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

Did You Know?
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
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
