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 »

Hollywood underwater
24 September 2007 | by See all my reviews

I will say that "Porky's Five & Ten" is far from the best cartoon that the Termite Terrace crowd produced. But knowing that Bob Clampett directed, you should know that you're in for a few surprises. Certainly some of the celebrity impersonations were pretty cool. It seems that once again, nobody ribs Hollywood more than Hollywood itself.

OK, maybe we could be cynical and ask why this is labeled a Porky Pig cartoon when he doesn't appear that much in it (not to mention that people in the 21st century very likely won't get some of the pop culture references). But I say that as long as we just accept the cartoon for it's completely wacky premise, then we should be able to have fun. Available on YouTube.
