Porky the Fireman (1938) Poster

Alternate Versions

This cartoon was colorized in 1968 by having every other frame traced over onto a cel. Each redrawn cel was painted in color and then photographed over a colored reproduction of each original background. Needless to say, the animation quality dropped considerably from the original version with this method. The cartoon was colorized again in 1992, this time with a computer adding color to a new print of the original black and white cartoon. This preserved the quality of the original animation.
The uncut version of this cartoon is extremely rare. In the edited version, a man is falling and the men yell, "Get the net!". As the man falls through a cloud of smoke there is an abrupt edit; there was possibly a blackface gag that was cut.
