Storyline

Porky is a tourist. He's missed the main camel, so he rents one of his own. Both of them are soon overcome by the hot desert sun; the camel starts hallucinating, and marches off, playing the bagpipes. Porky sees the camel swimming in a pool, but it turns out to be a mirage. The camel eventually recovers enough to bring both of them back to town, where Porky goes mad. Written by Jon Reeves <jreeves@imdb.com>

Absurd Humor, And The Camel Steals The Show
23 May 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Believe it or not, you still see this kind of shock-humor today, and you probably always will. This cartoon isn't some old-fashioned slam on Egyptians or their beliefs or way of life - it's just far-out absurd humor. For instance, in the very first scene we see a couple of the locals, dressed in Mid-East garb, waking up, beginning to chant and then - wham! - someone breaks out a pair of dice and a guy yells, "Come on, seven. Baby needs a new pair of shoes!" You see - absurd humor....and it IS funny. To emphasize that point, the very next scene has a veiled, what-looks-like, sexy woman with a great body passing by, the guys whistle....until she lifts the veil and we see a toothless old hag! A short time later, we see a long camel that can seat 10 people. Some of the humor is stupid or dated to the point where we miss it, but some are clever.

Anyway, Porky Pig is there and he misses the long camel ride, hitches one of his own and begins a trek in the desert. Then, this settles into a short story of "desert madness" when the brutal sun (and I mean "brutal) knocks Porky's camel for a loop.

At that point, this cartoon gets hilarious. Porky's camel (named "Humpty Bumpty") is delirious, hysterical and then thinks he's saved and begins playing bagpipes, doing an Irish dance, etc. - very, very funny stuff. Humptey is, by far, the funniest camel I've ever seen in a cartoon.
