Trap Happy Porky is a Looney Tunes short starring Porky Pig, along with Hubie and Bertie, an early design of Claude Cat, and a prototype Hector the Bulldog. It was directed by Chuck Jones, written by Tedd Pierce, and produced by Edward Selzer.

Plot[edit]

Porky is trying to get some sleep, but mice Hubie & Bertie are down there stealing food and breaking stuff. He tries to get them with a simple mouse trap but fails. He then gets a cat and it throws the mice out with his contraption. Porky keeps the cat and goes to sleep, but the cat invites other cats. Porky buys a bulldog from town to get rid of them, but the dog sings with the cats instead. Porky ends singing along with them.

Censorship[edit]

  • On Cartoon Network the opening sequence that reveals where Porky resides in labelled "UNCLE TOM'S CABINS - BOARDERS TAKEN (FOR ALL THEY'VE GOT)" is cut. Instead, the cartoon starts with Porky sleeping after the Blue Ribbon titles. Some international airings of Cartoon Network left this scene uncut.
  • On the WB network, in addition to the cut made by Cartoon Network, the scene where Claude and the cats sing "Moonlight Bay" and drink cider was also cut.

Availability[edit]

Trap Happy Porky is available uncut, and restored with its original opening and closing titles on Looney Tunes Mouse Chronicles: The Chuck Jones Collection.
