Porky takes a nap after refusing to say the Pledge of Allegiance. Uncle Sam comes to him in his dreams and explains to him what the Pledge of Allegiance realistically means, and how it honors those who gave their life for the nation. Porky Pig then sees the error of his ways. Written by Mike Konczewski

Best historic animation dialog
19 March 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I wish there were additional animated characters, like Bugs Bunny, Sylvester the Cat, Daffy Duck and Elmer Fudd having to learn the Pledge of Allegiance, and with different historic events for each one. Then, additional history facts would be taught, along with each character. Such as Nathan Hale being caught and hanged by the British, in August of 1776, as one fact. It was in January of 1959 that Alaska became the 49th United State and in August of 1959, Hawaii became the 50th United State. Then the current United States of America Flag of 50 stars would be shown. There also should be previous Flag designs, before Betsy Ross' ideal flag creation.
