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.

Fun short with Porky Pig and Miss Prissy. This is Prissy's first cartoon before she would become a regular staple in the Foghorn Leghorn series. Farmer Porky scolds Prissy for not producing any eggs. Then she lays one (or thinks so) but doesn't want Porky to take it. He does anyway and from there things take a hilarious turn with Prissy rescuing her egg from a woman who bought it in the market, then getting mixed up with a gangster named Pretty Boy Bagel. It's a very funny cartoon, more for Prissy and the side characters than for Porky. My favorite scene is when the police are shooting at Pretty Boy Bagel and he "fires" back at them with his fingers. Priceless. Very nice animation. Love the colors. Great voice work from Mel Blanc and Bea Benaderet. A fun short that should please most Looney Tunes fans, especially those who enjoy Miss Prissy.
