What Price Porky is a 1938 Looney Tunes cartoon featuring Porky Pig and Daffy Duck.

Plot[edit]

When Porky goes to feed his hens and chickens, a group of ducks steal the corn he sets out. After sending a document filled with insults from The Ducktators (Daffy Duck, aka "General Quacko"), war erupts between the chickens and the ducks. Newborn chicks form battalions from the moment they hatch, with the chickens digging trenches. The ducks goose-step in the marsh, saluting "General Quacks", as they use swans and geese as battlecarriers and airplanes. Porky manages to turn the tide with a machine gun improvised from a wringer washer and a bag of corn.

Production notes[edit]

The copyright date in the opening credits reads 1937.

Availability[edit]

What Price Porky is available on the DVD release of The Dawn Patrol (1938 film) and the Looney Tunes Golden Collection Volume 5, Disc 4.
