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

In the Wackyland sign, the words "It Can Happen Here!!" are underlined (with "Can" being double underlined) on close-up, but are not underlined in long shots. See more »

An animation milestone
22 March 1999 | by (Denver, CO) – See all my reviews

"Porky in Wackyland" is a true milestone in animation. It is an amazing example of no-holds-barred animation. It's very obvious the artists had a great time just letting their imaginations go wild on this one. The plot is simple, Porky Pig is searching for the last Do-Do bird. His quest leads him to Wackyland. In Wackyland anything can happen...that's what animation is all about if you ask me. Anything can be brought to life in animation, all you have to do is dream it and draw it. "Porky in Wackyland" represents many crazy dreams, and many wonderful drawings. And on top of it all, it's very funny!
