Storyline

Porky tries to feed his chickens, but some ducks steal the corn he puts out, then declare war. The battle rages, with the ducks against the chickens, sometimes in wing-to-wing combat, but also aerial attacks, and Porky finally turning the tide with his machine gun improvised from a wringer washer and a bag of corn. But the ducks still get the last laugh. Written by Jon Reeves <jreeves@imdb.com>

Perhaps not one of Porky or Clampett's best, but a very funny cartoon still
9 September 2012 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I am a fan of Looney Tunes and have been from an early age. Porky Pig I do like, though he is not one of my favourites. What Price Porky is very good, though perhaps not outstanding. I thought the backgrounds were crisp and flowed nicely, but the character designs, with both Porky and Daffy having been designed better since, are somewhat primitive. However, the music is rousing and wonderfully patriotic, and the dialogue and gags as you'd expect from Bob Clampett are hilarious in an often riotous sense. The story while perhaps not the most surprising of all stories is amusing and well paced, while the characters especially the ducks are enormous fun with Porky, playing to his strengths, on great form. Mel Blanc and Clampett himself provide the voices flawlessly. In conclusion, very funny and well worth watching, though I do think as overall cartoons that Porky have done better. 8/10 Bethany Cox
