Porky at the Crocadero is a 1938 Looney Tunes cartoon directed by Frank Tashlin and starring Porky Pig.


While at the Crocadero night club, Porky dreams of becoming a bandleader, but he finds out that he has no money. Instead he gets a job at the club working on the dishes. His boss gets the wrong idea of Porky involving a fly and fires him. The boss's bandleaders don't show up, so he brings Porky back and has him impersonate several famous bandleaders.


Nickelodeon aired two censored versions of this cartoon, both cutting out the brief part where Porky (as Cab Calloway singing "Chinatown") runs across the stage dressed as a stereotypical Chinese peasant:

  • The black and white version that aired when Looney Tunes on Nickelodeon was a Nick at Nite show replaced the shot of Porky as a Chinese peasant with a repeat shot of the patrons on the dance floor during the Guy Lombago scene.
  • When Looney Tunes on Nickelodeon became a daytime show and phased out their black and white cartoons in favor of redrawn and computer-colorized versions of black and white cartoons, the shot of Porky as a Chinese peasant was replaced with a frozen shot of the empty stage as Porky runs off it. It should be noted that both versions had the audio play as normal.
