Trivia

The gag of the baby alligator trying to nurse from a sow was originally followed by a close-up of the sow saying, "Now, don't touch that dial!" The line was cut for being too suggestive, but the first few frames of the censored scene still remain in the final cut. See more »

Goofs

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 »

Quotes

Porky Pig: Gosh. Here's an egg w-without an address. D-D-Daffy!
Daffy Duck: Yes, sir.
Porky Pig: This egg has no address. You'll have to sit on it and hatch it out to see who it b-belongs to.
Daffy Duck: Yes, I'll have to sit on it, and... Oh, no! Oh-ho, no! Sitting on eggs is out. O-W-T out.

maybe the baby boom inspired Fonzie
15 September 2006 | by (Portland, Oregon, USA) – See all my reviews

Usually I never would have suspected that a cartoon would portray the baby boom that occurred after WWII, but "Baby Bottleneck" does just that. It portrays Daffy and Porky working in a baby-producing factory and trying to avoid the glitches that have sent certain infants to the wrong parents. Then, an unidentified egg sends everything haywire.

Aside from looking at the new things going on in the world, I get the feeling that this cartoon may have inspired Fonzie. You see, when Porky picks up the egg, he tells Daffy "Sit on it." In later years, that would become the Fonz's catch phrase.

Oh well, maybe I'm the only person who sees that. The overarching point is, this is a classic cartoon.
