Storyline

Porky and some of his fellow sailors are on shore leave in a bar. A pirate captain discovers that his own crew has jumped ship and forces everyone in the bar to become his crew. The captain treats the crew badly, particularly denying them food (eating the meat off bones, then passing them only the bones). The crew mutinies after a week; the captain tries to fend them off with a cannon, but ends up sending himself into the explosives stores. They explode, and the captain ends up towing the crew on a raft. Written by Jon Reeves <jreeves@imdb.com>

Porky Fights Back
21 September 2017 | by Michael_ElliottSee all my reviews

Shanghaied Shipmates (1936)

*** (out of 4)

A dirty and mean Captain forces Porky Pig and several other men on board his ship where he works them too hard and at dinner time refuses to give them anything except bones. Soon Porky has had enough and stages a mutiny.

If you're a fan of the Porky Pig shorts then you'll certainly enjoy this one. While there aren't a great number of laughs there is some terrific animation as well as some great direction. What I enjoyed the most about this film is how it all just moves along at a nice pace and it has a great musical feel to it. The film packs a nice fight scene at the end and the music score is also very good and fits the material quite well.
