Porky’s Hero Agency
Posted in WB Cartoon Companion on March 22, 2004
Robert Clampett Looney Tune from 1937. In a dream sequence, Porky Pig imagines himself in Ancient Greece, attempting to defeat the Gorgon, who uses a magic needle to petrify her enemies. She’s apparently been hard at work within the Schlesinger studio. A still reproduced in Schneider’s book shows a picket fence comprised of people in the Clampett unit at the time. Left to right, they are Lu Guarnier, Robert Cannon (in glasses), John Carey, Ernest Gee, Clampett, and Chuck Jones (who was not yet a director).
Note also the references to Shirley Temple and the Three Stooges, who get turned into the Three Wise Monkeys.
