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

Did You Know?
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
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
