Boy, the humor was corny back around 1940 but if you silly puns and such, it will make you laugh.
Before this cartoon begins, we read that "This Screen Play is an adaptation of the World Famous Book "Twenty Thousand Leaks Under The Ceiling." Then we see a cat unsuccessfully chase a mouse followed by the graphic "Meanwhile -- The Shoppe Around the Corner." (Yes, it helps to know the movies of that day.)
We see "Porky's Pete Fish Shoppe - Under New Mis-Management." Yup....the humor is strictly cornball. These corny signs are everywhere (i.e. ("Today's special: Little Shrimps with Big Mussels," "14-carat Goldfish," eels named "A.C. and D.C.," etc.) Actually, some of the puns with all the different kinds of fish are quite funny.
The story occurs halfway through when that aforementioned cat walks by the fish show, after Porky leaves for lunch, sneaks in and thinks he's going to have a nice lunch himself. However.....
In all, a pleasant cartoon that won't evoke a lot of big laughs but will have you smiling numerous times. It's a misnomer calling it a "Porky Pig" cartoon because he isn't in it for long. It was a feature on the Errol Flynn movie, Sea Hawk" DVD.
