tashlin is deserving of more recognition. Carl Stalling's music score is lush and full of character, accentuating every gag and character gesture, and the dialogue even early on has freshness and sharpness. The gags come thick and fast at a wild pace, there are a healthy amount and all of them are funny, the best particularly with the camel uproarious. The pacing is generally solid, and the story while a tad predictable entertains, while the supporting characters compliment Porky well(especially Ali Mode). Billy Bletcher provides witty vocals. All in all, hugely enjoyable though Porky has done better. 8/10 Bethany Cox
