Continuity: 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 »

Remake of "Porky in Wackyland", 16 November 2003
Author: tony_ginorio from San Juan, Puerto Rico

Years before Gus Van Sant's scene-by-scene remake of "Psycho", Friz Freleng made a color remake of Bob Clampett's b/w classic "Porky in Wackyland". For the most part, Freleng took the original soundtrack and animation and added color, thus retaining the looney charm of the original. He did make several changes, cutting some scenes and adding a couple of new ones, including an alternate ending. The best addition is the background styling, a clever pastiche of Salvador Dali paintings. (The original backgrounds were inspired by 1930s comics, particularly Smokey Stover.)As remakes go, it's better than most. Best to see the original, but if you can't, "Dough" will do-do just fine.
