Storyline

Porky's father is going to lose his farm. Porky goes to town with his horse and works a milk route, with a warning that if he breaks a bottle he's fired. As he's delivering, cats follow along behind draining the bottles. Meanwhile, Hank Horsefly follows them into town. He stings Dobbin, who crashes and breaks many bottles. They happen upon a horse race and accidentally enter; the horse is merely plodding along until it gets stung again. Porky wins the $10,000 race and drives home in a limo just in time.

Trivia

At the door of "MR. & MRS. D. ONNE AND FAMILY", Porky leaves three bottles of milk, saying "Mister, Missus, and family" as he sets them down, the last one having a quintuple baby nipple on it. This is a joke on the quintuplets born to a Canadian couple named Dionne who were in the news continually for years. See more »

About Everything You'd Want In A Cartoon!
12 November 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This was really, really enjoyable, with tons of good stuff all wrapped up in eight minutes. You get over-the-top characters and story, good humor and great artwork. In other words: about everything you want in a cartoon.

The characters are "Porky Pig," Porky's father, Porky's horse "Dobbin," "Hank Horsefly" and "Mr. Viper" (the snake). The latter is there to claim the mortgage on the pigs' house and farm if the old man doesn't fork over the cash by a certain time. This was a familiar theme in movies and cartoons - and a sad fact of life - in the 1930s. Anyway, you know things will turn out all right for Porky and his dad. It's HOW this happens this is funny. The material is outrageous, with a lot of things happening and Hank Horsefly plays the key role.

This is done beautifully in black-and-white and restored nicely by the Warner Brothers folks who have presented us, so far, with five volumes of Golden Collection DVDs. I haven't seen the fourth volume but this Fifth volume features some of these older black-and-white cartoons and some of them are great.
