Storyline

Porky Pig travels by horse-pulled, covered wagon to California to join in the 1848 Gold Rush and is ambushed by a diminutive, large-nosed, nasal-voiced, ever-so-polite Mohican with glasses, who wants to scalp the west-bound pig. Porky manages to elude the little Indian by ducking at appropriate times, donning a metal helmet, speedily horse-riding and canoeing. The Indian becomes caught in a salmon net and canned in a factory. Porky arrives in California, to find the only gold that he can extract from a mine is the golden tooth belonging to the Indian.

This Porky Pig episode is not that racist.
2 July 2008 | by (Scotland) – See all my reviews

Personally I did not really see this as racist, although now I acknowledge that it is. I've watched one or two things which are just as racist at points and yet they have not been banned. I am seethingly against racism, but I do not mind watching it in an old cartoon.

I quite like this episode, as I found some of the gags very funny and the theme of the episode is also good and works well (the Gold Rush and Gold Tooth theme). Porky turns out to be a good character, I think this might be one of a few episodes where he was starting to become braver and more intelligent than the characters alongside him (for example, Daffy Duck). I also quite like the animation of this short.

This episode starts with a dog yawning on a hillside. He has a gold tooth. Immediately a passer by tells everyone that there is gold to be found in California. Mad or what? Porky excitedly goes on his way, little does he realise there is someone to try and scalp him on the way...

I recommend this episode to anyone who does not mind anything at all racist and to people who like Porky. Enjoy "Nothing but the Tooth"! :-)
