Storyline

On Porky Pig's farm, Miss Prissy, a slow-witted hen, has never laid an egg. So, one of her fellow hens paints Prissy's name on an egg and places it in Prissy's nest. Prissy believes she laid the egg and proudly refuses to let Porky have it to give to a market's truck. Porky takes the egg from her and gives it to the driver of the truck. Prissy follows the truck to a nearby city, determined to regain her egg. She grabs it from a woman in a house and flees. Convinced she's being chased by police, Prissy takes refuge in a run-down building where Pretty Boy Bagel, an escaped criminal, is also hiding out.

Fantastic Cartoon Offers A Lot
7 June 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Porky Pig's farm, home of "Hammond Eggs,: looks nice and prosperous to the point where our Pig is prancing around singing "Old MacDonald Had A Farm."

Each of the hens has a name and Porky collects their eggs each morning, talk to them individually. One hen, "Prissy," is "too embarrassed" to lay an egg so Porky threatens her to produce or else! ("Just bluffing," he tells us). Anyway, the other hens make fun of "square britches." They play a joke on her by planting an egg in her nest. We she discovers it, she goes wild celebrating, handing out cigars to everyone. The poor old girl thinks she finally laid an egg.

This is pretty funny stuff! Prissy is a hoot. However, the story turns dramatic when Prissy doesn't want to give up that egg, and follows it when Porky gives it to the trunk-driving delivering man. Prissy races into town to get that egg back

This cartoon really gets wild at that point, with two crime stories going on at once: a minor one with Prissy and a major one with "Pretty Boy Bagle." The two wind up both holed up in the same place with "the coppers" firing at them. A lot of crazy things happen, making this an outstanding Looney Tunes effort. (Porky winds up being a bit player in this story.)

"Prissy," by the way, was voiced by Bea Benaderet, who went on to become quite famous in television on "The George Burns Show," Green Acres," "The Beverly Hillbillies" and "Petticoat Junction."

It is highly recommend and can be seen on the Looney Tunes Golden Collection Volume Three.
