Daffy Duck convinces an unwilling Porky Pig to quit his job with Leon Schlesinger. Why be a cartoon actor, Daffy says, when you can be leading man opposite Bette Davis? Schlesinger lets Porky go, but he is confident Porky will be back. Porky's adventures begin when he tries to get past the guard at the studio gate. He manages it by disguising himself as Oliver Hardy, but he has more trouble ahead. Meanwhile, Daffy tries to convince Schlesinger that he should take over Porky's starring roles. Daffy's scheme backfires when Porky returns to get his old job back. Written by
