Did You Know?

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 1995, 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.

Starts Strong, But Not Much To It Overall
3 June 2007 | by ccthemovieman-1See all my reviews

Porky Pig, the most popular of Looney Tunes characters of the 1930s, is racing along on his motorbike and tells us, the audience, he's going on a picnic with his girlfriend, "P-P-P-P-P- P-Petunia." (Easier done than said.)

There were a bunch of good sight gags in this black-and-white animated short but only at the beginning when Porky goes to ask his girlfriend if she wants to go the park for a picnic. Things such as combing his bald head, the doorbell in which a hand comes out and knocks, little Pinky's baby chair, etc.

Pinky is a little baby that Petunia left behind. Huh? Well, the little tyke catches up and joins them and then creates havoc. This kid must be from the Devil. He's brutal! Porky has to wind up saving him from wild animals in the nearby zoo. Actually, the animals are in danger with this sadistic kid!

This winds up being one of those cartoons in which you say, "Huh? That's it?" when it's over.
