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
The American Pledge of Allegiance in 1939, as shown in the film, is two words shorter than the modern version. The words "under God" were added to the text in 1954, after a bill was signed into law, by 34th U. S. President, Dwight D. Eisenhower, during his first of two terms as U. S. President, on Monday, June 14th, 1954. See more »
Porky Pig learns why the Pledge of Alligence is important when he has a dream of Uncle Sam who tells him about the founding fathers in this educational short. You can practically hear the liberals of today groaning and bitching at the mere prospect of even thinking about watching this short, but it is very well put together and makes one proud to be an American so it accomplishes what it's intended porpoise was. Hell, I still think this short should be shown in classrooms, but that will in all likelihood never happen due to the loony Left 9th Circuit of Appeals in California, although Michael A. Newdow might be happy to get the pre-1954 version of the Pledge back (I strongly doubt that he'd stop at that though). This animated short can be seen on Disc 3 of the Looney Tunes Golden Collection Volume 2 and also features an optional commentary by Jerry Bech & Inker and Painter Martha Sigall
