|Porky Pig's Feat|
Porky Pig's Feat is a one-reel animated cartoon short subject in the Looney Tunes series, produced in black-and-white and released to theatres on July 17, 1943 by Warner Bros. Pictures. It was produced by Leon Schlesinger and directed by Frank Tashlin, with musical supervision by Carl W. Stalling.
The cartoon centers around Porky Pig and Daffy Duck's attempts to escape the Broken Arms Hotel without paying their bill (on which they are charged for every luxury, including air). They engage in several confrontations versus the hotel's stuffy manager, after Daffy gambles away the pair's money in an ill-fated game of craps.
This cartoon is also notable for a short cameo appearance by Bugs Bunny, the series' only black and white performance for the character.
- This cartoon shows what would become an out of character moment for Daffy, as in this cartoon he states, 'Bugs Bunny, my hero!' Later in the cartoon series, Daffy would become a rival of Bugs. The "Leon Schlesinger cartoon" Daffy describes here, in which Bugs grabs a hunter's gun and shoots the hunter down, does not conform to any known Bugs Bunny cartoon.
- This cartoon is also notable as the first appearance of Raymond Scott's song "Powerhouse". It is the iconic Assembly Line musical theme used in many cartoon shows and commercials.
- This cartoon is the only appearance that Bugs Bunny makes in B&W.
- The cartoon was colorized in 1967 and 1990.
- The 1990 Colorization replaces the 1939 - 46 ending with the 1937 - 39 ending.
- When Daffy and Porky are imprisoned, Porky writes "Porky and Petunia 💘"
