Porky Pig owns a fish store and goes out to lunch. After a cat is not having much success with a mouse, he goes into the fish store when Porky is away. When the cat thinks he has the good appetite, the fish go to war against him and drive him out of the store. He is then freaked out by the mouse and shrinks as the mouse grows. Written by

Porky's out to lunch while the fish carry the story...
Some ingenious but corny gags involving flying fish that look like bomber planes and electric eels that light up to spell out warning messages play a huge part in the success of PORKY'S POOR FISH, but the pig himself is out to lunch.
The shenanigans of a hungry cat with his eye on the fish store sets the pace for a fast-moving B&W cartoon with a number of sight gags (all pretty corny but fun to watch). The animation is good, although one misses seeing these sort of things in the vivid color used throughout most of the '40s and '50s cartoons.
Not the funniest Porky the Pig, but it'll have to do--as seen on the Errol Flynn Signature Collection No.1.
