To me, "Porky's Midnight Matinée" seems like one of the cartoons that the Termite Terrace crowd made as a sort of place holder between the really cool ones ("Wabbit Twouble" was released a few weeks after this one). It's got a fairly interesting plot line, as Porky Pig is cleaning a backstage area and comes across a sadistic trained ant. Some of the things that the ant does to him mirror what Tweety would later do to Sylvester.
There's just one thing, though. I don't quite understand the title. I've always thought that a matinée is a movie showing during the day (thus the title of Joe Dante's movie "Matinee"). But I guess that I shouldn't dwell on that. Worth seeing.
