Golden Yeggs (1950)

*** 1/2 (out of 4)

Wonderful Merrie Melodies short has Porky Pig playing a farmer who finds a golden egg. The real person doesn't take credit for it but Daffy Duck decides to just so he can be famous but soon three gangster show up and demand that he actually lay one. This is a perfect take off on the "goose who laid the golden egg" story brought to perfection by the wonderful job by Freleng. The animation is incredibly well-done and the visual look of the film is great as well. What really works are the three gangsters who would later become known as Rocky and Mugsy. The way they look with the small bottom half but large upper half, hats over the eyes and that monotone voice is hysterical. Porky isn't in the film too much but what time he does have gets plenty of laughs. Certainly one of the best moments in the long-running series.
