Plane Dippy
12 September 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

An early Porky short, and for years the oldest produced shown in one of the post-theatrical release television packages, this has Porky the faithful military hero, going to an inventor, who's a chimpanzee who tries out Porky on the plane that the inventor has been tinkering on, only to leave the plane with Porky and in the control of the innocent little children, Little Kitty (by the way, voiced by Bernice Hansen, NOT Rochelle Hudson) and her "human" doggy friend, based on the earlier Oliver Owl character, and HIS "REAL" (go figure :)) dog (the first two being had debuted with Porky in 1935's "I Haven't Got a Hat"). (The inventor's placed his command mike on the window stnad.) what happens is the plane, reacting to the children's orders to the one kid's dog, scoops up Porky. Anything else will be top secret like the plane was.

I'm glad that Billy Bletcher WAS identified as the Sarge (My copy of historian Graham Webb's 2000 book on these old shorts actually DOES give unnamed voices, but HE only mentions Ms.Hansen, a major mystery, who was NOT Dorothy Varden who was a similar performer) and Joe Dougherty, then the voice of Porky Pig, but I doubt that, that simian inventor (yeah, "Grease Monkey", I get it, folks!) is Bletcher.. Very Unique voice.."Here.. TRY it!" This was the first "Starring" role for Porky Pig, even though he'd done cartoons before as mentioned above and even had in the Beans the Cat entry "Golddiggers of '49", then just recently out, also a PROMINENT role.
