Storyline

Public Enemy #1 wants to wreak havoc again, but he is on the most wanted list in the newspaper. He then notices that there's somebody who looks similar to him: Porky Pig. He kidnaps Porky and disguises himself as the bank teller that Porky is and uses his position to steal. When the police find where Porky has been, and his love captured, Porky's love decides to go out with the criminal instead of him! Written by Russell Christiansen <russ@megsinet.net>

Warner Bros. animation meets the gangster world
2 September 2007 | by (Portland, Oregon, USA) – See all my reviews

With the rise of gangster movies in the '30s, it was inevitable that cartoons would spoof them. While the most famous examples involved Bugs Bunny making mincemeat of the most witless ruffians, there was also this somewhat perplexing story of Porky Pig having a run-in with porcine hoodlum Public Enemy #1.

In the cartoon, Public Enemy #1 (that sounds more like a rap star) escapes from jail and discovers that Porky Pig - employed by the Worst National Bank - resembles him exactly. So, while I could predict most of the sorts of things that were going to happen, then ending was a real surprise! I noticed that they backed off on humor for this cartoon and made it slightly more serious. Maybe since it was kind of a place-holder between the really great ones (1937 also saw the release of Daffy Duck's debut "Porky's Duck Hunt"), they decided not to spend excess energy on it. But no matter, I thought that it was worth seeing. Petunia Pig may not have starred in very many cartoons, but her few appearances were some neat ones. Of course, my favorite gangster-themed cartoons from Warner Bros. featured Bugs Bunny messing with the thugs.
