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.
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.
