Looney TV: Porky in Wackyland (1938)

Porky Pig goes hunting for what is supposed to be the last of the do-do's, but, as you'll see in "Porky in Wackyland", nothing is what it seems to be.

Keep an eye open for gratuitous use of the WB shield logo and the presence of a 3-headed parody of the Three Stooges.

11 years later, a shorter remake, "Dough For the Do-Do", was released in full color, with some elements of "Wackyland" edited out. We'll pull up "Dough" another time, and you'll see what I mean.

Rating: A.
