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. Written by Jon Reeves <>

the root of that one Danish political cartoon
10 July 2007 | by (Portland, Oregon, USA) – See all my reviews

In early 2006, news came out that a Danish magazine had printed an image of the prophet Mohammed with a bomb-shaped turban. Needless to say, this enraged the Muslim world (especially since Islamic law forbids any portrayal of Mohammed). Anyway, it turns out that the political cartoon wasn't the first such image. "Ali-Baba Bound" has a similar drawing. The cartoon portrays Porky Pig getting sent to protect a foreign legion outpost from Ali Baba and his Dirty Sleeves. When Porky arrives and discovers that the legionnaires have gone to a convention in Boston, Ali Baba attacks.

What I mean about the political cartoon is that one of Ali Baba's men has a giant bomb tied to his head and strongly desires to get to use it. But maybe I'm the only one who ever noticed the connection.

I guess that as long as we understand the negative Arab stereotyping, it's easier to watch the cartoon, although it's far from Porky's funniest.
