Porky in Wackyland vs Dough for the Do-Do

Porky in Wackyland vs Dough for the Do-Do... A trippy side-by-side comparison of two surreal cartoons : one by Robert Clampett from 1938, and the other a color remake from Friz Freleng in 1949.

Wackyland is to cartoons, what cartoons are to real life.

This was my favorite cartoon at a young age, and I saw both versions, but never realized they were that different until I saw this. It rocks.

OK, now which one's the one with Porky Pig and the hallucinogenic dream-world of leprechauns?

Great post! I'd only ever seen the color version, never realizing that there was a B&W original. It's a shame that the only comeback that the Dodo ever had was as a sorta-regular character on Tiny Toons in the early 90s.

Why did Freleng decide to remake it?

So it would be in color, as far as I can figure out from web searching.

Previously, I was astounded by this!

It's such a wonderful creepy melody, that music. Perfect for linking the two!

The 1940s coincides with the years that Salvador Dali lived in America. The remake seems to be a sort tribute to Dali.

Porky slimmed down over the years. He should have endorsed a celebrity weight-loss program.

The color one is much more disturbing, I guess because of the Dali clocks, guitars and skulls.

Interesting that the three headed beast in the earlier version seems like an obvious reference to the Three Stooges, but in the later version, the hair coloring is all wrong.

As a child Pigs is Pigs gave me nightmares. Creepy starts ~3:52.

The Wackyland segments were far and away my favorite part of Tiny Toon Adventures.

Nomyte, are you thinking of The Wearing of the Grin?
