Storyline

Porky, along with everyone else, is hitchhiking to the big wrestling match. He gets a ride from the challenger, but at the arena, Porky is mistaken for the challenger and gets thrown into the ring. The champ is making mincemeat of Porky when Porky crawls out and has the champ tying himself in knots, then swallowing a spectator's pipe and doing a steam locomotive impression. Written by Jon Reeves <jreeves@imdb.com>

Early Porky cartoon directed by Tex Avery
15 February 2002 | by (Tucson AZ) – See all my reviews

This cartoon features Porky, who is mistaken for a heavyweight wrestler. There are great sight gags in here (naturally-this is a Tex Avery) and some of the best come when everybody in the ring plays "choo-choo"! This short is a great deal of fun and is well worth hunting up. Originally black and white, it has also been colorized. I prefer the black and white-the colorizing on this one isn't as effective. Recommended.
