Storyline

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. Written by Paul Penna <tterrace@wco.com>

Trivia

Most of "Dough for the Do-Do" re-uses gags from "Porky in Wackyland". However, the ending is completely new. "Wackyland" involves Porky disguising himself as a newspaper salesman and nabbing the dodo. By contrast, in "Dough for the Do-Do", Porky disguises himself as the last dodo, and nabs the real dodo. See more »

Goofs

The stated reward for the last dodo keeps changing. In the newspaper, the headline shows the dodo's value as $4,000,000,000,000 (four trillion). A secondary headline reads "P.S.: 000,000,000", boosting the price to four sextillion. When Porky disguises himself as another dodo, he claims to be worth "six trillion dollars". See more »

Quotes

Dodo: [chains Porky in a dodo disguise] I'm rich! I'm rich! I've got the last dodo! I've got the last dodo!
Porky Pig: Oh no you haven't!
[reveals himself]
Porky Pig: 'I-I'M rich! 'I-I'VE got the last dodo!
[after Porky runs with the dodo in the horizon, hundreds of dodos appear]
Dodos: Yes sir! He's got the last dodo! Hoot! Hoot! Hoot!

Totally insane - totally hilarious
19 March 2004 | by bob the mooSee all my reviews

In his search for the priceless Do-Do bird, Porky Pig flies over Africa, into deepest Africa and further into Even Darker Africa. There he finds some strange and crazy things - but nothing prepares him for his meeting with the insane Do-Do bird itself.

The set up for this film is very basic and it doesn't really do anything other than the basic plot summary says; however - it is very, very funny. Set in a world that is half Warner Brothers and half Salvador Dali, the action basically revolves around the fact that everything in this world is totally, totally insane! All sorts of mad characters exist in this world - I really wondered how on earth they managed to think them all up!

Porky is really good here and has more meat (in terms of character) on him than he has had in other films, however, despite his top billing, he is not the star of this film. No - that honour belongs to the wonderfully insane Do-Do bird himself. He is manic and crazy to the point that he out-Daffy's Daffy himself! The film builds to him and I was amazed just how funny and imaginative the character was - especially coming after such a host of crazy characters.

Overall, if you are a fan of Daffy Duck when he was in his crazy period then you will simply love this cartoon. Visually it is impressive and imaginative but it is the Do-Do bird that makes it all work. Join me! Do-do-do-do-do-do-do!
