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>

Oddball but fun, while not one of Porky's best
20 November 2012 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I love the Looney Tunes cartoons(well a vast majority of them anyway), and while he is not one of my favourites I do like Porky Pig. Porky in Egypt is not one of the best, as the first two minutes or so are rather standard with not much that is funny and the story doesn't really go anywhere, but it is fun. It does have an oddball nature, which people may love and others may find themselves perplexed, for me there were times throughout where I was one or the other. This said, the animation is great with the black and white looking beautiful and everything looks fluid, I especially liked what was done with Humpty Bumpty's nightmarish vision. The music has some authentic flavour while having the manic characterful energy often distinctive in Looney Tunes. The humour has Bob Clampett written all over it, and it all feels fresh and witty with the gags cleverly timed. Porky is endearing here if a little bland compared to Humpty Bumpty the camel, who bags all the best moments that help to make him one of the best supporting characters of any of Porky's cartoons. Mel Blanc is excellent as always in his vocal characterisations. Overall, not one of Porky's best, but fun especially for Humpty Bumpty. 7/10 Bethany Cox
