Western Animation: Porky in Wackyland
aka: Porky In Wacky Land
"It CAN happen... here. Population, 100 nuts and a squirrel."
—Signpost on the border of Wackyland.

Porky In 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 4000,000,000,000note . 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 and released in 1949, is the version most viewers are familiar with, however, simply because it was a more attractive version to air on television during the 1960s, '70s and '80s.
