"Porky Pig's Feat" is a one-reel animated cartoon short subject in the "Looney Tunes" series, produced in black-and-white and released to theatres on June 13 1943 by Warner Bros. Pictures. It was produced by Leon Schlesinger and directed by Frank Tashlin, with musical supervision by Carl Stalling. Originally released in black and white, clips of a digitally-colored version of the cartoon were seen in bonus features for the first two "Looney Tunes Golden Collection" DVD box sets, before finally being issued in its original monochrome form on the "" DVD.

This cartoon was colorized in 1968 by having every other frame traced over onto a cel. Each redrawn cel was painted in color and then photographed over a colored reproduction of each original background. The animation quality dropped considerably from the original version with this method. The cartoon was colorized again in 1990, this time with a computer adding color to a new print of the original black and white cartoon. This preserved the quality of the original animation.

The title is a play on the food, "pigs feet".


"Porky Pig’s Feat" contains the first use of the music "Powerhouse" in a cartoon. [ [http://raymondscott.com/WB.html Raymond Scott's Music in WB Cartoons | Official Raymond Scott site | RaymondScott.com ] ] Composed by Raymond Scott, "Powerhouse" became iconic through its use in over forty Warner Bros. cartoons.


The cartoon centers around Porky Pig and Daffy Duck's attempts to escape the Broken Arms Hotel manager without paying their bill (on which they are charged for every luxury, including air). Daffy Duck gambles away all his money in a game of Craps while in the elevator. Because Daffy now has no money, he cannot pay the bill; therefore, he and Porky try to escape by way of many zany gags. The hotel manager eventually gets the upper hand and locks them up in a hotel room until they pay up. Winter is approaching, and Daffy is beginning to lose his sanity. Porky (after writing "Porky Loves Petunia amidst the graffiti on the wall) suggests they call Bugs Bunny for advice. Daffy concurs (even going so far as to say, "Bugs Bunny: my hero!" in what would later become an out-of-character moment) and tries to call the rabbit for advice. But as it turns out, Bugs Bunny himself (in his only original black-and-white appearance) is locked up in the room next door.
