Storyline

Daffy Duck as a radio quiz-show host, and Porky Pig as his contestant. Daffy penalizes Porky very roughly if he doesn't answer a question properly or within the (ridiculously short) designated time. He: drops safes, boulders and waterfalls on Porky; forces Porky to name all 48 states in a very brief moment of time; locks Porky in with a ravenous gorilla and threatens him.

Trivia

The "Miss Shush" Porky is asked to identify by the sound of brushing her teeth is actually, as Daffy tells the audience, "Mamie the 600-Pound Gorilla who appears in Obnoxious Pictures' 'Jungle Jitters'". Both the character and film are fictitious; this is not a reference to the M-G-M cartoon Jungle Jitters (1934) directed by Ub Iwerks nor Warner Brothers' own 1938 cartoon of the same name, directed by Friz Freleng, the latter of which did not feature a gorilla.

Goofs

Porky is asked who won the New Zealand heavyweight championship of 1735; however, New Zealand did not have a permanent European presence until after 1800. See more »

Hilarious!
24 December 2006 | by (Slidell, La.) – See all my reviews

This ranks as one of the funniest Looney Tunes cartoons ever and I'v seen just about everyone in my lifetime. It was puzzled by the comments of one of the reviewers saying it lacked imagination. I was quite an imaginative spoof of the old radio show and later game show (hosted by Bob Barker)known as "Truth or Consequences." The similar parallel has ridiculous questions being asked for which there can be no answer. The difference with sadistic host Daffy is that the contestant (hapless Porky) is brutually tortured (in rather innovative ways)with everything from boulders, safes and hammers to the use of dynamite, buzzsaws and even a gorilla. This is hilarious stuff and a must see for Looney Tunes fans.
