| A Porky Favorite from Tex
Here is another favorite Porky Pig cartoon from 1937 after seeing it for the first time on YouTube. The cartoon was directed by Tex Avery, and it was his last one until "Porky's Preview" from 1941.

The story goes that Porky and a stereotypical Italian chicken farmer compete for the price for "Largest Home Grown Product" at the County Fair. The farmer tried putting vitamins and supplements in the feed; but his chickens wouldn't go for it. Since he wasn't going to play fair, the farmer let's his chicken brood loose on Porky's garden to feast upon.

I love it when a chick morphs into a Popeye look-alike after he ate spinach; then gave a bully chicken his/her comeuppance. I also love how Porky fends off the chickens save a pumpkin, like in a football game. So anyway, I like this Porky short and give it 7 stars.
