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.

Did You Know?


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 »

oily schemes
5 August 2008 | by (Portland, Oregon, USA) – See all my reviews

As I understand it, Gabby the Goat appeared in only three or four short cartoons in the late '30s, before they discontinued him, considering him a less than likable character. Bob Clampett's "Get Rich Quick Porky" is one of the cartoons showcasing Gabby. This one has Porky Pig and Gabby buying a phony oil field.

It was really in the early '40s when Clampett's work took shape. A few of his cartoons in the '30s showed off his penchant for the surreal (namely "Porky in Wackyland"), but his WWII-era work truly demonstrated the qualities most associated with his animation. I guess that the reason that this cartoon makes so much sense nowadays is the theme of oil: look at how much of US policy centers on that stuff.

Anyway, this one's worth seeing maybe once.
