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 the cat throws the mice out with his contraption. Porky keeps the cat and goes to sleep, but the cats invites other cats. So Porky buys a bulldog from town to get rid of them. But, instead the dog sings with the cats. So instead of getting irritated, Porky sings along with them and the cartoon ends.

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 then starts with Porky sleeping after the Blue Ribbon titles. Some international airings of Cartoon Network left this scene uncut.
  • On the now-defunct The WB network, in addition to the cut made by Cartoon Network, the scene where Claude and the cats singing "Moonlight Bay" and drinking cider is also cut of this cartoon.

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.
