Watch Porky Pig Online
Porky Pig is an animated cartoon character in the Warner Bros. Looney Tunes and Merrie Melodies series of cartoons. He was the first character created by the studio to draw audiences based on his star power, and the animators (particularly Bob Clampett) created many critically acclaimed shorts using the fat little pig. Even after he was supplanted by later characters, Porky continued to be popular with moviegoers and, more importantly, the Warners directors, who recast him in numerous everyman and sidekick roles. He is known for his signature line at the end of each short, “Th-th-th-that’s all folks!” The slogan had also been used by both Bosko and Buddy and even Beans at the end of every Looney Tunes cartoon. In contrast, the Merrie Melodies series used the slogan: So Long, Folks! until the late 1930s when it was replaced with the same one used on the Looney Tunes series. (When Bugs Bunny was the closing character, he would break the pattern by simply saying, in his Brooklynese accent, “And Dat’s De End!”). He is the oldest continuing Looney Tunes character.
Porky and Daffy are guests at the Broken Arms Hotel, but Daffy has gambled away all the money they had. The hotel manager (who has overcharged them outrageously for, among other things, a Louis XIV bed [without Louie] and air [for breathing]) locks them in and won’t let them skip out without paying. The daunted duo try a series of ever more daring and elaborate schemes to sneak out, but with no more luck than the Coyote would ever have in catching the Road Runner six years later.
Constable Porky Pig and his trusty but ever-sneezing bloodhound Eggbert try to capture the Missing Lynx, a German spy and master of disguise, who attempts to blow up a railroad bridge.
he audience enters Porky’s movie theater, with a collection of quick gags: A firefly acting as usher, a kangaroo taking tickets and putting the stubs in her pouch, a chicken buying child tickets for her eggs. A skunk tries to buy a ticket, costing a nickel, but he only has one scent. He looks for a way to sneak in. Meanwhile, Porky introduces the show: a collection of cartoons, drawn as stick figures. At the end, the audience is all gone because the skunk managed to sneak in. Porky’s cartoons include: Circus Parade, Choo-Choo Train, Soldiers (Marchin), Horse Race, and Dances (hula, Mexican hat, and ballet). All accompanied by a self-parody musical score.
A Scottie dog Sandy is starving. He asks his friend, Rover what he’s doing in a car. Rover tells him how he got a master. In a flashback Rover goes up to Porky’s apartment room while he’s taking a bath. He puts on a towel and answers it. Rover walks in and says proposes to be Porky’s pet. Porky does not want him and kicks him out. Rover bangs on the door and Porky gets it. Porky is not impressed with Rover’s talents, carries him out of his apartment and drops him off the stair banister. He runs back to his room panting along with Rover near him.
Porky is the engineer on Toots, his faithful old “Fifteenth Century Limited” train (a crack train; everything is cracked, including Porky), which is to be replaced by the modern streamliner “Silver Fish,” engineered by the villainous Dirty Diggs. They race each other. Porky’s train is too feeble to climb a mountain, so he sprinkles pepper in the engine so that it can sneeze its way up.
