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 »

Pretty amusing idea with good characters
15 October 2003 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

With a baby boom occurring among affluent parents, the storks are unable to cope with the extra work and begin to get behind on orders and make mistakes. Porky Pig is enlisted as the transportation/logistics manager to ensure all delivers are made and Daffy Duck is given the job as his assistant. However the department is so stretched that errors and problems are inevitable.

Opening with an imaginative idea (although it has been done a lot as I write this) the film makes itself better by adding the great characters of Porky and Daffy together, albeit in separate scenes within the same film. The plot allows for plenty of imagination – the production line `making babies' prior to shipping out via stork (or whatever) right down to the scene showing the wrong babies delivered to all the animals!

Daffy is manic but is allowed the edge of bitterness that always made him appear at his best when done just right. Porky is good as well, as are the majority of the support characters no matter how big their role.

Overall this is amusing as it is all quite imaginative and funny. The inclusion of two popular and strong characters just serves to make it funnier and more polished a product.
