Storyline

Porky and Gabby are about to deposit their savings in the bank when a shyster sells them a lot that's full of oil because he planted it there. Meanwhile, a dog trying to bury a bone has lots more luck finding oil than Porky and Gabby until the shyster shuts off the oil-filled sprinklers. Meanwhile, Gabby hits oil for real.

Trivia

Months before "The Merry-Go-Round Broke Down" became the Looney Tunes theme song, the score for "Get Rich Quick Porky" quotes "Merry-Go-Round" the first time Gabby tries to use the jackhammer. This was the first time "Merry-Go-Round" was used in a Looney Tunes cartoon, having previously been used in Merrie Melodies' Sweet Sioux (1937). See more »

No thank you
20 May 2000 | by (Ardmore, PA) – See all my reviews

This is one of the reasons I don't like early Porky Pig cartoons. There is no real violence here, a standard in some shorts back then. I like Porky Pig but here he is not as funny as he would be in later shorts. The jokes are also not that funny either. So no thank you.
