Full movie description "What Price Porky":Porky tries to feed his chickens, but some ducks steal the corn he puts out, then declare war. The battle rages, with the ducks against the chickens, sometimes in wing-to-wing combat, but also aerial attacks, and Porky finally turning the tide with his machine gun improvised from a wringer washer and a bag of corn. But the ducks still get the last laugh.
Reviews of the What Price PorkyDuring Porky Pig's first few years as a cartoon star, Warner Bros. mostly cast him in B&W cartoons* showing the various aspects of life. A slightly more complex turn for the stuttering swine was Bob Clampett's "What Price Porky". This one has Porky as a farmer trying to feed his chickens, but the ducks - who look and talk like Daffy Duck - steal the food. When I say that this leads to full-scale war, I don't mean that figuratively: I mean war involving tanks, bombers, trenches, the works.
It's worth noting that this came out in between WWI and WWII. At this time, the Spanish Civil War was raging. Japan had colonized Korea and much of China (the Japanese were real SOBs to the Koreans and Chinese, and still refuse to own up to their actions), while Mussolini's fascist Italy had colonized Ethiopia (and Italy committed some real atrocities there). And of course Nazi Germany was doing its stuff. In a way, this cartoon looks like a premonition of WWII.
But it was probably never intended as such. I just like to read really far into things. Bob Clampett no doubt intended the cartoon as pure entertainment, and it certainly entertained me. Moreover, it's a good thing that I saw "WPP" now, when I'm old enough to understand what it portrays. Had I watched it was I was a little kid, I would have naively laughed at it without comprehending the jokes. Definitely worth seeing.
*Until the early 1940s, the Looney Tunes - filmed in black and white - featured the stars, while the Merrie Melodies - filmed in color from 1934 onward - featured miscellaneous characters. After the Looney Tunes went color, the series became indistinguishable except for the opening songs: the Looney Tunes used "Merry-Go-Round Broke Down", while the Merrie Melodies used "Merrily We Roll Along".
