Storyline

A small town agricultural fair is giving a prize for the largest home grown product. Porky sets to work planting a garden; his neighbor tries a feed mix for his chickens. But the chickens won't eat the feed, so he sets them loose in Porky's garden (one eats some spinach and does a Popeye impression). Porky rescues a pumpkin that they missed and takes it to the fair. The neighbor's chickens eat a huckster's reducing pills on the way in, and just as they are winning first prize, reduce back to eggs, and Porky wins. Written by Jon Reeves <jreeves@imdb.com>

cultivation of Porky's future
21 July 2008 | by lee_eisenbergSee all my reviews

"Porky's Garden" is a remnant of the days when Porky Pig was still the Warner Bros. cartoon star (Daffy Duck had debuted a few months earlier, but didn't get to carry a cartoon until 1938). In these early cartoons, the Termite Terrace crowd cast Porky as a simple guy in roles representing everyday life. Here he grows his vegetables very large for a contest, but his neighbor is also participating and has no qualms about undermining Porky's chances.

I would say that in between Porky's debut and the US entry into WWII, Porky's only really significant cartoons were "Porky's Duck Hunt" (in which Daffy debuted), "Porky in Wackyland" and "Old Glory". Otherwise, most of his roles were pretty hokey. He got really good after the war, when Chuck Jones had him interfere with Daffy's craziness. This one's worth seeing maybe once.
