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>

Trivia

The three headed creature seems to be based on or influenced by The Three Stooges. The left head has a black hair cut similar to Moe, the middle head is bald just like Curly and the right head has long strands similar to Larry. The three heads argue, punch and eye gouge each other just as the late Three Stooges character actors used to do. The reference to the creature's mother being scared by a pawnbroker's sign is a reference to an old folk belief that things which scare or startle a pregnant woman influence the characteristics of the child. It also could be a means of avoiding copyright infringement (the actual Stooges were stilll under contract to Columbia studios, as this was created). See more »

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 »

Quotes

Dodo: [chains Porky in a dodo disguise] I'm rich! I'm rich! I've got the last dodo! I've got the last dodo!
Porky Pig: Oh no you haven't!
[reveals himself]
Porky Pig: 'I-I'M rich! 'I-I'VE got the last dodo!
[after Porky runs with the dodo in the horizon, hundreds of dodos appear]
Dodos: Yes sir! He's got the last dodo! Hoot! Hoot! Hoot!

Remake of "Porky in Wackyland" - the remake is almost like re-watching the original in colour
27 October 2008 | by (Scotland) – See all my reviews

Ways in that this is different to "Porky in Wackyland": It has a Salvador Dali style, which is a good touch, there is colour animation, Porky has a more modern animation style to him and some of the jokes are missed out/enhanced, which is both good and bad in different places.

Ways in that this is the same to "Porky in Wackyland": Many of the jokes are exactly the same - even animated in a way which is almost exactly the same.

Overall, this remake was entirely pointless - except there were some jokes that were better improved than in the last episode. Having said that, there are many very good jokes in "Porky in Wackyland" that were cut out completely here.

If you have not watched either "Dough for the Do-do" or "Porky in Wackyland", then I strongly recommend watching the original first, as it is slightly better than this episode. If you have already watched PIW, but not this, then expect a cartoon almost exactly the same but with colour. If you have watched this already, but not PIW, then expect PIW to be a much older cartoon with a different slant on humour.

Enjoy "Porky in Wackyland"! :-)

7 and a half out of ten.
