Plot Summary:
Porky and Gabby are about to deposit their savings in the bank when a shyster sells them a lot that's full of oil because he planted it there. Meanwhile, a dog trying to bury a bone has lots more luck finding oil than Porky and Gabby until the shyster shuts off the oil-filled sprinklers. Meanwhile, Gabby hits oil for real and rides his jackhammer into the swindler's pants causing him to drop the deed.

Review:
This cartoon isn't really that funny and the redrawn version makes it really empty.
Watching this cartoon next to one of Clampett's later cartoons makes you wonder if he really did direct this!
The gopher looks like it's from he...ck.
