Trivia

The mouse that robs the trap Porky sets out quotes Baby Snooks' line, "I'm only three and a half years old". However, as house mice are adults at an age of fifty days and have a lifespan of two to three years, a three and a half year old mouse would be a geriatric case. See more »

Get "Happy"!

When Porky Pig (Blanc) has mouse trouble one night and investi-vesti-vesti-checks it out, he finds mice trashing his kitchen and stealing all his food! What's a pig to do?

In "Trap Happy Porky" he finds a helpful cat who devises a Rube Goldberg-esque contraption that waylays every last mouse out of the house and finally gives Porky some peace and quiet for the night...at least until that same cat invites some friends over for a few drinks and....

Well, to say any more would wreck one of the greatest sight gags I've ever witnessed in my entire life of watching cartoons. Suffice it to say you've never heard a better version of "On Moonlight Bay". Ever.

Jones is a master of funny cartoon sights and his visions herein are a delight to behold. In fact, Blanc's voicing of our favorite porker adds onto the joy factor. Then there's the last scene...you HAVE to see it. Go watch Cartoon Network now; it's probably on there at this moment - see what I mean.

Ten stars without hesitation for "Trap Happy Porky" and a star more for cat power!
