Wacky Petticoat Junction type movie now in public domain.

Townsfolk all move slow.

Esmeralda the town pig just gave birth to a slew of liberals.

Not sure how many cuz no one can count.

We even get to see the Pathe chicken for a minute! Huh? What's that doing there? Anyway the pig gets press all over the globe.

A show producer reads about it and wants some of the action.

He takes the troupe to Arkansas.

The plan is to find out what made the pig spawn so many liberal.

Craziness ensues.

It's a very watchable movie that could never be made today.
