Storyline

A tour of the Azusa Zoo, whose only apparent employee is Porky Pig. We open with several sight gags: a Missing Lynx, the Tortoise and his Hair, and a Bum Steer. Next, three wolves: Timber, Gray, and Hollywood. Porky feeds the giraffe by sending a bucket of food up a carnival ring-the-bell contraption. A rabbit shows off his cotton tail; some March Hares march by. The running gag: A lion, pacing, looking for something. Amid many other spot gags, Porky tries to feed the seals something other than the mountain trout they require, and is met by a "no substitutions" sign; he also uses a stick to find the only sensitive spot on a hippo. Some WWII gags: A rabbit, surrounded by his huge family, is dismayed by a government order to increase production 100%; a panther finishes his meal and puts the bowl on a scrap aluminum pile. The payoff of the running gag: An ice cream man arrives, and the lion signals it over, but he's not interested in the ice cream just its delivery man. Written by Jon Reeves <jreeves@imdb.com>

Who's Who at the Zoo was a hilarious Looney Tunes cartoon
28 June 2015 | by (Baton Rouge, La.) – See all my reviews

This Norman McCabe Looney Tunes cartoon was an extra of the Warner Night at the Movies link of the In This Our Life DVD. It's a spot-gag cartoon narrated by Robert C. Bruce who'd do this for the studio for a couple of decades, so familiar was his voice when I first saw these cartoons as a kid of the '70s though the ones I remember were in Technicolor and this one's in black-and-white. Porky Pig is the zookeeper of the Azusa Zoo though he only appears in spots. Many of the gags are related to the World War II period this was filmed in. The one about the lion who appears in spots before the end is perhaps the most hysterical of them all! So on that note, Who's Who at the Zoo is highly recommended.
