Porky decides to ask Petunia to marry him. Petunia says no, causing Porky to decide to hang himself. The beam holding the rope collapses as Porky jumps, and instead of killing himself, he is knocked unconscious and has a dream about what life would be like if he and Petunia got married. It starts out fine, but soon turns into a nightmare. Porky is forced to do the housework and care for their many children while Petunia sits around, doing nothing but eating chocolate, gaining weight, spoiling her pet dog, yelling at Porky for not keeping up with the housework, and clobbering him with a rolling pin if he talks back. Porky wakes up to Petunia, who says she will marry him. After envisioning his awful wedded life with Petunia, Porky runs away, but not before giving Petunia's snooty dog a well-deserved kick in the butt.
When this cartoon was shown on the former WB network, the end where Porky runs off (after coming to from his failed suicide attempt and realizing that marrying Petunia will lead to the unhappy marriage he dreamt about), then returns to kick Petunia's dog as the cartoon irises out was cut.
This is the first appearance of Petunia Pig. Petunia was intended to be a recurring character, as the WB staff were trying to find a new character to star with Porky. Petunia was unsuccessful, along with many other characters and only starred in a handful of shorts and a couple of books. A second star would not found until "Porky's Duck Hunt", Daffy Duck's first cartoon.
