Porky ventures into Darkest Africa in search of the last Do-Do bird, and winds up in Wackyland, a surreal place where the sun comes up atop a human pyramid, the Warner Brothers shield comes zooming from the sky, and populated by creatures such as a three-headed Larry Moe and Curly beast. The Do-Do finally appears, to great fanfare, and eludes Porky by pulling out a pencil and drawing himself a door.

Did You Know?
At one point in the pan of the various denizens of Wackyland, a character with large glasses comes out of a pot and says, "Hello, Bobo." This refers to animator Robert Cannon
, whose nickname was Bobo and who did wear big glasses. On the pot are the words "Treg's a Foo", refering to sound effects man Treg Brown
. (Foo, incidentally, is a nonsense word from the Smokey Stover comic strip, a big influence on this cartoon in terms of humor and visual style.) See more
In the Wackyland sign, the words "It Can Happen Here!!" are underlined (with "Can" being double underlined) on close-up, but are not underlined in long shots. See more

[throws newspaper at the camera
A paper boy walks onto the title card and thrusts the newspaper with Porky in the front page into the camera, covering the entire screen. After enough time for the audience to read the headline, the camera dissolves to Porky in his plane. See more
In 1943 Warner Bros took the second half of Porky In Wacklyland, added color, and used it as the second half of Tin Pan Alley Cats. Both were directed by Bob Clampett. The music was the same in both versions. See more
