Hens are working in the "Flockheed Eggcraft Factory", laying eggs for the war effort until they get distracted by a rooster singing like Frank Sinatra. Porky, the supervisor, rushes to investigate. Soon, he's auditioning for a new crooner; among those showing up are caricatures of Al Jolson, 'Jimmy Durante' and Cab Calloway. He evetually gets to a Bing Crosby clone, who introduces himself as "The Old Groaner". Between the two of them, egg production is soon more than he can handle. Written by

The closing scene, just before closing credits begin, Porky Pig asked 'Frank Sinatra (I)' & Bing Crosby, how they got his hens, to lay their large quantities of eggs, then Frank and Bing teamed together, their musical voices caused Porky Pig, as if he became a hen, to lay a big quantity of eggs, then the closing credits begin.

I have loved Looney Tunes cartoons for as long as I can remember, and I could watch them all day if I wanted to. Swooner Crooner is just wonderful, and one of Porky's best for me. Porky is great value here, he can be bland when he is partnered with stronger characters but he is always endearing regardless. The animation is beautiful to watch, very crisp and vibrant in colour, while the music has so much character and nostalgic value. The songs are a treasure trove of old favourites, and are just a joy to the ear. Maybe the story is not the strongest one in the world, though it is an original one, but that doesn't matter in the slightest to me as there is never a dull moment and the whole of Swooner Crooner is relentlessly entertaining. The dialogue has freshness and wit, the gags are clever and imaginatively timed- the auditions especially are an absolute riot- and the caricatures of Frank Sinatra(the best one for me), Bing Crosby, Cab Calloway, Jimmy Durante, Nelson Eddy and Al Jolson are really fun to spot. Mel Blanc's vocal characterisations never disappoint, always a large part of why Looney Tunes cartoons work so well as a majority whole, and Swooner Crooner is no exception. All in all, wonderful and recommended with no hesitation. 10/10 Bethany Cox
