Storyline

Porky and some of his fellow sailors are on shore leave in a bar. A pirate captain discovers that his own crew has jumped ship and forces everyone in the bar to become his crew. The captain treats the crew badly, particularly denying them food (eating the meat off bones, then passing them only the bones). The crew mutinies after a week; the captain tries to fend them off with a cannon, but ends up sending himself into the explosives stores. They explode, and the captain ends up towing the crew on a raft. Written by Jon Reeves <jreeves@imdb.com>

mutiny on the Porky
26 July 2007 | by (Portland, Oregon, USA) – See all my reviews

The early, morbidly obese Porky Pig had only existed for a little over a year (and Mel Blanc was not yet providing his voice) when he appeared in "Shanghaied Shipmates". The cartoon portrays a sadistic captain kidnapping Porky and several other sailors to use as his crew. The whole voyage is practically a torture chamber. Sure enough, they eventually rebel.

Knowing that this came out the year after "Mutiny on the Bounty" got released, I wonder whether or not the latter gave them the idea to make it. Since they were still getting started, we should understand not to expect any of the completely wacky stuff that became their cornerstone during the '40s and '50s.

Anyway, it's an OK cartoon. Warner Bros. returned to this topic with the Bugs Bunny-Yosemite Sam vehicle "Mutiny on the Bunny". Worth seeing, if only once. Available on YouTube.
