Storyline

Porky finds out that Ali-Baba and his Dirty Sleeves plan to attack the fort; it's up to him to go warn the fort. He gets there to discover everyone has left for the Legion convention in Boston. Porky and his rented camel fend off the attackers themselves for a while, but when the situation gets dire, the young camel summons its mother. Momma takes care of the attacker that's menacing them. The secret weapon, who has been sitting on the bench with an artillery shell strapped to his head, now comes in, but runs right through the fort and into Ali-Baba.

Trivia

The title refer to the character Ali Baba from the medieval Arabic adventure tale of Ali Baba and the Forty Thieves and told in the middle eastern collection of stories, One Thousand and One Arabian Nights. See more »

Goofs

In the redrawn version, "The Brown Turban" was misspelled as "The Brown Lurbon". Also, a fly is sitting there when Porky is leaving the "Brown Lurbon". See more »

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 of the Desert
14 January 2019 | by HitchcocSee all my reviews

Porky is left behind as the only legionnaire guarding the fort. The rest are at a legionnaire's convention. Ali-Baba and all his men are set on destroying the fort. But Porky enlists a camel and confronts the bad guys. He is quite enterprising, to say the least, but it takes stereotypical stupidity by the Arabs to bring them down. Still there are a few decent moments. One is a camel at a gas station. I guess the Arabs were already known for their petrol in 1940.
