Storyline

Porky ventures into Darkest Africa in search of the last Do-Do bird, and winds up in Wackyland, a surreal place where the sun comes up atop a human pyramid, the Warner Brothers shield comes zooming from the sky, and populated by creatures such as a three-headed Larry Moe and Curly beast. The Do-Do finally appears, to great fanfare, and eludes Porky by pulling out a pencil and drawing himself a door. Written by Paul Penna <tterrace@wco.com>

Trivia

At one point in the pan of the various denizens of Wackyland, a character with large glasses comes out of a pot and says, "Hello, Bobo." This refers to animator Robert Cannon, whose nickname was Bobo and who did wear big glasses. On the pot are the words "Treg's a Foo", refering to sound effects man Treg Brown. (Foo, incidentally, is a nonsense word from the Smokey Stover comic strip, a big influence on this cartoon in terms of humor and visual style.) See more »

Goofs

When Porky bumps into the Goin' Up! door, look closely. He suddenly gains a band-aid. In the shot where the Do-Do appears with the WB shield, the band-aid is gone. See more »

Still one of Porky's best cartoons
27 July 2011 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I am a huge fan of Looney Tunes, and I do like Porky Pig. Porky in Wackyland is not only one of Porky's best cartoons but one of Bob Clampett's masterpieces. The animation is wonderful, none of the characters are blockily drawn and the background art is fluid and inventive. The music is energetic and very infectious. The story is very well paced and interesting, and the dialogue and gags are wonderfully funny and surreal, not to mention wacky. Porky is great here with great dialogue and personality and he even gets to ride a really sweet little plane, the dodo is the cutest cartoon dodo I've seen and they wouldn't be extinct possibly if they had the intelligence and skills that this dodo had. Mel Blanc gives a bravura vocal performance, and Billy Bletcher even shows up briefly as a Goon. In conclusion, a brilliant cartoon and one of Porky and Clampett's best. 10/10 Bethany Cox
