Storyline

Porky sets sail for the Boola-Boola islands in the South Seas with a ship full of general merchandise and plans to open a 5 & 10 cent store. But a swordfish cuts a hole in the ship and Porky's goods fall into the ocean, where the fish make creative uses of them, ultimately opening a Hollywood nightclub, complete with fish impersonating various stars. Porky is saved when a waterspout comes along, re-stocking his ship. Written by Jon Reeves <jreeves@imdb.com>

Trivia

One of the lines from the song "Hooray for Hollywood" was changed for this cartoon. The original lyric went, "Go out and try your luck / You might be Donald Duck." For obvious reasons, the name was changed to Daffy Duck. See more »

Porky's Five & Ten-"Go out and try your luck/You may be Daffy Duck..."
1 February 2014 | by (Baton Rouge, La.) – See all my reviews

The above quote is from the version of "Hooray for Hollywood" performed in this cartoon short. It's obvious that Warner Bros. didn't want to plug Disney character Donald Duck when they now had their own star duck (created just the year before) to publicize. Anyway, Porky sails ship to open a store somewhere on an island but a swordfish opens the bottom and all the contents fall out. As a result, a swanky nightclub opens underwater with many celebrities impersonated there. Bob Clampett does many funny spot gags here like a fish swallowing a radio and getting bombarded with sounds of gunshots which causes him to...oh, watch the short which is available on the DVD of Hollywood Hotel as an extra. Quite hilarious and very amusing.
