Storyline

Porky finds out that Ali-Baba and his Dirty Sleeves plan to attack the fort; it's up to him to go warn the fort. He gets there to discover everyone has left for the Legion convention in Boston. Porky and his rented camel fend off the attackers themselves for a while, but when the situation gets dire, the young camel summons its mother. Momma takes care of the attacker that's menacing them. The secret weapon, who has been sitting on the bench with an artillery shell strapped to his head, now comes in, but runs right through the fort and into Ali-Baba.

Not Too Many Laughs

Ali-Baba Bound (1940)

** 1/2 (out of 4)

Porky Pig is out riding around the desert when he receives word that Ali-Baba is going to attack the local fort. Porky goes to warn them but there's no one at the fort so he must battle the entire Arab army.

ALI-BABA BOUND is another decent, if not all that special, entry of the early Porky Pig series. I'm not going to lie, I find most of Porky's early films to be decent but they just aren't what I'd call a classic or even good. This one here once again benefits from some nice animation with the best bit being a long shot of the battle. As far as laughs go there aren't too many here. If you're a fan of Porky then perhaps you'll get more entertainment out of this but for me it was mildly entertaining but nothing more.
