I love this cartoon!!!!!!!!!
18 November 1999 | by (Newburyport, Massachusetts) – See all my reviews

In this cartoon, Porky poses as a doctor. A dog comes to his office with the hiccups. On his way to the exam room, some elephants chase him. He runs in to the exam room, and tells Dr. Porky that his problem is that he is being chased by elephants. While Porky goes off to rig up some medication, the elephants come in, give the patient an exam, and ask him a series of questions. When Porky comes back, he gives his patient the medicine, which works for a second, but then the elephants come back. If you haven't seen this cartoon, see it!
