Porky In Wackyland
"It CAN happen... here."
—Signpost on the border of Wackyland.
is a 1938 Looney Tunes
short, directed by Bob Clampett
. The short has Porky Pig
going off on a quest to Darkest Africa
to find the legendary Do-Do bird, for a cash reward of 4,000,000,000,000 dollars *
. Upon arriving, he discovers the Do-Do's homeland: Wackyland
, an unbelievably insane place where nothing makes sense and anything
can happen. All in all, the short winds up being one really, really strange ride
The color remake, Dough for the Do-Do
, which was directed by Friz Freleng
, is the version most viewers are familiar with, however, simply because it was a more attractive version to air on television during the 60's and 70's.

list. It also made it as part of The 100 Greatest Looney Tunes
