It's the start of the Baby-Boom, and the overworked delivery system is full of glitches: Mother Goose gets a baby skunk, a Scotty dog gets a little hippo, and Mr. and Mrs. Mouse wind up with a kitten. Porky and Daffy take over the Baby Factory and get things straightened out until an unidentified egg comes rolling down the assembly line. Written by

When Mama Gorilla says, "Mister Anthony, I have a problem," this is a reference to John J. Anthony, who hosted the radio show "Good Will Hour" for 20 years and gave advice to married couples. His show would open with a European-accented woman saying that line in a similar fashion. See more »
In the scene where Porky grabs a hold of Daffy's leg to keep him from escaping when Daffy tells him to let go his mouth doesn't move. See more »
The year 1946 marks the first full year, I believe, of "The Baby Boomers."
Anyway, corny humor and a cop-out beginning (using past footage of other cartoons) has us looking at a newspaper headline reading " Unprecedented Demand For Babies Leads to Overworked Stork." We then go to the famous nightclub, "The Stork Club" (where else) where the drunk Jimmy Durante-stork is crying the blues that he does all the work and gets no credit. Then they show some stock footage in demonstrating how the stork has been making mistakes with wrong deliveries.
That weak segment gives away to better things when Porky Pig is appointed to handle the stork's problems and Daffy Duck assigned as his assistant....but not that much better. The assembly line babies included some good material but Daffy doesn't look like Daffy and isn't anywhere as funny as he was in later cartoons. This has the appearance of a 1930s 'toon. It looked primitive and lacked the smart humor of the 1950s stuff.
