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
If we're going to take "Old Glory" as a lesson, it should be a warning about the government using tragedies as excuses to practically shred the Constitution (you know what I mean). As for Uncle Sam teaching Porky Pig a lesson about what great men Patrick Henry and George Washington were, that remains debatable since both those men owned slaves. And of course the Bill of Rights originally only gave rich white men voting rights, so it's always worth noting that it has always been popular movements that brought progressive change to our country.
So it's worth seeing as long as you can analyze it. And I wish that we'd kept the Pledge of Allegiance like it is here (with no "under God").
