Storyline

A variant on the fable of the grasshopper and the ants: Porky is a hardworking farmer, while his neighbor, a bear, sings "working can wait" (as do all his animals). Winter comes, and the only scrap of food in his drafty cabin is a single bean, which a mouse steals. As he stalks his dog past Porky's cabin, he sees the feast on Porky's table and begs to join him.

back then, working actually constituted a key to a better life
20 July 2008 | by (Portland, Oregon, USA) – See all my reviews

One of Porky's outings from the days when they gave him rather hokey roles depicting "normal" parts of life; as it is, Porky only appears in two scenes, so they could have easily made this a miscellaneous cartoon (those were the cartoons that didn't feature any of the stars). Laborious Porky does everything that one needs to do to get by in life, while his lazy neighbor believes that work can wait; this proves unfortunate for the poor sucker come winter.

Back then, work actually worked for most people. Nowadays, with the economy like it is, people are lucky to find any work. Anyway, "Porky's Bear Facts" is an OK edition to the Looney Tunes series. Friz Freleng created a neater version of the grasshopper and ant story in 1942's "Foney Fables".
