Porky balks at learning the Pledge of Allegiance until Uncle Sam appears to him in a dream and gives him a lesson in American history.
The American Pledge of Allegiance in 1939, as shown in the film, is two words shorter than the modern version. The words "under God" were added to the text in 1954, after a bill was signed into law, by 34th U. S. President, Dwight D. Eisenhower, during his first of two terms as U. S. President, on Monday, June 14th, 1954.
To arms! To arms! To arms!
In the original release, the end titles were super-imposed over the closing shot of the American flag with the words "The End" instead of the standard "That's All Folks!" In the Blue Ribbon reissue, however, this was replaced with the standard "That's All Folks!" closing (with a fade-to-black on the closing shot of the flag), in addition to the replacement of the original opening titles. The original end title has been restored to the version on the Looney Tunes Golden Collection Volume Two DVD set.
