Storyline

A woman's house, on the side of the cliff, is about to fall into the sea, due to waves washing away the cliff. In a panic, she call's Porky's moving company. Porky's assistant, a former boxer, starts swinging when he hears a bell until hit on the head, when he stops and says, "Okay, boss." Porky's van is pulled by an ostrich. They get to the house and have various adventures while moving the furniture, mostly because the entire house keeps tilting back and forth on the shaky ground. Finally, a big wave washes most of the house's contents into the van. Written by Jon Reeves <jreeves@imdb.com>

Alternate Versions

This cartoon was colorized in 1968 by having every other frame traced over onto a cel. Each redrawn cel was painted in color and then photographed over a colored reproduction of each original background. Needless to say, the animation quality dropped considerably from the original version with this method. The cartoon was colorized again in 1992, this time with a computer adding color to a new print of the original black and white cartoon. This preserved the quality of the original animation.

Porky's Moving Day

Porky's Moving Day (1936)

*** (out of 4)

A woman lives in a house that is hanging over a cliff and once the waves start to smash into it she knows it's time to go. She calls Porky and his assistant to come get her out of the house by they run into a variety of problems.

PORKY'S MOVING DAY isn't the greatest animated cartoon out there but it's certainly good enough to where you can have a good time with it. There are many good moments scattered throughout the film but I must say that the greatest thing is certainly the animation and I especially loved the look of the house hanging over the cliff and the giant waves that smash up against it. There are some funny moments inside the house as Porky must battle with the water rushing in and the constant threat of the house falling.
