Storyline

Porky's father is going to lose his farm. Porky goes to town with his horse and works a milk route, with a warning that if he breaks a bottle he's fired. As he's delivering, cats follow along behind draining the bottles. Meanwhile, Hank Horsefly follows them into town. He stings Dobbin, who crashes and breaks many bottles. They happen upon a horse race and accidentally enter; the horse is merely plodding along until it gets stung again. Porky wins the $10,000 race and drives home in a limo just in time.

Milk and Money (1936)

*** (out of 4)

An evil banker tells Porky's father that they are going to lose the farm if it isn't paid for by the next day. Porky decides to get a job working as a milk man to gain some extra cash and soon another money making opportunity comes his way.

This here is another winning short for the Porky Pig series, which was really picking up steam at this point. Tex Avery directed this one and while I wouldn't call it a classic film there are still plenty of nice little gags here that make it worth watching. One such example is early on when Porky is plowing a field and a horsefly stings the horse and gets the job done a lot quicker. Another nice gag involves a horse race where a frantic pace in the animation really makes for an impressive scene. MILK AND MONEY is certainly a charming little gem that fans of the series will enjoy.
