Storyline

Porky ventures into Darkest Africa in search of the last Do-Do bird, and winds up in Wackyland, a surreal place where the sun comes up atop a human pyramid, the Warner Brothers shield comes zooming from the sky, and populated by creatures such as a three-headed Larry Moe and Curly beast. The Do-Do finally appears, to great fanfare, and eludes Porky by pulling out a pencil and drawing himself a door. Written by Paul Penna <tterrace@wco.com>

Goofs

The stated reward for the last dodo keeps changing. In the newspaper, the headline shows the dodo's value as $4,000,000,000,000 (four trillion). A secondary headline reads "P.S.: 000,000,000", boosting the price to four sextillion. When Porky disguises himself as another dodo, he claims to be worth "six trillion dollars". See more »

Porky goes in search of the elusive dodo bird in Friz Freleng's excellent remake of "Porky in Wackyland." Much of this is a scene-for-scene remake of the earlier cartoon, which was directed by Bob Clampett. This one's in color, though, which will make a world of difference for many viewers. Remakes are always controversial, even among classic animation fans, but I think there are merits to both versions. Liking the remake doesn't mean you disrespect the original. In this case, I prefer watching the remake because of the rich colors and the fluid animation. The Salvador Dali-inspired visuals are terrific and they really pop more in color than black & white. It's a very fun extension of Bob Clampett's wildly creative and unique classic.
