Running time (of viewed version): 7:26
Synopsis: Porky and not-Donald-Duck (Dizzy) go fishing; it starts to rain; as Californians they decide to freak out and run inside a derelict yacht club along with a mistreated dog, where they are scared by nothing to be scared of.

Comments: The second of two WB cartoons released this day. The second Porky of the year. Not-Donald-Duck is for some reason a whole lot like Donald Duck. Much better than the Lone Stranger, tho the earlier cartoon was prettier. I don't really like the Thurston Howell Porky fishing outfit tho. Not Donald is pretty annoying; his schtick works in a single cartoon, but I'm hoping he's not around too much.


  1. Wow and double wow! Nice blog! I'm so glad you took the time to show enough pictures to give a feel for the cartoon!

  2. Thanks Eddie. Some of the '39s have felt like there's been very little to screencap (including this one, ironically), but they all seem to come out with a similar numeric range of image pulls.
